K Vintners Syrah Columbia Valley the Deal 2010
Also from mostly sandy soils, the 2010 Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard is a medium-bodied, elegant and supple Syrah that offers gorgeously perfumed and complex aromas of spice, raspberry, bramble and hints of rendered bacon fat on the nose. Building in richness and with awesome persistence on the finish, it is hard to resist now; nevertheless, it should evolve gracefully and have upwards of a decade of ultimate longevity. Drink now-2020...93" WA 6/13 "In the top tier of producers in Washington State, wild man Charles Smith fashions singular, exotic wines that never lack for richness or texture. While his wines can push the limits in some vintages and be slightly controversial, there’s nothing controversial or over the top with these 2010s and 2011s and they have beautiful purity of fruit, clean, integrated acid profiles and solid underlying structure. In almost all cases, given the quality, they represent incredible values. While this was a slight marathon tasting, when the wines are this good, it’s always easy to keep your motivation. Focusing on low-yields in the vineyards, the winemaking here is straight-forward with almost all of the wines seeing some whole cluster fermentation, time on lees and aging primarily in neutral French oak.
