Distefano Syrah Columbia Valley 2005
100% Syrah<br/>433 cases produced<br/>We are so excited of offer this new 100% varietal Syrah. Very smooth and velvety with lots of black cherries, strawberry jam, and blueberry. Delicate overtones of violet mingle with vanilla and hints of old leather that add beautiful layers to this pleasant aromatic bouquet. The palate is really juicy with refined tannin, and spice. Finishes smooth, and lingers for a long time on the finish.
The DiStefano Winery is a part of a group of wineries located in the Woodinville valley producing high quality white and red wines made from classic varietals grown in Washington State.
Had this wine at dinner with a friend, his evaluation was "Better than my father-in-law's wine and less bitter than my wife". My review was a little more concise. :-) Cherry, smoke and a bit of spice. Medium finish with strong tannins. Could definitely use a bit of time.
