2013 "GINGER MAN" SYRAH

100% Syrah

Walla Walla Valley 

ON THE NOSE

A spicy bouquet of white pepper, allspice and cinnamon accompanied by smoky cedar, lavender, blackberry and plum.

ON THE PALATE

Intense flavors of black fruits and cabinet spice lead to a rich mouth-feel with smooth tannins and flavors of plum, orange peel, mint and cured meats on the finish. 

METHOD

This rich and textured Syrah was whole-berry fermented with approximately 15 percent whole-clusters in small bins, allowing for a slower ferment, longer extraction and an extra dose of tannins from the stems.  Blended with a splash of Horse Heaven Hills Syrah, the Ginger Man was bottled without fining or filtration to preserve flavor and aromatic integrity.
