The 2017 Syrah Ex Umbris is purple-colored with superior aromatics of smoke, game, bacon, and blueberry. Smooth-textured and medium to full-bodied, on the palate the fruit is layered and the flavors spicy and savory with some elegance. It can be enjoyed over the next 6-8 years.
The winery was founded in 1994 and David O’Reilly is the winemaker. He makes extensive use of DuBrul Vineyard grapes, an under the radar but superb site in Yakima Valley.
"The 2017 Ex Umbris has a pure core of dark fruit with lighter floral aromas that pop over the blackberry, cassis and currant notes. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine is softly smoky, with hints of spicy flavors dotting the mid-palate, showing a good core of minerality that builds in the mouth. It ends with a focused finish with a balanced structure and subtle tannic grip." Robert Parker 89 Points
