The Foundry Syrah Stellenbosch 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is deep, opaque purple-ruby in color. The exotic bouquet offers enticing hints of wild herbs, dark berries, and plum with a pronounced savory, spicy character. The rich, yet elegant palate displays seductive brambly fruit flavors and complex meaty notes that carry through on the lengthy finish. While drinking beautifully now, this Rhone-inspired bottling boasts structured, silky tannins that will enable it to age gracefully for up to 10 years.

Beginning in 1998 Mark and Patty Anderson planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes on 3.5 acres behind their home.

Beginning in 1998 Mark and Patty Anderson planted Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes on 3.5 acres behind their home. Initially, most of the grapes were sourced out to other Walla Walla wineries, but in 2003 they decided to hold back some of the fruit to create a small amount of wine that would commemorate the work of their clients at the Walla Walla Foundry. The inaugural vintage, a blend of Cabernet and Merlot grapes from their Stonemarker Vineyard, featured label artwork by renowned artist Jim Dine. The relationship between Dine and Anderson has been forged over twenty years, and it only seemed fitting that the first vintage celebrated their friendship. In the years that have followed, Mark and Patty have increased the number of bottles they produce, but intend to keep their focus on small lot production. Mark, who holds a degree in studio art from Whitman College, found the winemaking process similar to the process of making art. FV is strengthening the relationship between art and wine by combining inspired winemaking with a complimentary visual aesthetic. In early 2009 Mark and Patty Anderson brought Squire Broel on as a winery partner. Squire, a visual artist and life-long wine lover, will add his aesthetic vision to this exciting wine project. Foundry VIneyards is commited to the creative production of high quality wine that reflects the richness of the Walla Walla Valley. It's our intention to continue exploring the inspired similarities presented in both wine and art making. Read less
