Three Rivers Winery 2014 Syrah, Walla Walla Valley, $39

By on December 14, 2017

Holly Turner stayed in the Walla Walla Valley hills for this Syrah from Salmon-Safe Minnick Hills Vineyard, which gets a remarkable boost from Petit Verdot (7%) off Seven Hills. The nose offers dense aromas of blackberry, sweet blueberry and cocoa beans, which lead to delicious and dusty flavors of more purple fruit, backed by a lick of cherry candy, light tannins and a long and juicy finish of blueberry. Suggested pairings include pan-seared venison or bison tenderloin with roasted root vegetables served with Cumberland Sauce.
