Chateau Ste Michelle Ethos Syrah, Reserve, Columbia Valley, 2008

In 2008, we once again experience a cooler vintage bringing patient, gradual ripening and length hang-times. The result was rich fruit with beautiful acidity reminiscent of old world elegance. This vintage is 100% Syrah and sourced from two warm sites: 54% from our estate vineyard, Cold Creak, and 46% from Stone Tree Vineyard. Aged 20 months in new French and American oak. - Bob Bertheau, winemaker. Alc. 15.0% by vol. Produced & bottled by Chateau Ste. Michelle, Paterson, WA, USA.
