This is a gem from winemaker Bob Bertheau; Syrah seems to be his red. Sharp, spicy and beautifully precise, this is packed with tart berries and peppery spice. The new oak builds in more spice and sweet toast, while the tannins add earth and leaf to the mix. It's supple and forward and fruit driven, with power and precision.

Lean and crisp, with juicy acidity to balance the ripe plum and currant flavors, which persist beautifully and expressively on the open-textured finish. Hints of cream and spice make it even more interesting.

The 2004 Syrah "Ethos" was aged for 20 months in 80% new oak. Opaque purple, it has a classic aromatic array of smoked meat, bacon, sausage, and blue fruits. This leads to a layered, full-bodied wine with gobs of peppery fruit and intense flavors. The wine is mouth-filling and structured with enough tannin and fruit to support 3-5 years in the cellar. Drink this Hermitage-like wine through 2024.

This very limited companion to the winery’s Ethos Chardonnay marks a turnaround for Ste. Michelle’s red wine program, as Bob Bertheau came on board just before the 2003 crush. The style is seductive, sharp and spicy; the tart fruits tumble out in a pile of mixed berry and cherry. Chocolate and baking spices add more flavors; the wine is seamless, smooth and long; the oak beautifully integrated.'

Supple in texture and lively in flavor, with a distinctive gamy edge to the luscious blackberry and black olive flavors, which extend through the long, polished finish.'
