This marks the ninth bottling of the flagship wine for Earl and Carrie Sullivan at Telaya Wine Co., and the Garden City brand used this Syrah-based blend to win best red wine at the 2018 Idaho Wine Competition. Aside from the Syrah (63%) from Sawtooth Vineyard and Skyline Vineyard’s Block 46, it’s supported by Malbec and Merlot from Scoria and Daniel vineyard. The youthful red that spent 20 months in 20% new French oak barrels carries a theme of deep blackberry, blueberry and plum flavors with a silky tannin structure and bright acidity, a delicious combination. The Sullivans have scheduled this to be released after Labor Day.
Production: 600 cases
