As always, contributing photographer Richard Duval roamed the wine regions of Washington during the past several months, capturing scenes from harvest. Among the thousands of images he took are two Syrah picks on the same day, though miles and hours apart.
The first, from a brisk early morning pick, was at Dineen Vineyard in Zillah, with the fruit headed for Orenda Winery in Carnation. This was followed by an early afternoon pick from the Discovery Vineyard, nestled along the Columbia River in the Horse Heaven Hills.
