Winemaking Notes

We used entirely Syrah grapes for this wine, harvesting the blocks between mid-September and early October. The fruit was destemmed and transferred to small lot stainless-steel tanks and one-ton bin fermenters. During fermentation, we utilized pump-overs on the tanks and punch-downs on the bins for intense extraction of color and flavor. Malolactic fermentation was completed to create more complexity and a rounder mouthfeel. All lots were barrel-aged in 225-liter barrels for 15 months in a combination of 59% French, 24% American and 16% Hungarian oak barrels, 30% of which were new. This blend of barrel styles contributed layers of texture to the finished wine.

Tasting Notes

Our Horse Heaven Hills Syrah opens with aromas of jammy dark fruits and a subtle hint of toasted oak. The rich, bold palate is luscious and fruit-driven with notes of boysenberry, dark plum and spice. A plush mouthfeel leads the way to a lasting finish. Enjoy this wine with savory red meats like braised beef or a roasted leg of lamb.
