Rasa Vineyards Qed Red 2007
This wine is a beauty displaying wonderful purity of fruit, a gorgeous mid-palate and a long, enticing finish. It’s a wine with impeccable balance that will drink well young and age beautifully. The majority of the Syrah fruit comes from the Les Collines Vineyard in Walla Walla with Syrah from Seven Hills Vineyard (Walla Walla) and Lewis Vineyard (Yakima) playing supporting roles. A little bit of Mourvedre and Grenache (both from Minick Vineyards in Yakima) help fill out the wine and give it more structure and nuance.
