Jacob Williams Winery, noted for their award-winning wines and awe-inspiring views from their brand new tasting room, has announced the release of their 2010 Syrah. Raised, bred, and handcrafted entirely in the magnificent Columbia River Gorge, this Syrah is sure to delight.
“Our Winemaker, John Haw, captured the gentle, yet piquant essence of a well-appointed Syrah in this special 2010 release,” said Owner, Brad Gearhart. “And this Syrah is heavier on the black and white pepper than our 2009 Syrah.”
The tasting notes on Jacob Williams Winery’s 2010 Syrah read like a savory French recipe: Big and rich with flavors of black and white pepper, mineral spices and dark cocoa present a truly complex and intense wine fabulous now, but even more amazing with age.
Noted for their exclusive use of grapes from the Columbia River Gorge AVA, Jacob Williams Winery used grapes from the Hi-Valley Vineyard in The Dalles, Oregon, where the climate is hot and dry in the summer, and cold and dry during the winters. At an elevation of 500 feet, the 15-year-old vines enjoyed an average annual rainfall of fifteen inches.
“The 2010 Syrah goes beautifully with steak, or any grilled meat for that matter. So well in fact, I love hosting BBQ’s at the Tasting Room. We encourage wine lovers to sip and savor our Syrah while gazing at Mt. Hood from our new wraparound patio during our events,” said Gearhart.
Guests can enjoy these festivities at Jacob Williams Winery’s newly constructed tasting room that sits above the beautiful Columbia River boasting panoramic windows including a wraparound patio with outdoor seating. Inside resides a large U-shaped bar and cozy seating where visitors can sample all of Jacob Williams award-winning wines.
