Rosé of Syrah
Rattlesnake Hills AVA
Our 2015 PORCH is a Rosé of Syrah from Konnowac Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA. This wine was fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel tanks. For me, the name PORCH signifies a wine that can be enjoyed on a sunny day on the porch, deck or patio –– or wherever you find your peaceful solace. We even break out a bottle of this Rosé in the dead of winter when we just need to put our spirits into a summertime mood.
This Rosé of Syrah was whole-cluster-pressed in order to minimize skin contact time which would develop a lighter color, however, came out with a light pomegranate color that is darker than most traditional Rosé wines. As it swirls in your glass, the wine gives aromas of warm strawberry fields. Flavors of cranberries balanced with dark black plum freshen your tastes, finishing with slight tannins and a hint of spice –– key characteristics of a Washington State Syrah.
