Washington Hills Syrah 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very tight on the nose, but what is there shows sweet boysenberry and candied violet notes. Wow, this is fresh and lively in the mouth with an initial burst of blue fruit followed by some lovely dried meat and black raspberry flavors. Very pure, if perhaps a touch sweet, the tannins here are fleshy fruit tannins balanced by juicy if not pronounced acidity all tied together in a lovely hit of pomegranate fruit on the back end and through the modest finish. A little too young, give it three to six months to settle down and drink it over the following year or two for what it is, a lusty little bistro styled wine that is delicious and very easy to drink! 85pts

Gamey nose with lots of black pepper, and rich jammy black fruit. The body is moderate-to-heavy with the jamminess really coming out more in the body, which is kind of a punch in the face. Some hints of menthol come out in the mid-palate and finish.

Lots of blueberries and blackberries. Very calm, slightly sweet but very delicious. I like this a lot!

Heat on the nose. A very light body and not oaky at all! Very thin!
