Had this along with other Washingtons at a local tasting. This was a standard Syrah good peppery spices to it. Although well made, it did not really standout. Perhaps there was too many Cabs in this tasting. For more, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/05/washingtons.html
The 2010 Syrah Milbrandt Vineyard was fermented with 50% whole cluster and aged for 12 months in around 25% new French oak. Coming from the Northridge and Sundance Vineyards, it offers a pretty, perfumed bouquet of black cherry, raspberry, underbrush, flowers and hints of pepper to go with a medium to full-bodied, Up-front and elegant palate. Lively, delicious and easy drinking, it should be enjoyed over the coming 5-7 years. Drink now-2018...91" 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.
