K Vintners Rock Garden Syrah 2016
|Region||United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley|
The 2016 Syrah Rock Garden walks a fine line between red and black fruit, with dusty red plum, inky blackberry reduction and pulverized peppercorns along with hung meats and dusty sweet tobacco aromas wafting out of the glass. Full-bodied in the mouth, the wine shows a rigidity, as the fruit turns slightly tart, delivering a freshness that is rich and zippy. Displaying flavors of tart black cherries on the fresh, zippy and long finish, the wine echos on the aftertaste with a rocky minerally, tart cherries and black pepper. It's a lovely wine; approximately 600 cases produced.
