As with the 07, this vintage has the same co-fermentation with Viognier ó right around 2-3%, and naturally I have to have 30% whole cluster fermentation. The difference is that itís a combination of Lewis Vineyard and Desert Hills Vineyard, which is owned and managed by Den hoed family (Dan Nichols). You canít see through this dark Syrah, however, itís balance is remarkable. Aged in a combination of a 550 liter Cadus puncheons (French oak) and neutral oak, it makes for a real ageable and complex wine. Aged for 20 months, never fined or filtered, prepared for some tasty sediment later in its life. - the winery

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Like Cayuse and Reynvaan? Then you really should try the new Black Cask Syrah 07 from O'Shea Scarborough. Less fruit bomb, more character.

Dense black fruit, grilled herbs, leather, oil-cured olives, candied violets, meat, graphite - tremendous complexity. Even with the hefty black and blue fruit, this Syrah stays vibrant and fresh. An excellent value in a truly unique Washington Syrah. ONLY 94 CASES MADE. Co-fermented with 3% Viognier. - Marcus
