Gramercy 2017 Lower East Syrah

$ 24.99

Winemaker Notes

Immediately hits you with savory notes of bacon fat, roasted meat, black olives, tar and black peppercorn backed by fruit notes of marionberry, ripe bing cherry, black currant and wild mountain berries. Subtle hints of fresh thyme and violets. On the palate this wine is all about mouthfeel. There are no hard edges. It’s smooth and silky. Tannins pick up a bit on the back end and the acid compliments the palate weight to give this wine a seamless finish. Blend: 85% Syrah, 15% Carignan

Critical Acclaim

Wine & Spirits
This is from Greg Harrington's tier of wines meant to broaden the winery's regional reach to the Columbia Valley. The blend comes from Les Collines, Forgotten Hills and Holy Roller vineyards—the latter a new parcel owned by Chris Figgins, in The Rocks. The wine leads with scents of mocha and olive—the Rocks showing its stuff—while the flavors feel a bit warmer, with a seductively plush texture, limned by violet-and-rosemary-scented tannins. Drinking beautifully now; serve with lamb.
