What's that smell?! Syrah! Ribbons of mineral snake through a palate of crushed purple fruit, sandalwood and spice. Delicious Washington Syrah. - Charles Smith

Reviews

  • "93 points. A superb vintage for this cuvee, the 2010 Syrah Pheasant Vineyard is 100% Syrah that comes from sandy loam soils and vines planted in 2000. Aged in 30% new French oak, it offers up peppery, Christmas spice-like aromas that give way to more game, rosemary and smoked fruit qualities with air. This full-bodied, gorgeously textured Syrah has no hard edge, excellent concentration and a light, elegant mouthfeel that carries through the lengthy finish. An absolute superb value, this beauty will evolve for 2-4 years and drink well for 10-12 years. Drink now-2022." (Wine Advocate)
  • "93 points. Fresh & vibrant, open-textured & appealing, with a distinctive meaty, mineral cast to the dark berry flavors, persisting impressively as the finish dances. Drink now through 2020." (Wine Spectator)
