Eternal Wines 2016 Eternal Echo Syrah, Columbia Valley, $59

By on January 26, 2022

The single-vineyard project of erstwhile Empire State sommelier Brad Binko zeroed in on Gamache Vineyard for an Oct. 3 pick during a vintage that wasn’t an easy one for Syrah to attain ripeness in some corners of the Northwest. And yet, there’s profound intensity and depth to the dark blue fruit profile. Velvety fine-grained tannins don’t distract from the subtle minerality, and the late injection of boysenberry extends the lengthy finish. Award: Savor NW (gold).
