Yakima Valley in eastern Washington State has produced some very good wines and this is evident in Buoy Vineyards Sleeping Dog varietals. Like the title “Sleeping Dog” there are some sleepers in the cellar!
The 2010 Syrah from Sleeping Dog is medium bodied, ruby colored, medium intensity, with raspberry and red fruit notes. It is an if dry wine with balanced acidity and tannins. Although a short finish, very satisfying! This paired Perfect with our smoked chicken and soft mozzarella cheese! We give this Syrah 4 glasses.
