2021 WILD EYED
92 POINTS - NORTHWEST WINE REPORT
On the nose, aromatics of boysenberry, black currant, and roasted meat. Dark plum and baking spice flavors follow with a note of salinity and dried herbs on the lingering finish.
Quintessence & Angela’s
Quintessence and Angela’s vineyard provide the fruit for the 2021 Wild Eyed Syrah. The combination of four premium Syrah clones give us wonderful blending tools in the cellar. Clone 383 oers 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 its amazing purity and intense profile. Our goal with the Wild Eyed is to offer a glimpse of warmer climate Washington state Syrah.
