Walla Walla Valley The Unnamed Syrah 2014

This Washington Syrah is really stinky, but some definitely love that.

Showing black fruits with earth, wood, spices, barnyard, vegetables, tobacco leaf and dark coffee.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Short finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

Fruit forward with some earth notes, that make it interesting.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly so be patient.

Would be interesting to try it in 3 years.

92 points Robert Parker. 90 points Wine Spectator.

A blend of 92% Syrah and 8% Grenache Blanc.

13.4% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$65.

Viognier 2019

Very shy fruit presentation with obvious secondary and tertiary notes. Mouthfeel is balanced but flat. Fairly overpriced and nothing exciting going on. Well put together though. — 2 months ago

In the Hills Estate Syrah 2017

Deep, inky Ruby color. It’s 90% Syrah co-fermented with 10% viognier and the funky nose of barnyard and grilled meat gives way to forest floor, blackberry, black olives, black pepper, leather, sage and thyme (yes maybe even a touch of lavender). The connection to the northern Rhône is unmistakable alongside a New World emphasis on black fruit. This is still young and with another couple of years the diverse elements should come together in a glorious package. Long finish — 6 months ago

Stonessence Estate Syrah 2012

Shay A
9.4

I’ve been a fan of Reynvaan wines for a few years now, but this is the first time I’ve had their Stonessence. Their “In The Rocks” bottle has been a favorite and while there are a lot of similarities between the two, I found this to have a more powerful profile, albeit a touch less funk driven aromatically. If you haven’t tried these wines but love Cayuse, these are up your alley.

Pop and pour. Compared to their other offerings, this is 100% Syrah, so nothing is co-fermented. That’s fairly apparent on the nose as it doesn’t have that intensely lifted profile...it still sports classic “Rocks” funk with peppered salami, potpourri, black olive and dark coffee grounds. This comes across darker and more black fruit driven than their other wines, lending more notes of scorched black cherries, teriyaki jerky, iron, and tar on the palate. Great use of stems/whole clusters. I followed this over two days and it was just as gorgeous on day two. Very nicely integrated. Likely in a peak drinking window where it should reside for a few more years easily.

@Jason and Jennie : You’ll likely be a big fan of this. I need to find more.

@Betsy Schermer : I hope to make it up there soon and share wine with them. Love their style!

@David T : Some Schrader and Continuum...but the boxes are empty! I don’t have enough cellar space to pile boxes so I have to put the bottles in a temp control environment!

The Unnamed Series

Christmas Cuvée Syrah 2017

Unnamed series Christmas Cuvée. Reynvaan vineyards. This is meaty with crushed berries, herbs, pepper, and a hint of saline. Really interesting Syrah. Would like to try again in a few years. — 10 months ago
