2016 K Vintners Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard

Washington | Syrah
"The 2016 Syrah The Deal comes from the sandy, loamy soils of the Wahluke Slope and has classic earthy notes of spices, forest floor, dried herbs, hot stones, and a crushed rock-like sensation of minerality. Full-bodied, concentrated, and opulent on the palate, it has a beautiful balance between richness and elegance, fine tannins, and a great finish. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years."

"This is from the Sundance Vineyard, which has volcanic, sandy soils at a higher elevation than the surrounding plots. The nose has aromas of crushed dried flowers and bright red berries that follow to the palate where a streak of sweetly spicy oak threads into the ripe, composed and elegant red-plum finish. Drink over the next decade."

"The 2016 Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard opens with black peppercorn ground over a bowl of black fruit, with aromas of cigar ash and savory herbs with dark purple flowers. Medium to full-bodied, the wine expands in the mouth to show a rich but chewy palate with lush fruit and grippy tannins across the back. It ends with a grippy finish that will take some time to come around or will be best enjoyed with food, now. 1,189 cases made."
