Powerline Estate Syrah 2014

9.4

My contribution for the evening. This was powerful after 2.5hrs in the decanter and EPITOMIZED WA state Syrah. A mix of Cayuse funk on the nose with more ripe producers on the palate. No fox fur type notes, but very stemmy (100% whole cluster) crusted by black peppercorn and black olive tapenade. Blood/iron rich at the front and mid palate before it turns more blue and black fruit dominant with a touch of sweetness. More savory than fruity with smoked brisket and jerky but a nice balance of baked fruit. Drinking fantastic right now. Runner up for Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year in 2017. — 13 days ago

Upon the first few sips it had depth and a nice spice edge but it rapidly became flat. Lacked vibrancy. Was able to Stan up to it complement our pork bbq ribs. — 14 hours ago

Particularly smooth for a Syrah, needs a fair amount of time in the decanter to appreciate the nuances of the blend. — 5 days ago

Frederick Estate Grown Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

A very sultry-styled wine. The nose has ripe cherry and red berries, along with a smoky, low toned rushed stone minerality. Intense and round attack, with lots of ripe (but not overripe) fruit, vanilla, and smoke. Fairly long finish with a hint of bitterness at the very end. — 12 days ago

😭 when you open the last bottle and remember how good it is. Found this little gem while I was in Walla Walla cycling. Smooth. Classic cab. Not over done. Nice finish. Wish I had more. Great quality for price value. — 10 days ago

En Cerise Vineyard Syrah 2007

Rally nice tonight. Bacon fat, leather and black berries. This has a lot of the same characteristics as a classic northern Rhône. Pairing extremely well with the lamb. — 23 days ago
