James Suckling Review
This Washington State syrah manages to combine almost perfectly great wild blackberries with the smoky and black-pepper aromas of the variety. Then comes the stunning interplay of crisp and lively tannins with serious concentration of spice and fresh acidity on the palate, which ignites the super long finish. It tastes like 13.5 per cent alcohol rather than the actual 15 per cent! Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
Our Estate Syrah marries dark aromas of earth, olive, tobacco and white pepper with pretty floral notes of violet. The rich mid-palate shows flavors of ripe plum, and dense blackberry that give way to a concentrated and unrelenting, earthy mineral finish.
