Description if Custom-Designed

On the nose this wine abounds with dark fruit, root beer and a touch of grape candy along with baked black cherries laced with anise. The palate moves from red plum to more dark cherry on the mid palate to a hearty and well balanced finish of smooth tannins embedded in dark and fruity pipe tobacco.

    Syrah often is the secret sauce behind many of the Pacific Northwest’s top proprietary red blends, and the winemaking tandem of Robert Delf and Robert Smasne make it the lead grape (60%) in this blend from Spofford Station, Tasawik and Verhey vineyards. That Rhône red allows for aromas of Marionberry syrup, cola, toast and white pepper with a hint of game. Inside, there’s more Marionberry, backed by black currant and blueberry. Sandy tannins, pomegranate acidity, tobacco and dark chocolate combine for a rewarding finish.

    Kirkland vintner Bob Delf continues to focus this blend on Syrah (60%), but there also are significant contributions from Carménère and Petit Verdot, which help to make this a rather complex offering. Aromas of boysenberry, chocolate-covered blueberry include pinches of anise, horehound and green peppercorns along with leather. The drink is full and rich from start to finish with sweet black cherry and vanilla flavors and well-managed chocolaty tannins. These wines are available at their shared tasting room in Spokane at Nectar as well as Totem Square in Kirkland.
