There’s no question as to what’s in this bottle – 100% Syrah.
I’ve been off Syrah for a few months, so I was happy that this bottle turned me around. I’m grooving on Washington Syrah again. You’ll be thrilled by this wine immediately after opening it. The nose is instantly interesting, qualities that only improve over the next couple of hours.
I found this to be a very enjoyable Washington Syrah. I loved the inky color and the rich, almost oily mouth feel. There’s tobacco, tarragon and dark fruit – love it. When my glass was empty, I was left pleased and purpled (just don’t wear white or sit next to any lightly colored furniture – you’ve been warned).
I don’t know why, but I’m always extra partial to odd year vintages. This 2007 Syrah gets big points in my book. Found this bottle locally for less than $20. Magnificent Wine Company! Syrah Columbia Valley 2007 is another wonderful example of a Washington Syrah. Recommended.
