2014 "GINGER MAN" SYRAH

THE STORY OF THE GINGER MAN

When my brother and I were younger, I occasionally referred to him as the "Ginger Man" because he has red facial hair.  This didn't always go over well.  He could be pretty fierce, hence the label warns "BEWARE THE GINGER MAN."  It's all in good fun, and wine keeps him calm.  He's a big fan of Syrah, so I named this one after him.

ON THE PALATE

METHOD 

This Ginger Man was infused with fellow Walla Walla Valley-grown Grenache throughout barrel-aging, adding a touch of southern-rhone gaminess. Aged for 18 months in 20 percent new American oak and blended with a small dose of Horse Heaven Hills Syrah just before bottling.
