Boushey Vineyards Syrah 2021

Dark purple in color with a wide purplish rim.

Nose of blue fruits with light wood, cherry candy, tobacco, violets, barnyard and chocolates.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and fat legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, blueberries, oak, spices, vegetables, peppercorn, tobacco, dark chocolates, iron/blood, black tea and bitter herbs.

Soft finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a tasty Syrah from Yakima Valley in Washington State. Soft and elegant with a nice mouthfeel. Feels like a light Northern Rhone red.

Still young, but already enjoyable, even by itself. Buttery and spicy. The nose is a little stinky as expected.

Not in your face kind Syrah. Good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours in the decanter.

This Single Vineyard is a good quality wine that will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

Nice to see a lower ABV from Washington State.

100% Syrah grapes were fermented with native yeast. A small production of only 14 barrels made.

13.6% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Red Mountain Mourvedre 2021

Pretty color of ruby with a wide reddish rim.

Light nose of red fruits with light wood and chocolate notes.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with red currants, cherries, light oak, spices, licorice, earth, herbs, chocolates, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and raspberries.

This is a young Mourvedre from Washington State. Showing mild complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Feels like a Cotes du Rhône red, right out of the bottle. After 90 minutes of airtime it feels more like an old world Pinot Noir. Interesting stuff.

Would be nice to revisit it in a couple of years and see how it evolves.

Soft, spicy and elegant. Easy drinking and good by itself or with food.

100% Mourvedre grapes were handpicked, 50% whole Cluster. A small production of only 14 barrels. Unfined.

14% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Scintillation Brut Underwood Mt Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2016

White flowers, brioche, beer bottle cap, dried thyme. Snapping acidity, frothy mousse, compact racy bubbles, crisp floral-citrus zest finish. Base wine is emphasized and present, not always the case in new world sparklers. — 5 years ago
