Sweet, soft, and tart, with flavors of anise, boysenberry syrup (but not in a sweet way), flowers (but in a good way). These are really enjoyable wines, even if I have trouble with the list prices. I'll just keep picking them up in the secondary markets when I find them.
Funky, animal nose in a big way--so odd, in that this quality was not present or even hinted at on the bottles we had one and two years ago. I love that quality but my guests did not care for it at all. This was bigger bodied and deeper colored than previous bottles as well. Drinks well now, but no rush.
Nose is floral with blackberry, smoke, meat, hints of lavender and a trace of caramel. Palate has meat, smoke, dried fruits, pepper, spice, plum, and blackberry. Nicely balanced, Long finish, medium complexity, but a slight "harsh" discordant note at the end. Can probably use a couple more years to fully integrate.

(Reynvaan Family Vineyards The Unnamed Syrah In the Rocks Vineyard Walla Walla Valley) A hugely aromatic, gamey, briny wine full of earth, iodine, umami, floral notes, and meat. Great depth and intensity of flavors with a textured feel. Has a backbone of tannins to hold it all together. Syrah co-fermented with Viognier.
