Silvara Vineyards 2015 Syrah, Columbia Valley $32

By on December 19, 2018

Leavenworth vintner Gary Seidler collaborated with the Fore Feathers Wine Estates team in Prosser for this stunning Syrah pulled from Zillah Ranch Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills and McNary Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. The historically hot 2015 vintage allowed Tom Merkle’s crew to pull off all of this Syrah by Oct. 1, making for an intense and penetrating drink of deep purple fruit. Crunchy tannins allow for notes of toffee, lime peel and Horse Heaven Hills chalk, and the reward is a finish of Cherries Jubilee. Suggested pairings include firm cheeses, robust meat such as beef, lamb, venison or dishes featuring nightshades such as bell peppers, eggplant and tomato.
