2013 Les Collines Syrah

2013 Les Collines Syrah
2013 Les Collines Syrah
This Syrah comes from the Les Collines Vineyard in the Walla Walla AVA of Washington. This is one of Washington’s premier vineyards, with 240 acres of sustainably farmed grapes found at altitudes as high as 1380 feet. They have their own weather station where they are running ‘round-the-clock data checks on soil, moisture, and wind to ensure peak conditions.
 
Because we don’t know any other way, we treat this Syrah like Pinot noir, applying the lightest touch in the winery, and letting the grapes and place do the talking. Syrah has a voice that is deeper that Pinot noir, but don’t be fooled by the bass. This is a complex, brooding, and vibrant wine that fills a different space than what we normally do. There’s a symphony in there if you are willing to listen. 2013 was a warm year in Washington, but one that cooled as September began, which helped control sugars and keep the acid balanced. At a higher altitude, the grapes saw less heat, but a good bit of sunlight.
 
This wine will reflect those conditions with opulent fruit, but a lively brightness will keep them tense. Expect dark, complex fruit, graphite, expressive and bold tannin, and a spicy, lush texture that lasts for days. Worthy of the cellar, but drinking with drive now.
