A luscious blend of Syrah from two different vineyard sources -- the cool-climate, late-harvest McIntire Vineyard, near Sunnyside in the Yakima Valley; and the warm-site Alder Ridge Vineyard along the Columbia River. The warm Columbia River site contributes exuberant boysenberry-like fruit; grapes from the cool-climate Yakima Valley site, harvested a full month later, provide firm tannins and extraordinary richness.
