2014 Scotsman Syrah
Discovery Vineyard Syrah
To truly capture the strength of the Scotsman, the 2014 vintage is sourced for the first time from the beautiful hillside of Discovery Vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA of Washington. Grown overlooking the Columbia River, these grapes were toughened by the windy site and ripened beautifully with the generous southern exposure, creating a wine that is powerful and full of flavor. The nose is a mix of sweet and savory character, with mineral aromatics distinctive of Syrah - all balanced by a healthy compliment of sweet, toasty vanilla. True to its name, the wine is muscular on the palette. We enjoy the Scotsman with lamb, grilled meats and spicy barbecue.
