I forgot what a beautiful magenta color this wine is! Looked great glistening down the decanter! It hasn’t been a full year (or two), but his wine has progressed nicely from the first/last time I had it. The nose had more dark fruit and spice with a touch of oak. The palate it still a touch hot at times and still has a strong helping of tannins, but the deep, juicy black and blue fruit is starting to show more. Paired with marinated hanger steak salad. Much more enjoyable this time around.

(Kevin White Winery En Hommage' Syrah Olsen Estates Vineyard Yakima Valley) An aromatically complex wine with violets, blueberry, boysenberry, white pepper, crushed gravel, and tar with a light meaty streak after the wine opens up. The palate is soft and subtle, on the lighter side of medium bodied with a velvety feel with pure red and blue fruit flavors that draw out and lingers on a cranberry filled finish. An intriguing and thoroughly delicious bottle of wine that straddles the Old World and the New. Give six months. 100% Syrah. Olsen Vineyard. Aged 15 months in neutral French oak. 14.9% alcohol. 100 cases produced.
