This wine has a smoky smell that’s fuller than most Syrahs, is medium bodied, and smooth going down.   There are better Syrahs for the price, which is $20. 

 

The Winery (Tasting Shop), located at Friday Harbor is great to visit with friendly passionate owners available for stories and tasting notes.  You could tell they loved what they do, having left jobs in Missisipi to purchase this winery and move to the San Jauns. 

 

Here are the winmakers notes.

“This is a robust, dry red with notes of spice and berry. We released only 100 cases of this wine. It is terrific with hearty foods such as grilled beef or barbequed dishes. The Australians call this grape Shiraz .”

 

You can taste the spices upfront on the first sip.  Enjoy.
