Levitation – Sleight of Hand – Syrah
The 2017 Levitation Syrah is 100% Syrah from Lewis Vineyard in the Yakima Valley AVA and Les Collines Vineyard in tWalla Walla AVA. Aged for 16 months in a combination of concrete tank and large format barrels (27% new French oak), the final blend includes about 10% whole cluster, footstompedbunches. The resulting wine is exotic and aromatic. Dark-purple/magenta/neon in color, it is full of ripe raspberry, blackberry, and dark cherry aromas and flavors, buoyed by bright floral notes, and savory herbal and pepper undertones; all of which is backed by perfectly integrated fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. The finish is persistent and lengthy, and this wine should age beautifully for the next 10-15 years.
