Betz Family Winery La Cote Rousse Syrah 2016
|Region||United States, Washington, Red Mountain|
|Brand||Betz Family Winery|
The 2016 Syrah La Côte Rousse reveals notes of purple flowers, crunchy dark berry fruit and cracked pepper, followed by a medium-bodied, youthfully chewy but fine-grained palate that's bright and chalky. Taut and concentrated, it will require-and reward-some patience.
Tightly wound and trim, with blueberry, stony mineral and spice flavors that finish with a slight tannic grip. Best from 2021 through 2024. 400 cases made.
Pure blueberry, huckleberry, flower, herb and olive aromas are followed by light, ripe but still fresh dark fruit flavors surrounded by dense, slightly gritty tannins that need time to unwind. It's equal parts intrigue and delivery, seeming to need some time in the cellar to come together.
