Stevens Syrah Yakima Valley Black Tongue 2008
This year’s vintage comes from the same cast of characters as in the past, Dineen, Sheridan & Meek Vineyards. It is filled with earth, smoke, tar and licorice. Stylistically, it is a very dry, deep and compact Syrah. With layers of black fruits, cassis and dry tannins that help give it is name.
Hope you like massive structure (I do) because this wine has it! The wine has plenty of deep, rich, dark fruit but this wine is really about the tar, smoke, licorice and pepper. Those that love very fruity Syrahs should stay away, this is quite dry.
