Owen Roe Ex Umbris Syrah Columbia Valley 2017

External Review by We Speak Wine:

THE STORY BEHIND THE LABEL: This wine was introduced as a one-time bottling in 2002 after a wild fire struck the vineyard’s surrounding hillsides. The residual ash and smoke resonated in the Syrah grapes, creating a very memorable wine. Year after year, we are asked to develop a Syrah to keep the story of this wine alive! We hope you will enjoy this bold Syrah comprised from several exceptional vineyards in the Columbia and Yakima Valleys. TASTING NOTES: Wow, what a beauty! This 2017 Syrah shows deep purple hues in the glass and mouthwatering aromas of candied sugarplum and fresh red raspberry swirl throughout. The slight slate and vanilla notes are interlaced with juicy flavors of blackberry jam, Bing cherry compote and subtle hints of cocoa nib. A mouthcoating Syrah from another hot summer in the Yakima Valley has our crew asking for more! This is a delicious full-bodied, yet elegantly structured Syrah that is enjoyable now. For cellaring time, we suggest drinking now through 2025. Aged: 8 months in neutral French oak barrels. Alcohol: 14.1%

Owen Roe:
Since our first vintage in 1999, Owen Roe winery has been working to produce exceptional, hand crafted wines. We are especially committed to the low vigor hillside vineyards of Yakima Valley Washington. These vineyards yield fruit with low pH and high acidity, both harbingers of age-able wines.
