Syrah / Shiraz

750 ML


Product Description

The 2006 Nina Lee Syrah starts off with an elegant, earthy nose of wild grass and wheat, the traditional wheat harvest effect for those who dont understand this, just come visit Spring Valley sometime. A huge mouthfeel of ripe, fresh and tar-black fruit follows. This is a textured wine with the support of acid and plenty of fine grained tannins. The generous finish is pure sweet vanilla. Enjoy!

The name Walla Walla means "rapid stream" or "many waters". In addition to grapes, this area is almost a major agricultural producer of sweet onions, wheat and strawberries.
