PROFILE

This cool-climate French Syrah offers nuances of dark fruit, savory depth, and cocoa. The pallet is rich and dark with juicy red fruits and a lively, long finish. This wine is the epitome of balance, with nicely integrate fruit, oak and alcohol. Structured to last, this wine will cellar well into to the 2030’s. Winery

TASTING NOTE

A deep inky purple in color with aromatics of woodland blackberry, black pepper, subtle Mexican vanilla, and freshly cut flowers. As you sip you find restrained, yet dense, rich and complex flavor profiles of dark black fruits, cappuccino, and bittersweet chocolate. This long on the palate classic Syrah finishes with medium length and moderate supple tannins. As with previous vintages of our Anvil by Forgeron Syrah from the Boushey Vineyard, this wine is built to last.

BOUSHEY VINEYARD

 

Generally south-facing, this vineyard is located 10 miles west of Red Mountain in the Yakima Valley AVA. The Boushey Vineyard sits atop fractured basalt and soil consisting of silt loam, windblown loess, and deposits from the Missoula floods. The elevation at the highest point of the Boushey Vineyard is at 1,400 feet and combined with layered soils and mild temperatures that allow for longer hang time, the resulting fruit presents amazing phenolic ripeness. Wines made from these grapes are well-balanced with lower alcohol and better acidity, and offer an unblemished expression of the varietal fruit.

The Syrah from the Birdhouse Block at Boushey Vineyard brings to life the true essence of the varietal. Every year we are elated when this fruit nearly ripe as tasting the fruit in the vineyard paints a picture of how the wine will develop in your head. Once the fruit is handed to us we guide it through the fermentation process and proudly present you with this wine.
