2016 Chapel Block

Add To Cart

This most sought-after block of grapes is iconic in NW viticulture. The concentration and balance of Syrah from this site is world-class. Farmed by the Washington pioneer of the Syrah grape, Mike Sauer humbly and professionally gives us perfect fruit year in and out. The Chapel Block Syrah stands toe to toe with the finest in the world and will satisfy those who enjoy powerfully complex wines and the reward of long-term, cool cellaring.

Aged 12 months in 43% new French oak barrels. 345 cases made. 


A blast of blue fruit and classic Red Willow earth fill the glass with brilliant notes of blueberry and brambleberry aromas. Flavors of blackberry fruit leather and violet are nicely layered within a velvety texture interladen with hints of star anise and black pepper. A little young now, but will continue to develop if opened and decanted for 1 hour prior to enjoyment. Cellaring time will benefit this wine for a decade or longer. Drink now through 2029+.

Wine Club Price $46.75.
