October 24, 2011 - So very clean, cool, pure, and balanced, The essence of WA Syrah, and perfectly made. I particularly like how "cool" tasting this is, with no sense of overripeness or sweetness on the front edge. Very tasty, excellent with wild game. Drank at Purple Kirkland.

August 10, 2011 - consistent with prior notes...my last bottle. As an introduction to Gramercy, you could hardly do better.
August 9, 2011 - Nearly black core with purple tinted rim. The nose is a blast of black pepper along with some floral perfumed aromatics. Full bodied with dark fruits and savory components. Blackberry and olive brine which is a strange combo for layers of flavor, but it works beautifully. Strong acidic structure keeps the fruit bright rather than brooding. Tannins are silky soft. Nice length.
As always, Gramercy delivers a wine which is firmly new world in style, but sensible and balanced. No heat or flab, just pure fruit.

(Gramercy Cellars ‘Lagniappe’ Syrah Columbia Valley) An intoxicating, drop dead gorgeous nose with game, floral notes, and orange peel. The palate is breathtaking and intricately layered with an incredible purity of fruit paired with a richly textured mouthfeel. A zing of acidity runs through the wine. 200 cases produced. Syrah co-fermented with viognier. 13.9% alcohol. 200 cases produced.
