Between snow and holiday activities, work and way too much flat out BS, I haven't been to Walla Walla in two months. Looking like no chance to get my Grape Hill fix for another six weeks. This hurts!!! The only blessing I can name is that I tasted our 2008 syrah from the barrel this morning. Le Ballet Russes dancing in the mouth. Oh my!!! I expect to pull it off the oak early and let the fruit stay light on its feet. What pretty, silky wine...so soft and lush, yet still powerful...a beautiful woman, firm with her strength.
