Lone Birch 2014 Syrah, Yakima Valley, $13

By on July 9, 2017

Best Buy! The flagship Airfield Estates brand for the Miller family already represents value for consumers, and all of the releases under their young Lone Birch label also fit within this Best Buy! price range. The latest bottling of Syrah, which spent a year in oak, represents a cool-climate approach with complex aromas of blueberry, elderberry and boysenberry, with touches of vanilla, lilac, graphite and gun metal. The fruit notes come through on the palate, backed by pink peppercorns, chalky tannins and rewarding acidity.
