Stevens Winery Syrah Black Tongue Yakima Valley 2011

Member Review by Matt Walker:

Hope you like massive structure (I do) because this wine has it! The wine has plenty of deep, rich, dark fruit but this wine is really about the tar, smoke, licorice and pepper. Those that love very fruity Syrahs should stay away, this is quite dry.

After working as a commercial artist, now Winemaker, Tim Stevens found his passion through a meandering path of twists and turns. While returning to school to study English Literature, Tim worked at a fine dining restaurant where his love for food and wine flourished. After becoming more and more immersed in wine, he found himself involved in a tasting group where he met Matt Laso of Matthews Cellars. In 1998 Matthews Cellars hired Tim as an Assistant Winemaker, where he worked for two years. Then in 2000, an opportunity presented itself to work with another friend, Scott Greer of Sheridan Vineyard as a Winemaker Consultant along with Chris Camarda from Andrew Will Winery. The year 2002 brought the birth of Stevens Winery when Tim along with his wife Paige, decided to jump feet first(pardon the pun) into a project of their own. Like other boutique wineries, their focus is to create a small lots of ultra-premium table wines from grapes grown by growers who have the same passion and desire to produce fruit that produces distinctive flavor and quality indegenious to the land. The Tasting Room is open Saturdays 12 pm - 4:00pm Read less
