Forgeron Cellars Syrah Columbia Valley Boushey Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

We love working with Boushey vineyard for the depth and incredible fruit quality that is grown on this unique site. This enticing Syrah truly expresses what Boushey vineyard is all about: Opulence! It has a certain "je ne sais quoi" that teases your palate begging for just a little more! When it comes to cellaring, this Syrah will become even more exquisite with additional years in the bottle. On the nose, aromas of dark plum, blackberry and rich, dark chocolate. But once on the palate, it opens with big and intense flavors of violets and blackberry followed by delicate earthy notes that linger all the way through the long and incredibly smooth finish.

Marie-Eve says, "My wines have a sense of place, they reflect their terroir which is composite of the vine location and the grower dedication. I practice minimal intervention winemaking, enabling each grape to fully express itself. Using this winemaking philosophy allows me to craft food friendly wines of great character." Read less
