Ross Andrew Winery 2013 Boushey Vineyard The 15th Vintage Syrah, Columbia Valley, $30

By on January 9, 2017

Ross Andrew Mickel hails his 15th vintage of working with Dick Boushey’s highly coveted fruit, and the Oct. 16 pick of the subsequent 10 barrels spent 16 months in French wood. It’s fruit-forward, creamy and bright as a result, opening with a nose of blueberry licorice, Orange Creamsicle, black cherry and chalkboard dust. Inside, there a marvelous blend of blueberry and blackberry flavors, accented by light toastiness, pepper and a tingly raspberry acidity. This wine is available at Precept Wine’s tasting room in downtown Walla Walla for Browne Family Vineyards, Cavatappi and Waitsburg Cellars.
