Tasting notes

Syrah and Viognier, co-fermented and loved up with a deep smooch of Cabernet Sauvignon, shines in our 2018 Ruckus Syrah.Deep black and blue fruited with notes of menthol, stone, all wrapped in firm silky tannins. From vaunted vineyards: Ciel du Cheval, Discovery and Kiona. Delectable in its youth and destined for a long and increasingly complex life, we expect it to evolve as far as the eye can see, or longer.

Food pairing: Classic French country cassoulet, vegetarian Shepherd’s pie

Movie pairing: Pulp Fiction

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
Once upon a time there was a syrah called Stella Mae. As demand for syrah began to taper off a bit, we decided in our third vintage to align our girls' wines on either side of the Gironde, even though it is nowhere near Woodinville in the name of family harmony. So, in 2006, we made Ruckus, our Red Mountain syrah blended with a touch of cabernet sauvignon.
