stemilt creek winery ascent syrah 2014 label - Stemilt Creek Winery 2014 Ascent Syrah, Columbia Valley, $45The Mathisons’ son-in-law, Robin Graham, took an active role in the winemaking at Stemilt Creek as founding vintner Jan Mathison stepped away. Their vineyards, planted at 1,600 feet in the hills surrounding Wenatchee, set the table for cool-climate example of Syrah. Hints of blackberry jam, maple syrup drizzled on bacon and sun-dried tomatoes come with a structure that’s rich and round with sweet tannins and finish of pie cherry, clove Necco wafer and cola.
