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.
