K syrah deal

Syrah, "The Deal" 2014

K Vintners

I smell coarse black sand, volcanic granules that mix with the sand and gravel that makes Sundance Vineyard. That is just the beginning. Full and delicious, green herbs, cooked meat and seashells layer into this complete beguiling earthbound Syrah.

Reviews

  • "95 points. Coming from the Wahluke slope and 100% Syrah fermented (all native) with no destemming and aged in 30% new 500-liter or larger barrels, the 2014 Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard has a killer bouquet of black pepper, currants, blueberries, graphite and dried herbs. Full-bodied, seamless, pure and with no hard edges, it is indeed a screaming "deal"!" (Wine Advocate)
  • "93 points. Shows expression and verve, with blackberry and stony mineral aromas and impressively structured roasted meat, plum and espresso flavors that finish with refined tannins. Drink now through 2024. 1,054 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
