2018 Washington Syrah 14.50% Alc. by volume
Wahluke Slope AVA - Columbia Valley, WA 100% Syrah aged XXX months in a Bourbon barrel 500ml
“Wait...what is this? I smell vanilla. I smell caramel. I smell Peanut Butter. Is this a Port? Why is the bottle so small? This reminds me of my grandpa!” These are just a few of the comments that our tasting room guests have made when tasting Washington State’s ORIGINAL Bourbon Syrah - Fool's Gold. Pam loves to experiment…and after a Tennessee distillery tour in 2015...she came home and put her discoveries to good use by storing her go-to wine - Syrah - in Bourbon or Rye-Whiskey barrels. Both varietals are potent - and unless you disdain spirits - they will warm hearts and souls with a lovely nose and mouthfeel to complement any pre- or post-dinner event. This 2018 version was in the Bourbon Barrel for one year and had our wine club tasters screaming “Reese’s Pieces”, and “Dairy Queen’s Peanut Buster Parfait”!!!
Whatever you taste – know that the Bourbon barrel does magic to the Syrah wine – and IT IS NOT A PORT! Fools’ Gold can be enjoyed before, during or after a meal (usually one including some pretty heavy meat).
Oh...and it will leave your guests smiling and asking for more – so be sure to pick up a couple of bottles; you’ll want to have them on hand to surprise your guests with one of Adrice Wines’ most favorite wines!
Suggested pairings: already shared – Reese’s Pieces – or a Dairy Queen Peanut Buster Parfait!
