Last bottle at the restaurant and it was offered to us at retail cost. Have never heard if this wine but do know about the association to Dave Phinney and Prisoner. A great treat. Voluminous floral bouquet. Lots of dark fruit with a slight touch of tobacco. Some heat upon opening and mellowed with time. Had some left for the next day and it was still very good. A lucky day!
My favorite syrah of the evening, decanted through a vinturi and let sit for an hour and a half, dark fruit and spices on the nose, the palate was, plum, blueberry, blackberry and spiced tea. A long finish accentuated with spices.

We look forward to the release of this wine every year, what’s been dubbed our state’s “baby Grange”.
Produced by John Duval (the legendary figure behind 28 years at Penfolds, many of them as the chief winemaker for Grange) in collaboration with Allen Shoup’s Long Shadows project, Duval named this wine Sequel to commemorate his next progression with the Syrah grape. In his mind, the Columbia Valley and its patchwork of vineyards is a close approximation of the plots he used to create Grange - thus his eager excitement over the potential of this project.
Needless to say, the 2007 Sequel is his best foot forward – it’s a definitive and refreshing New World wine that does not rely on heavy residual sugar for impact - rather, a mesh of animal, terroir, “dry” extract and deeply penetrating fruit that rings on the palate for a long, long time...
A special example from our state that should age very well over the next 10-15 years:
