Dussek Syrah 2016

$ 19.75

A family-run winery that blends character, balance, and warmth into passionately producing extraordinary wines in the heart of Woodinville, WA in the Columbia Valley AVA. Columbia Valley is one of Washington’s largest AVAs, and receives over 300 days of sunshine per year.  The sub-appellation of Rattlesnake Hills within the Columbia Valley is where much of the fruit for this wine is sourced.  Rattlesnake Hills AVA has a slightly more temperate climate, and sandy loess soils produce wines with pronounced aromatics.

  • Grapes from Hyatt Vineyards in Rattlesnake Hills
  • Aged for 13 months in neutral French oak
