Winemaker Notes
Quintessence, Angela’s and Olsen vineyard provide the fruit for the 2022 Wild Eyed Syrah. The combination of five premium Syrah clones gives 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. Clone 470 adds intense smoke, spice, and dark fruit notes. The Phelps clone ties the wine together with its amazing purity and intense profile. The addition of Quintessence vineyard grenache lends lifted floral aromatics and fantastic richness to the palate. Our goal with the Wild Eyed is to offer a glimpse of warmer climate Washington state syrah. The wine was fermented in 1.5, 2 and 5 ton open top fermenters for 7-10 days. The wine was lightly pressed to barrel where it finished primary and secondary fermentation and was aged for 18 months in 29% new French oak barrels. The wine was racked twice and left unfined prior to bottling.
