Introduction

This year's edition was not as good as last year's. There are a lot of $100 plus wines that don't deliver.

I am going to add a 3 day note of a wine I got for $50.00. No disrespect to all the wines poured including mine but this wine is better than them all.
2010 Reynvaan Family Vineyards Syrah The Unnamed - USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Walla Walla Valley (4/2/2023)
Day 2: Day 1 not as good. Day 2 so much better. Black olives & pepper, spices, dark fruits, dust, minerals, graphite, floral and stone. No offense to all the wines sampled on Friday night including mine but this is much better than them and a fraction of the price. 94 points
Day 3: Wow does this wine have some life left. We are always talking about the Northern Rhone wines cellar for 20 plus but this wine I would argue is an infant. Black olives, stone, black pepper, dust, earth, exotic spices, dark fruits and graphite. Super concentrated wine and long finish. Everything is there for another 10 plus years! 95 points
Recommendation: I will argue no one makes a better Syrah on the planet for the money than Reynvaan/Result of a Crush. (95 points)

Flight 1 (12 Notes)

Closing

My wine of the night were the 3 Italian wines. For someone reason someone brought a $30 Barolo to a $100 tasting but that is why I like to know what was coming to the event first.
