Pleasant Hill owner/winemaker Larry Lindvig grew up across the Puget Sound in the Norwegian enclave of Poulsbo, Wash. He’s now emigrated as far east as Carnation, where he uses grapes from the dry side of the state to produce delicious wines. This Syrah opens with aromas of rose petals, chocolate, cherry, bacon and sweet leather. On the palate, it delivers big flavors of bold blackberry, spicy cherry, boysenberry and even Australian black licorice. It’s all backed with sturdy tannins and opulent acidity.
