2013 Keegan's Blend

Keegan's Blend is an assemblage of our two best barrels of Syrah from the 2013 vintage.  One barrel is from the Dutchman Vineyard (planted in 1991 and is the second oldest Syrah Vineyard in Washington State) and the other barrel is clone 877 Syrah from Olsen Ranch Vineyard.  Enjoy through 2027.  The artwork was created by our middle daughter, Keegan, at the age of 9.

100% Syrah from Olsen Ranch and Dutchman Vineyard.

Artwork by Keegan Isenhower, age 9.

Tasting notes

Keegan’s Blend has a deep purple opaque hue; it impentrable to light. It is truly a beautiful artistic wine. Aromas of dark fruit with a nice floral lift overlay. The mouthfeel is dense and lively with richenss and depth. Fine to medium tannins that build along the way supporting an even finish with nice length. It has an appealing tension between plush fruit to start and good tannin structure. Keegan’s Blend Syrah is a statement of style that is more of beauty than the earthy/funky style that seems in vogue.
 

Production notes

Both lots of Syrah were hand harvested and hard sorted. The Dutchman Syrah had 25% whole clusters pitchforked in the bins. Native yeast was allowed to conduct the fermentation and only the free run wine is in Keegan’s blend.  We use French oak burgundy barrels (33% new) to age and develop the Syrah and allowed the wine to age sur lie for 16 months prior to bottling.
