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 this fruit, showcasing the elegant and savory side of Syrah.
2014 Le Corbeau Winemaker Tasting Note— This new Syrah in our lineup features a great purity of blackberry and plum fruit, while not lacking in compelling secondary notes of scorched earth, bacon fat, wet stone, and fresh mountain flowers. On the palate, this wine is dense with grilled blackberry, meaty notes, blood orange, and mineral notes. The lifting acidity and structure on the finish promise a long life for this exciting wine.
