Star of the lineup was the in the rocks Syrah. Cool climate and a dead ringer Clape Cornas. This wine was hauntingly good. It helped that Mike Reynvaan served it to me πŸ˜„

Battle of the Walla Walla Valley Syrahs: 2011 No Girls and 2013 Reynvaan β€œThe Contender.” The Reynvaan is a bit lighter both in color and body with a nose of mocha espresso. The No Girls has that olive tapenade thing going which never fails to please. Both great expressions of the Valley.

Dirty, stank and dank. Like having sex on a dumpster in August behind a Chinese restaurant in an alley inAugust. So worth it!

Raspberry, with olive, mushroom and bacon fat. A long, smoky finish. Lush, creamy and supple. A WS Top 100.

Loads of bacon fat and blackberry. Black tea and wet earth with a tinge of chocolate and raspberry syrup. The finish is long with supple tannins and notes of graphite and smoke. Still young. This is a 10-15 year wine.

Ever since I first tasted the 98 point Stonessence from this producer at the WS show, I have been on a quest for their wines. Finally I have found them after 5 months.

The nose on this wine is signature of this producer. Huge floral briary cranberry and raspberry as if it was transformed into a perfume by Dolce & Gabbana. Smelling the glass is beyond a requirement as you will enjoy the aromatics more than the wine. Tremendously delicate on the palate with juicy berries, lush velvet texture, hints of sugar cookies and lavender. As Beautiful and elusive as an alluring woman who makes deep eye contact before disappearing into a sea of strangers.
