Deep red black with a vibrant edge, La Serenne has plenty of tannin and density, but its cool site plushness is irresistible. La Serenne has always been a single vineyard, single clone Syrah, emerging from our long partnership with Dick Boushey. Its purity and sense of place define this wine. While its common for La Serenne to be closed down aromatically and brooding at this age, in 2013 the wine already shows more generous flavors and refined texture.
-Since our first vintage in 1997 we’ve had a single minded goal of crafting compelling wines with individual character that are approachable and ageworthy, and which showcase Washington as a distinguished wine region of the world. “The estate's Yakima Valley Syrah, the 2013 Syrah La Serenne spent 11 months in barrel before being bottled last November. Schedule to be released this fall, it has intense, yet fresh and lively notes of violets, spring flowers, cracked pepper, iron and sweet black and blue fruits. Full-bodied, pretty, lively and nicely focused, give it a year or two and enjoy bottles through 2028.”
