Our 1.5 acre Syrah block at Portteus Vineyard is the 2nd oldest planting of Syrah in Washington State; 22 years of age this harvest. The nose leads with the aroma of a dewy forest at dawn. The palate is earthy yet fruity with notes of wet river rocks and plums. The finish is lingering with a hint of pink peppercorn. This wine is showing incredibly well now and will only continue to evolve for the next few years if you can wait! Start drinking now through 2022.
