Northwest Cellars 2016 Verhey Vineyard Syrah, Yakima Valley, $32

by | Mar 27, 2022 | Latest wine reviews, Outstanding, Washington | 0 comments

The Verhey family has helped Northwest Cellars and other earn acclaim for the Malbec grown on the edge of the Yakima Valley appellation, and Robert Delf turns these two barrels of Verhey Vineyard Syrah into something special. It’s dark, earthy, toasty and loaded with plum, blueberry and elderberry. There’s delicious penetration to the dark blue fruit that picks up a lick of cherry Starburst towards the finish of smoky plum, pepper and leather. Enjoy with this recipe for Sausage Dirty Rice, courtesy of sommelier Marlene Rossman, a James Beard Award-winning talk show host.
