Finn Hill Winery 2014 Corfu Crossing Vineyard L’Abîme Syrah, Columbia Valley $30

By on February 17, 2019

Rob Entrekin, Wine Press Northwest’s 2016 Washington Winery to Watch, spotlights the Lawrence family’s underrated Corfu Crossing Vineyard in the lofty Frenchman Hills near Royal City. It offers a nosefull of blackberry and Bing cherry with mocha, sassafras and eucalyptus. Inside, there’s richness reminiscent of cherry juice and blackberry jam as sandy Bing cherry skin tannins making for a long penetrating finish capped by fennel. Great complexity within an age-worthy structure are in store from the bottling of these three barrels at Woodinville’s Artisan Hill district, which earned best of class at last year’s Savor NW Wine Awards.
