Columbia Crest Syrah Grand Estates Columbia Valley 2015

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The Wine Enthusiast Magazine #1 Best Buy of 2017 Some of the most exciting wines coming out of Washington state these days are the Syrahs. The micro-climate seems to be ideal to bring out the best expression and nuance in this warm climate, bold red varietal. What's so exciting about this wine is that it brings all of the robust, smoky character and style at a price that seems too good to be true. The grapes are sourced primarily from the prime Wahluke Slope district, where low yields bring concentrated flavors. The wine aged for 14 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 91 points and selected it as their #1 Best Buy of the year! They said "The aromas in this wine pop, with notes of dried herb, plum, vanilla and smoked meat. It brings a compelling sense of texture, coating the palate from end to end with exquisitely balanced fruit and savory flavors. It's a knockout at this price."
