Kestrel "Falcon Series" Syrah Yakima Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The color is inky purple as always. In the aroma and on the palate you will find an abundance of ripe fruit flavors such as black currant, dark cherry, blackberry, leather, spice, cocoa, vanilla and jam.

We opened our winery in early 1999 on three acres in the Prosser Wine and Food Park. Our winery building is 15,000 square feet, which includes a 13,500 square foot cellar, tank, warehouse and barrel area as well as a 1,500 square foot tasting room, gift shop and office. We opened our doors as a 3,000 case winery and are now at approximately 35,000 cases. We are predominately a red wine producer with 90% of our production in Lady in Red, our red table blend, as well as our red varietals - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. The remaining 10% is in Platinum - a blend of Gewurztraminer and Viognier, as well as Chardonnay and Viognier varietals. Barrel aging plays an important part in our wine production. Our wines are aged one-to-two years in the finest French, American and Hungarian oak barrels and provided bottle aging prior to release. Read less

Kestrel's wines seem to always come off as hard to beat values, no wine more so than this. The wine is soft, with plenty of fruit from red to blue to black. There's a hint of leather and black pepper but not too much. Anyone looking to break into Syrah would be hard pressed to find a better Intro wine.
