Wine of the month: Kerloo

Kerloo 2009 Les Collines SYRAH

Vineyards: The astonishing fruit used to produce this Syrah is sourced from Les Collines Vineyard (block 30 and 50) located 5 miles east of Walla Walla. Meaning “the foothills” in French, Les Collines is a 240-acre vineyard sustainably farmed and certified salmon safe with steep elevation changes from the base of the vineyard to the top. This site offers a unique and distinct flavor profile which made crafting a vineyard-designate Syrah ideal.

Vintage: 2009

Blend: 100% Syrah, 20% whole cluster fermented

Alcohol: 14.3%

Price: $36-$37/bottle

Tasting Notes: This is our third vineyard-designate wine from Les Collines Vineyard. The goal with the whole cluster fermentation was to bring some stemmy/earthy tannin structure while the whole berry fermentation was stylistically done to capture the purity of fruit from these amazing blocks. This wine shows intense black licorice, smoke, blueberry, boysenberry, light game and fresh-cracked pepper. Seamless on your palate, this wine showcases elegance with just the right amount of MUSCLE (not unlike the winemaker)!
