Columbia Crest Syrah Columbia Valley Reserve 2006

Member Review by jtryka:

Now for the wine, a beautiful ruby color in the glass, just as you would expect from a nice Syrah. The nose is an interesting combination of ripe blackberry, tart cherry, smoke and some herb notes, perhaps it's a bit of tarragon that I'm picking up, The taste is classic Walla Walla Syrah, with flavors of tart cherry, blackberry, leather and anise up front, which then transitions to some notes of dark chocolate, green grass and earthy basalt notes midpalate. The finish is quite nice, with some well structured tannins that support a long, dry finish. This wine is probably right about at its prime drinking right now, so I'm glad I opened this one!

Reserve Syrah 2006 - Columbia Crest: Reserve Syrah 2006 - Rotwein von Columbia CrestNicht nur der ausgezeichnete Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon war sofort nach der Wahl vergriffen, auch der Columbia Crest Reserve Syrah 2004 ist ab Weingut längst auch nicht mehr erhältlich und anderswo bereits ausverkauft. Für Sie haben wir jedoch noch wenige Flaschen zurück behalten. In dichtem Kirschrot schimmert der Wein im Glas und entfaltet sein würzig-beeriges Bouquet mit Aromen von Blaubeeren und Pfeffer, in die sich ganz sanft leichte Viogniernoten von süßer Orangenschale, Birne und Rosenblättern einbringen. Am Gaumen zeigt er eine wunderschöne Blance von nahezu süßlicher Beerenfrucht und warmer Würze mit Anklängen an geröstete Kaffeebohnen, Bitterschokolade und feinen Noten von Lakritz, die das lange Finale begleiten.Weingut: Columbia CrestLand: USARegion: Washington StateRebsorte: 98% Syrah, 2% ViognierInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,0 g/lRestsüße: trockenEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (20 Monate) Lagerfähigkeit: 10 - 15 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > USA > Washington State
