2013 Signature Syrah
YAKIMA VALLEY AVA
Showing qualities of crushed stones and deep, dark fruits like boysenberry, blackberries, cracked pepper, and black olive, this is a very European-style Syrah. In addition, exotic notes of burnt citrus, freshly crushed vanilla bean, red apricots, and new leather enhance the dark fruit core. Although this vintage is young and muscular, generous flavors are already developing and filling the mouth giving a hint of what is to come, a very complex Syrah.

"The 2013 Doyenne Syrah Signature is a beauty. Ripe, layered and nicely concentrated, with lots of
black cherry and blackberry fruits, smoke, peppery herbs and olives, it hits the palate with medium to
full-bodied richness, polished tannin and a clean, lengthy, elegant finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. It's beautiful today, but should be at its best from 2018-2025."
