2017 Syrah Walla Walla Valley

A floral bouquet of dark plum, eucalyptus and leather emerges from the glass. At once, juicy pomegranate greets the palate and is met by notes of black walnut and spice. Firm tannins integrate well with red and purple fruits which rhythmically entwine, building in complexity through a full, peppery finish.

Wine Profile
Ratings
"Bright red-ruby. Reticent aromas of black raspberry, red cherry and flowers, complicated by hints of licorice and cumin. Moderately dense and juicy, showing lovely spicy definition to its red berry, red cherry and floral flavors. This rater polite, smooth Syrah shows little in the way of meaty wildness but is intense, shapely and moderately sweet. It's also easier to enjoy at this stage than the 2016 was a year ago, but will it reveal the same slow-ripening complexity in the long run? The tannins are firm but fine-grained and nicely buffered by the wine's fruit. A bit sweeter and more open-knit than the '16, finishing with very good subtle length. Like the 2016 Heather Hill Cabernet, this wine was made entirely from estate fruit." Stephen Tanzer, 91 pts.
