The 2021 Levitation Syrah is 100% Syrah, sourced from two amazing high elevation vineyard sites; Lewis Vineyard (74%), in the Yakima Valley, and Les Collines Vineyard (26%), in the Walla Walla Valley. The wine has an impenetrable dark violet-purple color that leads to an explosion of primary fruits like freshly picked black cherries, raspberries, and boysenberries. The bright yet concentrated entry shows hints of orange rind and aromas of fresh herbs, roasted meats, andmbacon fat. This is a candidate for the cellar and will reward you 12-15 years down the road, but if you can't keep your hands off, you won't be disappointed! As always, Levitation Syrah is best enjoyed with great food, music, and friends.

The 2021 Syrah Levitation opens with a dark-fruited nose layered with meaty and spicy elements of summer sausage, plum compote, notions of red and black spices and hints of lavender and dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is juicy, mineral and fresh with elegant umami essence, pure expressions of blackberry skin and dried herbs and a firm tannic edge. The wine concludes with a long-winding and stony finish. It's a fantastic wine that will benefit from being paired with food.

Polished and compelling, this red is elegantly structured yet loaded with personality, offering flavors of raspberry, fruitcake spices and licorice that build tension and richness toward medium-grained tannins. Drink now through 2032.

The tangiest boysenberry aroma ever highlights an aromatic set that includes wisps of rosemary, lemon and crushed brick dust. Fine-grained tannins and snappy acidity back flavors like cherry pie, roasted pork shoulder and black pepper. Make the Levitation disappear with a steak and fries, now until 2034.

The 2021 Syrah Levitation Reserve is dark and savory, wafting up with black olive, seared meat and violet aromas. It flows across the palate like pure silk. Pretty inner lavender and lilac notes accentuate ripe blackberry fruits. This tapers off with a sour citrus flourish, adding contrast as grippy tannins resonate through the long and floral finale. The 2021 shows the vintage condition through its rich fruit and edgy tannins, yet the balance is nicely maintained.
