Chris Daniel Winery 2014 Petite Sirah/Syrah, Columbia Valley, $25

By on January 2, 2018

Napa winemaker Chris Daniel Stewart and his father, Michael Sean Stewart, opened their winery last spring in Quincy, Wash., and they’ve enjoyed delicious success with its first vintage. This Rhône-style blend that leads with Petite Sirah (67%) offers aromas of cooked red plums, cigar box, amplified by flavors of huckleberry, blueberry, Saskatoon berry and orange zest, all backed by fine-grained tannins and bright red fruit acidity. It won gold and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards.
