I do enjoy a good Syrah from good ol' Washington. Soft nose for a Syrah, typical notes of gamey grilled meat, herbs, and nutmeg spices. Less oaky than previous vintages which I liked, exhibiting ripe blueberries, cocoa, dried herbs, and a smooth lacey tannin to the finish. Good value in the $20 department, but I think I'd enjoy a Croze-Hermitage for the same money a little more. Goes well with a good burger though!

For a 20$ syrah this is excellent. It has everything from blue fruit to smoked game. Not bad at all!

It's ok. A lot of fruit, a little game, a good bit of pepper...not crazy complex and ready to drink. Trying btl 2, oh the American oak is crazy

Very dry Syrah a bit of alcohol on the nose. Dark caramelized cherries on the palate. Overall an easy drinking wine not super complex.

Delicious, give it an hour or so to breathe. Even good a day after opening.

This definitely needed some air. Not my favorite Syrah, but not a bad one either.
