Critic's Rating 91 pts

Tasting Note: A full body powerful wine with notes of black fruit, forest floor, coffee, thyme and black current.

Recommended drinking 2020–2026.

The grapes for this wine were hand selected from individual blocks of Lawrence Vineyard in the Frenchman Hills. This unique site produces Syrah with black, earthy tones. Power and elegance dance and build layers of depth in the wine.

Sourced from the Lawrence Vineyard in the Frenchman Hills of Columbia Valley, WA, Tender Hope Winery’s Midnight Black Syrah shows savoury dark fruit, black cherry, prunes, menthol, and an earthiness on the nose. Great depth and struture, with dark fruit, blueberry, pepper and anise notes persisting on the finish. Midnight Black Syrah has both Rhone Valley and Bordeaux characteristics, but is proudly West Coast. Enjoy 2020-2027 with grilled and braised beef dishes. Tasted May 2020.
