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.

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
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
