2004 Syrah, Boushey Vineyard
We love working with Boushey Vineyard for the depth and incredible fruit quality that is grown on this unique site. This enticing Syrah truly expresses what Boushey Vineyard is all about: Opulence! It has a certain “je ne sais quoi” that teases your palate begging for just a little more! When it comes to cellaring, our 2004 Syrah will become even more exquisite with additional years in the bottle.
On the nose, aromas of dark plum, blackberry and rich, dark chocolate. But once on the palate, it opens with big and intense flavors of violets and blackberry followed by delicate earthy notes that linger all the way through the long and incredibly smooth finish.
Our 2004 Boushey Syrah is truly meant to be accompanied with food and we have a few suggestions to tempt your taste buds. Try this with a mesquite grilled hanger steak with a Syrah reduction sauce, roasted duck breast with a spiced huckleberry jus or wild Chinook salmon with chanterelle mushrooms. Be creative with your pairings, but most importantly, enjoy the beautiful wine in your glass!
