Scores & Tasting Notes

“Mmmm,” is my reaction to this super-saturated Syrah. Crushed coal diamonds, black currant and green olive laid out before you in a seamless celebration of Washington wine. –Winemaker Charles Smith

98 Points, Top 10 Wines – James Suckling

“Happy to see it finer-grained than some, but equally intense. Tobacco, ash and dark fruit. Some grilled meat, too. Full-bodied with a spice, white-pepper and hunan finish. Wow is all I can say! Drink or hold.”

97 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)

“Coming from a mix of clones and the Northridge Vineyard (which is a high-density planting), the 2017 Syrah The Hidden was not destemmed and was brought up 20 months in 55% new puncheons. Deep ruby/purple, with killer minerality in its black cherry and currant fruits as well as notes of beef blood, violets, spiced meats, and spring flowers, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful elegance and purity, fine tannins, and a great finish.”

Vineyard – Northridge

(Wahluke Slope, Washington State Red Wine; 100% Syrah, 14.5% Alcohol)
Loamy, fine sand over silica limestone, these ancient soils above the Missoula Flood plain are some of the best to grow fruit. This site is higher elevation and has cooler evenings, which creates later ripening, lots of minerality and concentration. A hidden gem!
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.


2017 was a fantastic year for making wine with a cool spring and a fair amount of rain. Washington had an ideal spring for healthy vines. The moderate temperatures during summer were perfect for small clusters and yet delayed veraison into the fall where we had a consistent ripening season that allowed us to hang the fruit for perfect tannin and flavor without losing acidity or acquiring too much alcohol. Overall it was a vintage to remember.
