Love That Red Winery 2014 Deadheat Syrah, Columbia Valley, $32

By on October 21, 2016

love-that-red-winery-deadheat-syrah-2014-bottleWoodinville vintner Terry Wells sources from Clifton Hill on the Wahluke Slope and Patina Vineyard, a tiny 20-year-old site in the Walla Walla Valley, for this juicy, 100% Syrah tribute to the sport of kings. Bright purple fruit tones of Bing cherry and blueberry include boysenberry, cured meat and some dusty minerality. Down the stretch, it’s big yet soft as black currant and Marionberry flavors are met by fine-grained black tea tannins and black licorice that draw out the finish.

Rating: Outstanding!
