L' Aste Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2017

Nose is kind of uncharacteristically reticent for a Walla Walla Syrah. Gives up a bit of dark red fruit and some scorchy notes. Bit of that campfire ember smokiness lots of Syrahs from here show, but you have to search for it. Very savory and a little scorchy in the mouth, a tad lacking in fruit. I will save some for tomorrow night to see if air helps.

NIGHT 2: Better. More plummy berry fruit on the nose. Softer and fruitier in the mouth. Upping score from 8.7 to 8.9, with the caveat that this needs air to show its stuff.

Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2016

Definitely not a California Syrah, light in color unlike my favorite Albans but such a great nose & lingering taste. SJR is the way to go
Jeb 97, I can’t disagree🤷🏼‍♂️
His thoughts as follows

Their 2016 Syrah SJR Vineyard is a beautiful, classic wine from this estate as well as the finest wine I’ve tasted from them. A blend of 91.6% Syrah and 8.4 Viognier that spent 14 months in 60% new French oak,

Leonetti Cellar

Reserve Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Tried to create a lasting impression on my daughter before leaving us again, as she travels the world, with this Leonetti Reserve. Maybe it was just a blatant attempt of bribery to get her to stay.... The wine slowly released most of its dark deep secrets after decanting/in glas for nearly 2 hours. Blueberry, currant and dry fig carried by cigar box and mulberry spice. We were playing the board game Azul … and suddenly the wine was gone. Must have been one of those bottles again that didn’t have quite 750 ml. — 7 days ago

Roses, dark cherries, blueberries, hints of iron on the nose. Tight and concentrated. Needs time in the decanter.

8 Red Blend

Syrah shines in this bottling: deep purple color, meaty funky aromatics, and a rich/lush mouthfeel with again meaty dark fruits on palate. Lovely long finish. Tannins are fine and sweet. Overall, quite good! — 7 days ago

Armada Vineyard 2014

Nez très Syrah, olives, violettes, poivre, un peu fumé, bouche puissante mais avec une texture riche et soyeuse mais sans excès, excellent. 93-94

Very typical Syrah, pepper, violets, olives, a touch of smoke, powerful but with no excess, rich and savory, nice length, gorgeous.
