Tasting notes

2019 Darkness Syrah is a massive, deep, dark, silky, spicy, very nice wine. Deep purple, heavy metal thunder, with aromas of blackberry liqueur, umame, iodine, sweet oak and smashed rock. It offers generous and intense flavors of Mission figs, boysenberries, Asian five spice, and morel mushrooms. The texture is rich and supple, yet well structured. Designed to give plenty of pleasure today and even more in coming years.

Food pairingGoat cheese polenta with morel sherry vinaigrette or cassoulet with lots of duck and sausage

Movie pairingThe Shining

Darkness is our full throttle, wide-open desert island syrah from the Yakima Valley. Dick Boushey and Leif Olsen are arguably among the finest syrah growers in our universe today. We decided to make this wine in 2005 and have never looked back. It has gobs of high scores from many publications, including a 94 from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate for the 2014. It's called Darkness because.
