2017 Damsel Boushey Vineyard Syrah
Vineyard: Boushey Vineyard, Yakima Valley AVA.
An award-winning favorite! Bold and dark with a fruit-driven style and a velvety mouthfeel. This complex wine is bursting with ripe blackberry and subtle aromatics of smoky, cured meat and savory dried herbs. Perfect for strongly-flavored preparations of lamb or slow-roasted pork shoulder and any soft blue cheese is a delightful pairing.
Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck,com, “The 2017 Syrah Boushey Vineyard is also a textbook example of the variety. Lots of black fruits, smoked game, and pepper notes all give way to a medium-bodied, nicely textured, balanced, lively Syrah that's going to keep for 7-8 years. - It’s beautifully balanced and an outstanding wine.” 91 points
Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker Wine Advocate, "With a delightful nose, the 2017 Syrah Boushey Vineyard opens with a high-toned expression of red fruit with a juicy savoriness and floral note brought on by the use of whole-cluster fruit. Medium to full-bodied, the wine shows a soft stemminess with classic black pepper elements that are delightful, showing a balanced and delineated structure across the mid-palate. Ending with a long, spicy finish, flavors of black peppercorn and black cherry linger with an element of dusty florals in the mouth." 91+ points
