Tasting Notes

Our most age-worthy Syrah? Certainly in the running. Atoosa’s is a wine that requires a bit of cellar patience for the full range of cool-climate spice to emerge. A young bottle of Atoosa’s is almost scary deep in color – a brooding, seemingly immortal opaque purple void. Give it some time to evolve in a decanter and your patience will be rewarded with a wonderfully savory blend of creamy black and blue fruit, Asian spice, bramble, smoke and lifted blue floral notes.

In the cellar, we use very little new oak and ferment a good portion of these grapes whole cluster to accentuate the savory, earthy goodness that the cool-climate vineyard naturally provides. We’ve had a love affair with this vineyard since 2011 and are sad to report that 2019 will be the last vintage of Atoosa’s from EK. That said, we’re happy it will go out on such a high note. Time to stock up before it's gone forever!
