From: Yakima Valley, Washington
Varietal: 100% Syrah
The story of this wine. For our taste, no one grows finer Syrah in the state than Dick Boushey. We make this wine with minimal manipulation using native yeasts, bottling unfined and unfiltered, to allow the “place” to shine through. We named this wine after the Provencal Troubadour, Arnaut Daniel, who invented the Sestina poem form, thus creating a connection between our two flagship efforts.
Tasting Notes: “This vintage brings a fresh, lively version of the Boushey terroir. The nose features dark blueberry and plum, crushed violets, and hints of roasted meat, and smoky mineral notes. On the palate, the vintage really shows itself, with lifted blue fruit, floral and savory umami notes, featured on a medium weight frame that expands as the wine opens up. The palate is silky with those signature Boushey tannins, echoing with blueberry preserves, candied licorice, minerals, and seared bacon fat. This wine could still use a couple of years in the cellar, and then be consumed over the next 10-12 years. It looks to be a worthy addition to the Arnaut vertical.” - Chris Peterson, Winemaker
