Beautiful black fruits highlighted by savory notes of soy, leather and exotic spices. This variety really likes the Washington state heat, and the 2009 vintage was a classic for the region. The mouthfeel is always rounder and softer than expected, making it a varietal that our winemaker, Bob Bertheau, loves to blend.

2008 Stone Tree Vineyard Syrah
Our Stone Tree Syrah is what I like to call ‘Syrah in the raw’. Made with 100% Syrah fruit from the Wahluke Slope, this is a rich, powerful wine with an earthy nose and big fruit flavors. With a slightly higher elevation and a beautiful, southern slope, this site gives Syrah of depth, breed, and amazing peppery complexity. A “perfect” ripening season with full crop yields, and restrained sugar levels led to out- standing wines from Washington State in 2008. Enjoy this full-bodied wine with pepper-crusted steak.
2014 Austral White Wine
This rhone-style blend of Marsanne (60%) and Rousanne (30%), delivers richness and structure showing stone fruit and ripe melon flavors. A touch of Viognier (10%) provides layers of peach and minerality. All wines were barrel fermented and aged for five months in neutral oak.
2013 Dry Gewürztraminer
This dry style of Gewürztraminer presents the celebrated spicy ginger and clove aromatics of a classic Gewürztraminer mixed with hints of rose, lychee and pink grapefruit. Half the wine was fermented in stainless steel to capture these classic fruit notes, and half in neutral oak barrels for added complexity and richness on the palate. Selected cool sites in Washington’s Columbia Valley yield bright, aromatic Gewürztraminer fruit.
2012 Chenin Blanc
This beautifully balanced vintage allowed these older vines to produce a complex yet fruit driven wine with aromas of melon fruit and just a touch of spice. The palate has refreshing fruit and natural crisp acidity followed by the fresh and soft finish.
