2017 Cab Syrah - Comforts of Whidbey
When we put this blend together, we intended it to be 50/50 with a few barrels of our 2017 Horse Heaven Hill Syrah and our 2017 Red Mountain Cab (both in new American Oak). A week long cold soak on the Syrah gave us such a big wine that it overwhelmed the Cab! We had some ‘16 Wahluke Slope Cab in neutral barrels that we had intended to bottle separately - until we blended everything together. Still young, but settling down nicely, this is a wine to put in your cellar for years to come.
