2017 Columbia Valley Syrah

  • Sale
  • Regular price $25.00

Our Columbia Valley Syrah is the muse that started the whole operation that is Two Vintners. One of the original three wines, the Columbia Valley Syrah is the motor that drives our winery. A blend of amazing vineyards each with their own unique qualities that swirl together into an seamless wine that displays Washington Syrah at its finest. Aged in a mixture of neutral French oak barrels and 500 liter puncheons.

Again in 2017 we were able to source our Columbia Valley Syrah from four different AVA’s, resulting in what we feel is a true example of Washington Syrah. Our production of this wine grows with each vintage and is our largest yet. Primary sources for this wine reside in the Yakima & Walla Walla Valley and give this wine an unbeatable combination of funk, earth and fruit. All blocks of Syrah were fermented using native yeasts and approximately 30% whole cluster.

91 points - Wine Enthusiast Editor's Choice (2015)- "This is a pan-Washington Syrah, with fruit coming from Olsen, Pepper Bridge, Discovery, Dineen, Stone Tree, Boushey and Stoney Vine vineyards. It's a bit closed up on first pour, with notes of spice, dried herb, dark fruit, orange peel and whiffs of smoked meat. The palate is seamless in feel, gliding along with fruit and savory flavors that persist on the lengthy finish. It brings a very pleasing understated quality—a rare find at this price point."
