A thrilling Syrah as well as a smoking value, the 2010 Syrah comes from this new winery’s estate vineyard which located in the Rocks region of southern Walla Walla Valley, not far from Cayuse Vineyards. A 100% Syrah that spent 16 months in a scant 20% new French oak, it offers up a wild array of plum, hung game, pepper and lavender that flows to a full-bodied, ethereally textured palate that has knockout richness, awesome freshness and a light, detailed profile that’s oh so easy drinking. Utterly captivating, with a La Mouline-like suppleness and texture, this brilliant Syrah needs to be purchased by the case. It will continue to thrill for over a decade. Drink now-2022.
