||Syrah / Shiraz, Viognier
92 Pts Wine Spectator
"Taut, with a vibrant tension between the blackberry fruit and glints of olive, tar and mineral notes, melding smoothly on the expressive finish. Drink now through 2021. 258 cases made." reviewed Dec 15, 2013
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
"96% Syrah, 4% Viognier. Aromas of cocoa-dusted chocolate truffle, Bing cherry and blackberry cobbler draw you in while notes of leather, hickory and violets provide intellectual satisfaction. Velvety black fruit coats the tongue with opulent freshness, backed up by melted chocolate. Fine tannins provide weight while balancing the chocolate and plum through the lengthy finish."
About Loess Vineyard
Loess (pronounced as "Luss") Vineyard we previously an estate vineyard for Leonetti Cellars. This area is about 1,100 feet near the Blue Mountains. 100% Loess Vineyard, Leonetti Estate Syrah. Planted in 2001 and named after the vineyard's main oil structure. The Figgins family focuses on low intervention and low irrigation for this spot. They brew their own compost tea and have planted biodiverse indigenous plants to attract the proper bugs. The
vineyard is both Vinea and Salmon Safe certified. The site is 23 acres at the foothills of the Blue Mountains on a steep south facing slope allowing for longer late afternoon sun exposure. Classic Rhone-savory, gamey, meaty notes from here. Nights are cooler, including later in the season, leading to bracing acidity and long aging potential.
Wine Maker Jamie Brown
After assisting at Glen Fiona, Dunham Cellars, and Pepper Bridge, Brown was encouraged by friends to start a winery of his own. He founded James Leigh Cellars (now JLC Winery) in 2001 and then Waters Winery in 2005. Having worked in the restaurant industry, Brown naturally gravitated toward wines that were more food friendly and European in style with lower alcohol and higher acid levels. While many winemakers have gone in the opposite direction, Brown decided to go against that trend. He says, âI wanted wines that were more out of the backbone of acid. If it meant less extraction and color so be it.â
From the beginning, a large part of Brown's focus as a winemaker has been on single vineyard syrah. Syrah, which particularly in Washington is extremely expressive of site, appealed to Brown from an artistic point of view. Brown says, "Single vineyard Syrah, to me, seemed to have the most potential for that type of expressive nature. "While somewhat of an unusual choice commercially, for Brown, it followed an inner vision. Brown credits his love of music for helping him make this choice. He says, "Music was a huge influence on me. I liked things that werenât super commercially successful but I thought that they were right." (Washington Wine Report, July 22,2010)
