Wine Review: This Excellent pitch black colored Syrah from Washington State blew way its competition is a mini Syrah tasting that we recently conducted. It opened with a mild, yet attractive boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, smooth, and elegant. The flavor profile is a delicious blend of black raspberry and blackberry with notes of oak and black pepper throughout. The finish is dry and its smooth tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine made by John Duval of Grange fame, would be a perfect match for filet mignon and steamed red beets. Yum! - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A generous and concentrated wine of great character, the 2006 Sequel is notable for its deep purple hue, rich aromatics and layers of flavor. Almond, dark chocolate and cherry notes fill the glass, complemented by hints of black licorice, blackberry, cocoa powder and a touch of smoke. Great complexity on the palate with a lengthy finish, this is a refined wine of beauty and balance.
