We take great pride in tending to our 2000 acre estate vineyard, and strive to craft wines of exceptional balance, flavor and value. Our vineyard’s reputation for producing award-winning wines stems from 60 years of farming and 30 years of wine growing experience. Over 60 years ago when Louise and Bob Andrews began farming the land her parents had acquired after World War II. They planted grapes in 1980, and soon after developed an award-winning reputation for the vineyard’s wines. In 1986, three of their children, Rob, Sandy and Scott, and their spouses, founded Andrews and Rowell with the mission of continuing the family farming tradition. They established McKinley Springs Winery in 2002 with a goal of producing balanced, flavorful wines offering excellent value. Today, four members of the fourth generation are also involved in the family business. Read less

I bought a case of this in 2008 and it was a very smart move. Syrah is a favorite of customers and other wineries who buy grapes for their own Syrah.

I enjoyed the 2003 in July of 2011. It's the oldest Syrah I've had and enjoyed it immensely. Classic Horse Heaven Hills Syrah (my favorite AVA.) Big and bold, fruit forward in a subtle way with a smooth, mellow and elegant finish. Great with food but something this special is best enjoyed on it's own as a sipping wine.
