The Lenore Syrah shows the more opulent and balanced 2014 vintage with its fruit forward attack and rounded, rich mid-palate texture. Aging in predominantly neutral French oak maintains the bright berry and savory aromatics of this wild, gamey varietal.
Corvidae is the Latin name for the family of birds that includes the Crow, Raven, Jay and Magpie. These "dark" birds are everywhere in the vineyards of Eastern Washington. Their reputation as crafty, adaptable, and somewhat dubious characters is a fitting icon for our suspiciously terrific value wines from this region. The geology and climate here yields rich, complex fruit, with luscious fragrance and bright acidity.
So be wise like the crow and enjoy these great wines from the Pacific Northwest.
