Burnt Bridge Cellars 2013 Les Collines Vineyard Syrah, Walla Walla Valley, $34
These Vancouver, Wash., vintners produce single-vineyard Syrah from Coyote Canyon in the Horse Heaven Hills and Les Collines in the Walla Walla Valley, and both are marvelous examples. (Burnt Bridge also recently released a stellar Cab from Les Collines.) The nose is akin to a slice of blackberry pie with touches of vanilla bean, cinnamon and slate. Inside, it presents flavors of ripe boysenberry and Rainier cherry within a medium structure that’s not syrupy, but instead silky with fine-grained tannins. A touch of vanilla extract makes for nice length.
