K Vintners Rock Garden Syrah 2017
|United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley
This great site in the Rocks region of Walla Walla has produced a gamey, meaty 2017 Syrah Rockgarden that sports a medium ruby/plum color, Hermitage-like notes of blackcurrants, graphite, smoked game, pepper, and leafy herb, medium to full body, ripe, powerful tannins, and a great finish. There are just 361 cases made, but it's a brilliant wine.
Rockstar juice, the 2017 Syrah Rock Garden Vineyard shows whole-cluster expressions with high-toned red fruits, a floral and mineral lift, black raspberry, soft oaky nuances and aromas of black pepper, cured meats and roses. Medium to full-bodied, the wine offers a vibrant and lively mid-palate that is balanced and shows tight tannins followed by flavors of bitter black tea, blackberry and cracked pepper. Ending with a long, winding finish, this Syrah is going to be a crowd-pleaser at this price. Absolutely delicious.
