2016 Tenor SyrahSyrah loves to grow in Washington State, and we wanted to create a Syrah that showcases the best characteristics of what has become one of Washington’s signature grapes. We’ve worked hard to find that profile that gives people the essence of everything they love to taste in a Washington Syrah, all in one bottle. Tenor Syrah is a Syrah-lover’s Syrah in that it is a balanced and complete expression of everything that varietal can be: seductive and opulent, but still remarkably fresh and nuanced. This is a Tenor wine, so it’s big on texture and un-apologetically fruit forward, but tempered by well-integrated acidity and ultrafine tannins.

"Very attractive and modern with dark plums and blackberries, abundant spices and tidy oak treatment, all making for a complex young syrah. The palate has deep flavors, presented in a tidy, fresh and assuredly balanced mode. Drink over the next decade."
