Popped and poured. Dark, dark ruby in color. Hint of heat on the nose, with lovely dark berry and smoke. Very thick and just coats the mouth in flavors of blackberry, smoke and wood. Finish is long, and although it has some alcohol heat, very nice.

[Blind Syrah tasting - I _think_ this was the '05] Deep syrah nose. Refined taste, almost cabby. Dark fruit, very complex and balanced. Medium tannin and acid. Quaffer. Medium+ alcohol.

I tried it over two years ago, loved it, and have been searching for it again ever since. Full of fruit, yet bold and smoky. Everything I ever wanted from a Syrah and phenomenal price.

Winemaker's Notes:

Ex Umbris is Latin for “out of the shadows”. This wine was originally crafted to express the smoky notes imparted to the Syrah grapes by a raging wildfire. One of the characteristics of this noble grape is its inherent smokiness, a flavor that comes through even without Mother Nature’s assistance. Art DenHoed’s Erickson Road Vineyard, Mike Sauer’s Red Willow Vineyard, and Joe Hatrip’s Elephant Mountain Vineyard in western Yakima Valley yielded Syrah with tremendous richness. It was then balanced by the cooler, smoky Lewis Vineyard in The Dalles, and the unctuous fruitiness of Alder Ridge Vineyard in Alderdale, WA. A fabulously aromatic and full-bodied Syrah!
