Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored Syrah from Washington State is Excellent! It opens with a fragrant blueberry and black olive bouquet with hints of oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and rich. The flavor profile is a delicious blend of blackberry and blueberry with notes of oak and black olive. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Syrah would be a perfect match for a thick veal chop. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 Deuce shows the best of Les Collines Vineyard combined with a bit of Rocks fruit. Fruit & funk. We truly believe it is one of the top 5 Syrah vineyards in Washington state. We are privileged to have Blocks 50, 46, and 36 on the slope. Fermented with 80% whole cluster, the wine was aged for 18 months in neutral puncheon and 225L barrels. The 2012 is the most intense and structured Walla Walla Syrah to date.
