Capo Creek Syrah 2017
Sit back and inhale the Capo Creek Syrah 2017! Beautiful notes of red fruits, cassis, and baking spices. Just in time to pair with cool nights so throw a log on the fire and enjoy! Medium weight and light on its feet, this wine is all about verve and spice. The fruit is soft and delicate, and takes a back seat to the umami-filled, mineral-driven, savory Syrah flavors. Very exotic and intriguing with a haunting quality to it…very special stuff!

Owen Roe Ex Umbris 2017$29.00Add to cart
The Owen Roe Ex Umbris was introduced as a one-time bottling in 2002 after a wild fire struck the vineyard’s surrounding hillsides. The residual ash and smoke resonated in the Syrah grapes, creating a very memorable wine. Year after year, they are asked to develop a Syrah to keep the story of this wine alive! Now, more than 10 vintages later, we hope you will enjoy this bold Syrah comprised from several exceptional vineyards in the Columbia and Yakima Valleys. The Ex Umbris 2017 is a great expression of the bold fruit flavors from that year. Bursting with aromas of red plum, blueberry and pink peppercorn. The palate is filled with refreshing flavors of fresh summer blackberries, currant, and dark chocolate with noticeably structured acidity and silky tannins.
Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Rouge 2017$34.00Add to cart
Patelin is French for village or community and the Patelin wines from Tablas Creek use fruit from neighboring vineyards as well as their own. The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas is a blend of four red Rhône varietals: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Counoise. The wine incorporates fruit from several of the top Rhône vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like many red wines from the Rhône Valley, it is based on the dark fruit, mineral and spice of Syrah, with the brightness and fresh acidity of Grenache, the structure and meatiness of Mourvèdre and a small addition of Counoise for complexity. The 2017 Patelin de Tablas has a dark, Syrah-driven nose that is creamy, meaty, minerally, and a little bit wild. A little blue fruit lurks underneath and comes out with air. The mouth shows both Grenache and Syrah's influence, with black plum, boysenberry, chalky minerality and nice powdered sugar tannins that come out on the finish. Decant if you're drinking now, or age for up to a decade for secondary and tertiary flavors of meat and earth. Very Highly Recommended – Dan Berger's Wintage Experiences.
