Tunnel Hill Winery 2014 Syrah, Lake Chelan, $30

By on September 16, 2016

tunnel-hill-syrahTunnel Hill is a charming family operation on the southern shore of Lake Chelan. A visit to the tasting room includes a beautiful stone building and soothing water feature. This Syrah jumps out of the glass with classic Côte-Rôtie aromas of cured meat and boysenberry. ON the palate, it is a hedonistic red with flavors of blueberry, black tea, black pepper and ripe plum. It’s all backed by firm yet balanced tannins that provide refinement on the finish. This won double gold at the 2016 Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival wine competition.
