Syzygy Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2006

Member Review by Burgerandfrey:

The bouquet has luscious berry with a hint of vanilla mint and something else herbal. Chewy with lots of ripe fruit up front that is countered with coffee and a touch of tobacco and licorice. Balanced a little more towards the fruit at this date. There is some heat from the alcohol, but it doesn't overwhelm the other flavors that come through. Soft tannins round out the finish. We really enjoyed drinking this now, but I think it will be even better a few years from now.

Pronounced “szz-eh-jee”, our name refers to the moment of perfect alignment between three celestial bodies, such as that occurring during a total solar eclipse. This concept of alignment is fundamental in our approach to winemaking – different varietals and diverse vineyards blended together in perfect alignment. Owner and winemaker, Zach Brettler, produces very limited red wines from vineyard sources expressing diverse terroir, including sites in Walla Walla, Horse Heaven Hills, Red Mountain and the Wahluke Slope. Our bottled wines include a Syrah, a Cabernet Sauvignon, and unique red blends (including the recent addition of Malbec and Tempranillo). SYZYGY began production in 2002 with 600 cases and has grown to approximately 2000 cases in our current vintage. All wines are made “crush to bottle” at our facility located near the Walla Walla airport. Read less
