jumbo red fruit, just restrained enough and complex enough on the finish with fleshy / meaty / bacon notes, won't mistake this for anything but new world Syrah

light citrus, star fruit / tropical fruit, very soft, not intense at all... wouldn't mind coming back to this outside the context of a palate-crushing day tasting

2010 Efeste Syrah Jolie Bouche Boushey Vineyard

Yakima Valley more

5/30/2015 - boogie96 Likes this wine: 90 points

Let this bottle breath for about 3 hours before pouring. A nose of deep strawberry, with some acid and a bit of the barrel coming through. Right off the bat upon tasting I was hit with raspberry jam, reminded of the kind they use on a fair scone. But before it could become to fruity, some spices (cayenne), and green veggies (bell pepper/asparagus) come through to even things out. Wonderful wine, I've yet to find an Efeste I didn't like.

Paired perfectly with fish tacos. Light and tangy, with refreshing grapefruit, floral aromas and flavors, that linger gently.

2011 Efeste Syrah Jolie Bouche Boushey Vineyard

Yakima Valley more

4/17/2015 - Meembo Likes this wine: 92 points

This is a beautiful Syrah for my palate. It's got a more medium-bodied style but still shows great dark fruit and depth. Mouth-coating. Not a huge finish, but nice.

Decanted 1 hour, consumed over 1 hour.
Fresh, clean dark fruit on the nose. Concentrated red/black fruit on the palate. Nice structure hints of future complexity. Integrated but aggressive/drying tannins. Medium finish.
Excellent with steak.
Best days ahead.

Very lightly straw colored. 12.8% ABV. Subtle nose of stone fruits, citrus and minerals. Fresh and tasty with vibrant acidity. Flavors of pear, lime and peach. Dry and tart with a long finish. Super example of Washington Riesling. Drink over the next 2-4 years.

Nose has developed towards mineral and herbs with less fruit than previously

On palate, soft, smooth, pepper and fruit integrated with juiciness coming out only after 10-15 minutes in glass
