Syrah or Shiraz is a dark-skinned grape grown throughout the world and used primarily to produce powerful red wines.
The grapes came from my vines,
the cherries from Hood River Oregon.
the lees is from a previous batch of wine, Kahlua- a coffee and vanilla bean wine,
It will be interesting to see if you can taste all the flavors in this red wine.
