Named after the French word for Crow, or Raven, this Syrah is certainly as dark as the name implies. Hailing from Discovery Vineyard, perched high above the Columbia River in the heart of the Horse Heaven Hills, these grapes were grown in a very unique terroir. Our approach of old-world style, minimalist winemaking allows for full expression of the fruit, showcasing the elegant and savory side of Syrah.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "A smoky, meaty, rich and concentrated beauty that offers terrific notes of blackberries, currants and smoked earth, it has impeccable balance, rock solid mid-palate density, full-bodied richness and a great finish...it should be well worth the effort to track down!" - Jeb Dunnuck
Winemaker Note— "Great purity of blackberry & plum fruit, while not lacking in compelling secondary notes of scorched earth, bacon fat, wet stone, and fresh mountain flowers. Dense - with grilled blackberry, meaty notes, and blood orange. The lifting acidity and structure on the finish promise a long life." - CP
