Winegrower’s Notes
Purple is our favorite color. You know you’re drinking the good stuff when your teeth develop that unmistaken hue. Don’t worry, Chad’s father Dr. Dan Johnson D.D.S. says, “life is too short to stain your teeth on bad wine.” The Stained Tooth Syrah is sourced from some of Washington State’s top vineyards including our Stoney Vine Estate Vineyard on The Rocks and Stone Tree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope. The bouquet floats out of the glass and draws you into all the extraordinary fruit while the ripe tannins provide a silky finish.
