2012 Smasne Cellars Block #4 Syrah

Coyote Canyon- Horse Heaven Hills

“In 1996 my passion for Syrah began.  Over the years I have had the honor to work with Washington State’s Syrah pioneer, David Lake, and one of the true Syrah greats, Christophe Baron of Cayuse.  Like Syrah itself, each is unique, and it is experiences like these that have shaped my individual winemaking style.”  -Robert O. Smasne 

Tasting notes

The Block 3 Syrah from the Lawrence Vineyard is 100%  Native Fermentation Syrah that is carefully crafted to produce a   refined syrah, rather sexy, unveiling layers of soft berry fruit, ripe raspberries, black jelly beans and hints of spice all wrapped around a core of delicate oak.  Co-Fermented with 5.8% Viognier, it is feminine and supple, with floral notes, soft tannins, beautiful dark fruit and a silky smooth finish.  Fermentation on 46% stems adds complexity with earthy olive and dark fruits.
