Second time tasting this, but this time it blew us all away. Really great balance. There's a richness and weight here, but not enough to overpower or draw attention to itself. Subtle and layered, it's gorgeous and classic Syrah aromatically. Blackberry, white pepper, purple flowers... It's terrific. Everyone tasted blind though Northern Rhone or maybe a high quality California producer of Syrah. Washington surprised us! — 2 months ago
The 2014 Lagniappe is an outstanding bottling from Gramercy Cellars, this Syrah was sourced from the Forgotten Hills, Red Willow and Minick Vineyards. The wine underwent 66% whole cluster fermentation and was aged for 18 months in used puncheons prior to bottling. This shows wonderful aromatics of dried herbs, red cherry, red raspberry, rose petals, Parma ham and blood orange. There are ripe flavors of black cherry, Chinese black tea, mint, coffee grounds and hints of orange rind and anise. This dense wine needs a two hour decant for full expression and drinks even better on the second day. Lithe and light on its feet, this will cellar well for at least another ten years.

Tries to do 100% cab. Petit Verdot is the salt and pepper of Cabernet. This year it’s 10% Merlot. — a month ago
The 2017 Gramercy Cellars Rosé is a blend of 44% Cinsault, 31% Grenache and 25% Syrah, all sourced from the Olsen Vineyard. This pale colored Rose begins with a bouquet of white peach, red cherry candy and watermelon with a slightly smoky edge. The minerality is fantastic, as is the gorgeous mouthfeel. Balanced, showing good weight, the Rose unveils red cherry, cran-orange and rose water flavors. This is another outstanding wine made by the talented winemaking team of Greg Harrington and Brandon Moss. Drink 2019-2024 — a day ago
