    Syrah 2011 VintageWines NorthwestChuck HillJuly 22, 2014

    Chuck Hill- "It is lovely to see the Idaho wine industry growing, and the winemakers crafting flavorful wines from the Snake River Valley AVA.  Founded by the Pintler family – longtime Idaho agriculturists – it became part of Corus Estates (now Precept Brands) in 1998.  Expansion of the estate vineyards followed.  You can visit the winery near Nampa, Idaho and perhaps join in their Farm to Fork celebration on August 22.  This value-priced Syrah is a great pairing with grilled meats showing aromas and flavors of dark cherry and plum, toasty cedar and earthy mineral."

    tasting notes

    A rich and developed Syrah that marries notes of dark fruit with savory spices. Earthy undertones guide the way to a well rounded finish with an integrated tannin structure.
