Some notes here from Powers site regarding the wine:
Tasting Notes: Intense, darkly extracted color with complex aromas of black currant, plum, boysenberry, vanilla, and a whiff of black pepper. Very full-bodied style with flavors of dark plum, cassis, blackberry, and intriguing spices like cloves and pepper. Long, intense finish of sweet ripe blackberry, currants and spice.
Winemaker's Notes: Syrah gets more interesting each year as we discover the nuances of fruit from different vineyards. We love the ripe qualities from the warmer regions, and this wine really reflects that sweet fruit and concentration from a warm Syrah site balanced by the dark fruit and black pepper character of cooler climate Yakima Valley Syrah. The wine is a blend of Wahluke Slope Syrah from Milbrant's Sundance Vineyard(84%), and Pleasant Vineyard Syrah from the lower Yakima Valley (16%). The Milbrant fruit was fermented using D254 yeast to emphasize structure, while the Pleasant portion fermented with D80 yeast to emphasize fruit extraction. The balance of this wine is impressive, reflecting both optimum ripeness and structure. The wines were in French oak barrels for 20 months (40% new) before bottling in December of 2005. 1500 cases made.
