Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Syrah from Washington State opens with a fragrant blueberry and acai bouquet with hints of flint and wet slate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and smooth. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused spiced black plum and gentle blackberry. We also detected hints of black raspberry and faint minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate grippy tannins stick around for a little bit. The panel suggested pairing this very nice food friendly Syrah with a slow cooked beef brisket or braised short ribs. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2013 Sequel is a classic Washington Syrah, dark garnet in color with lively, colorful aromas and expressive tapenade, cassis and cinnamon flavors that dance gracefully across the palate. Rich and supple in texture, this is a layered, complex wine with a concentrated finish that lasts.
