Bionic Frog Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2008

To celebrate 5,500 reviews on Vivino, here is a beautiful wine from Washington State.

Dark ruby in color with a short brick rim.

Sweet nose of blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with sweet cherries, plums, blueberries, oak, light vanilla, spices, espresso, cola, light vegetables, leather, earth, tobacco, vinaigrette, peppercorn, pencil lead, light bell pepper and dark chocolates.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a great Syrah from Washington State. Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Elegant, yet rich. Just Beautiful.

This 12 year old is drinking very nicely now and will continue to age nicely in the next decade.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show some tannins.

Wine Enthusiasts 100 points. Robert Parker 97 points.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Tasty and delicious.

14.4% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2009

Holding up extremely well for a 2009. Color was dark, inky from core to rim. The expressive nose was filled with lavender, licorice and black pepper along with ripe black and blue fruit. The palate was clean and bright with more ripe fruit on the front end; the mid palate was expansive with rich but soft tannins, cocoa, black tea, and herbal notes. The finish was surprisingly long and Smokey. I credit balanced acidity for its long life! — 6 days ago

From the vineyard in the rocks and blended with 8% Grenache Blanc, this is a more nuanced wine than I’m accustomed to from Reynvaan! Gave it a nice decant and, while the funk was present, it blew off quickly. The GB was perceptible in the lighter color and medium body of the wine. — 11 days ago

Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Super dry, no residual fruit, yet an intriguing evolution of flavors that gave it body and structure and ended in a nearly 5 minute lingering finish. Great sipping wine. Sipped it for hours due to this intense lingering finish. — 18 days ago

Pour this producer blind and pretty much everyone calls quality Napa Cabernet.

Sharilee Petit Verdot 2016

Very nice wine! That almost upsets me, because I quit my membership w this winery today, which is crazy because I have loved all their offerings! Maybe need to rethink that decision. Wine is dark maroon in the glass. Smell is ever so pleasant, with forest smoked berries trekking up the nose. A sip says ahhh, smooth, hot, gentle, dark smoked fruity warmth with a finish that rates particularly high. Yum. I think I need to UNcancel my membership tomorrow. — 5 days ago
