Columbia Valley Syrah 2013

David T
9.3

The nose is brooding as the glass even approaches. Ruby, ripe; dark currants/cassis, blackberries, an array of purple fruits, blueberries, creamy raspberries, baked, dark cherries and plum. Mid intensity grilled meats, smoke, cracked pepper, blue/purple fruit cola, black licorice, nice, soft, dark spice, crushed rocks, moist clay, vanilla, understated dry herbs, blue, purple flowers and gently layered lavender.

The body is full, thick, lush and ruby. The mouthfeel is gorgeous/sexy. It just starting to drink softer, showing good integration with another 10 plus years of good drinking ahead. This style, structure, tension, length & balance is why I love well made Syrahs from Walla Walla. Ruby, ripe; dark currants/cassis, blackberries, an array of purple fruits, blueberries, creamy raspberries, baked, dark cherries and plum. Mid intensity grilled meats, smoke, cracked pepper, blue/purple fruit cola, black licorice, caramel, mocha powder, milk chocolate, nice, soft, dark spice that brings heat to the palate, notes of cinnamon, crushed rocks, moist clay, vanilla, understated dry herbs, dark, rich, turned earth, even show a touch graphite, used tobacco with ash, blue, purple flowers and gently layered lavender. The acidity is round and nicely done. The lush, rich, ripe, well balanced, finish glides beautifully & juicy over the palate while it persists minutes.

Still have a 13 John Lewis bottle which rated high, but my first bottle was kind of thin & underwhelming

@Paul T- Huntington Beach This was certainly not thin. 95-96 points with 5 more years in bottle.

Thats why I’m holding my other bottle, hopefully it turns out better than the previous one

Reserve Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The 2015 'Reserve' Cabernet Sauvignon from Gramercy Cellars is a stunning wine that can benefit from a two plus hour decant at this point in its development. It shows an inky color, unveiling layered black fruits, smoky and earthy tones and Asian spices on the nose. The mouthfeel is sumptuous, as this silky wine glides through the mid-palate. Cigar ash, blackberry compote, black tea, Asian spice and mocha flavors all marvelously combine in the glass. This is a truly fantastic wine which should continue to cellar well for decades but it is highly gratifying in the glass right now. Drink 2019-2035- 95 — 3 months ago

Particularly smooth for a Syrah, needs a fair amount of time in the decanter to appreciate the nuances of the blend. — a month ago

Lagniappe Columbia Valley Syrah 2012

Youthful 6+ year-old Syrah. Still dark and opaque, this wine sings with bright blue fruits and and excellent finish, supported by a stout structure of fine tannins and nice acidity. Bravo. — 2 months ago

Olsen Vineyard Rosé Blend 2018

Sourced from the esteemed ‘Olsen Vineyard’ in the Yakima Valley, this wine is a compelling blend of 47% Cinsault with 27% Grenache and 26% Syrah. Pretty red rose and watermelon with orange blossom and shades of white pepper aromatics all build in the glass. The palate unveils a silky texture and a rich, gratifying mouthfeel. Once in the mouth, bright guava, strawberry and lighter earthy and wet stone undertones round out this downright delicious Rose. While beautiful in its youth, this impressive effort will cellar well over the next five plus years. Drink 2019-2024- 92 — 2 months ago

I wish the doctors I work with had 1/2 of your skill set when it comes to medical reports. Perhaps more wine would help.

@Bill Bender That’s a super nice compliment. Maybe those docs just need better wine? 🍷
