caveb-syrahWinemaker Freddy Arredondo’s latest Syrah already has revealed greatness by winning gold at this summer’s North Central Washington Wine Awards, and it repeats the feat at the Great Northwest Invite.

In the mouth, it displays blackberry, blueberry, sweet chocolaty tannins, which lead to a mouth-watering, jammy finish.
