This wine is a true pan-Columbia Valley Syrah, with fruit coming from far-flung, top sites that include Dineen, Olsen, Discovery, StoneTree, Pepper Bridge, Stoney Vine and Boushey. The aromas draw you into the glass, with the notes of mountain blueberry, pepper, herb, raspberry, earth, smoked meat, flower and tangerine peel that show precision and detail. Fresh, focused fruit flavors follow, with the tannins giving a light squeeze. Tasty stuff with impeccable balance and great length on the smoked meat-filled finish. One would be hard-pressed to find a more impressive Syrah from the state at this price. Give it some additional time in the bottle or a short decant to see it at its best. Sean P. Sullivan

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
