Two Vintners Colombia Valley Syrah 2015
Morgan Lees første succes som vinmager var dette blend af Syrah fra otte forskellige marker, som nu er på banen i ny årgang. Vildgæret og med 30% hele klaser er det en håndlavet vin med tæt, mørk frugt, pomeransskal, rosmarin og pancetta. Lag på lag af blødt fløjl. Smukt.
91 points Wine SpectatorPolished and sleekly structured, with expressive huckleberry, sassafras and licorice flavors that take on depth toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2024. 700 cases made
91 points Wine EnthusiastThis is a pan-Washington Syrah, with fruit coming from Olsen, Pepper Bridge, Discovery, Dineen, Stone Tree, Boushey and Stoney Vine vineyards. It's a bit closed up on first pour, with notes of spice, dried herb, dark fruit, orange peel and whiffs of smoked meat. The palate is seamless in feel, gliding along with fruit and savory flavors that persist on the lengthy finish. It brings a very pleasing understated quality—a rare find at this price point.
90 points Robert ParkerWith its aromas and flavors of black fruits, grilled meats and cracked pepper, the medium-bodied and keenly priced 2015 Syrah certainly offers up some character for its modest tariff. Drink this chewy, somewhat rustic wine over the next handful of years.
90 points Vinous(there's "probably" 1% co-fermented Roussanne in this, according to assistant winemaker Graham Whye; this is the winery's largest bottling, at 700 cases): Bright ruby-red. Aromas of blueberry, licorice, fresh peach and plum. Offers a fine-grained texture and a penetrating floral/herbal quality to its intense dark berry and spice flavors. No shortage of palate presence here; in fact, this wine hints at a chocolatey generosity and offers a fine-grained texture for its gentle price. (14.9% alcohol)
