Winemaking Notes - Quintessence, Angela’s and Klipsun vineyard provide the fruit for the 2020 Wild Eyed syrah. The combination of four premium syrah clones give us wonderful blending tools in the cellar. Clone 383 offers dark, brooding aromatics and flavors, while Clone 174 brings expansive primary fruits and sweet spice. Clone 877 bridges the gap between clone 383 and clone 174, with beautiful layers of sweet fruit and a dark, savory core. The Phelps clone ties the wine together with it’s amazing purity and intense profile. Our goal with the Wild Eyed is to offer a glimpse of warmer climate Washington state syrah. The wine is specifically aged in thick staved 500-liter French oak barrels. We find these larger volume barrels help create a wine that has a great purity of fruit with improved textural qualities.
