The Arnaut Syrah Boushey Vineyard has been
a resounding success from the start. It was
honored as the Red Wine of the Year in Seattle
Magazine
 in our first vintage, 2010 and the 2012
vintage recently received 96 points from
The Wine Advocate’s Jeb Dunnuck. 
We see this wine as a perfect matching of a great 
vineyard site and grower, with our
non-interventionist winemaking style. The 2013 
Arnaut promises to be a long-aging
and rewarding 
vintage for this wine. 

2013 Arnaut—The nose of this compelling wine 
leads with black cherry, black raspberry, smoked
meats, bacon fat, and notes of violets and crushed
rock. The palate is full bodied but taut and focused,
a rich panoply of mixed black fruits, savory meat
flavors, thyme, lavender, and a taut, minerally
finish with ample structure for the future. This
wine that will be enjoyable young,
but also age 8-12 years.
