H/H Estates 2012 Coyote Canyon Vineyard Buck Reserve Syrah, Horse Heaven Hills, $38

Rancher-turned-vintner Mike Andrews brands his reserve Syrah with the name of prized bull Buck whose hard work sired the herd that roamed this land in the Horse Heaven Hills. This Syrah from a classic vintage in Washington offers a theme of dried blueberry and black currant with of leather and meat. Fine-grained tannins make this an easy drink capped by a pinch of juniper berry.
