Indian Creek Winery 2012 Syrah, Snake River Valley, $15
Best Buy! Part of the Stowe/McClure clan business in Kuna, Idaho, is in personalizing labels, but there’s already remarkable artwork on the bottle and inside these affordable bottles. Mike McClure’s work with one of the several Rhône varieties which shine in the Snake River Valley offers dark tones of toasted bread, smoky plum and bacon, backed by boysenberry acidity that makes for good length and balance. This wine earned a silver medal at the 2014 Idaho Wine Competition.
