We became re-acquainted with Canvasback last month, when we tasted two of their beautiful Cabernet Sauvignons at Taste Red Mountain Woodinville. Consequently, we also met Brian Rudin, their very talented winemaker who is known for making terroir-driven, structured wines with an unmistakable sense of place. As a result of this meeting, Brian kindly shared two of the winery’s outstanding Syrahs. Their fruit is sourced from our two favorite regions, the Rocks District and Red Mountain. Read on for details about Canvasback and our Syrah tasting.
When we think of Saviah Cellars wine, we first think of Syrah. The next words that come to mind are Funk In The Rocks District. That’s because talented winemaker Richard Funk makes earthy, savory, funky Syrahs. Yes, his name is Richard Funk and he owns The Funk Vineyard. And he is one of our favorite Washington state winemakers.
From the special wine, The Funk, to The Stones Speak, to the every-day wine, The Jack, these wines rock. Yes, pun intended. But we recently discovered we adore Saviah Cellars Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon too.
