2016 K Heart Syrah

2016 K Heart Syrah

Price: $150.00

Where do I begin? One sniff sets my mind a reeling! Tanned leather, pipe tobacco, camphor, herb-cured black olives and still yet to taste. Vintage Chanel bag with broken cigarette, N°5 perfume, lipstick and a few loose coins. This supple masterpiece being led to a long dizzying finish. My heart! - Charles

 

Score 98, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate (v2007)
“Sourced from Stoneridge Vineyard in the Royal Slope, it was aged entirely in neutral oak. Earth, underbrush, truffle, brier, game, bacon, and blueberry aromas lead to loaded, super-rich, unctuous, full-bodied Syrah. Mouth-filling, already complex, and multi-dimension, it has exceptional length and impeccable balance. Give it 3-4 years to become a bit more civilized and enjoy it from 2014 to 2027.” —Jay Miller


 

Vineyard:

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Stoneridge (100%): Alluvial fan gravel bed, the site rests above the flood plain of the Columbia River. Under the topsoil is a layer of caliche and basalt 6-12’’ deep, creating a calcium and iron rich media that forces roots to struggle.


Vintage:

The 2016 vintage started early and warm in Washington State. When summer arrived, the season saw cooler evenings that helped retain acidity, extended the growing and ripening period into September and October. This allowed the fruit to gain more complexity and deeper charm without sacrificing the acid or producing higher alcohol content. The vintage has created deeply rich and focused wines that we will be able to enjoy for a long time to come.
