Reynvaan Family Vineyards Syrah Walla Walla Valley In the Rocks 2010

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Firm in texture, with tannins not obtrusive but tightly packed with the dark berry and licorice flavors. Hints at black olive and tar as the finish lingers expressively. Drink now through 2019.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Good medium red.  Sexy aromas of earth, smoked meat and brown spices, with a hint of white peach.  Spicier and more expressive than The Unnamed, showing gamey, savory and floral qualities but also a higher pitch to the middle palate that suggests it will unfold dramatically with time in bottle.  Youthfully tight today but long on the aftertaste.  Lots of potential here.  Incidentally, I rated the 2008 In the Rocks 91 points a year ago but this summer it was a solid 93; in fact, I found myself raising my scores by a point or two for all of the 2008 Reynvaan reds.

The 2008 In The Rocks with 6% Viognier and 2% Marsanne, gives up alluring notes of roasted meat, bacon, pepper, lavender, and blueberry. Beautifully proportioned, precise and lengthy, this pleasure-bent offering will evolve for 2ndash;3 years and drink well through 2023. All of the Syrahs spent 18 months in barrel with approximately 15% (or less) new oak.

Medium red-ruby. Explosive aromas of bacon fat, mocha, truffle and woodsmoke, plus a whiff of flowers and apricot from the viognier: very northern Rhone! Then lush, sweet and savory but not at all heavy, with its seamless texture perked up by spices and pepper. Finishes shapely, firm and long. Therersquo;s nothing forced about this syrah, which offers an attractive combination of expressive fruit and saline tones. Actually, I see that my note quite closely resembles the one for the 2007, which I tasted on a couple of earlier occasions.
