Introduction

Wonderful private tasting with Jermey Eubanks at Va Piano in Walla Walla. It was interesting to try the barrel samples from 2018. I highly recommend tasting their Syrah's as they are outstanding. These wines need time in the cellar. My brother said the SB needs some air and is much better.

Unbelievable wine. The best wine I tasted on my Washington State trip. For the money not many better Syrah wines in the world for under $50. Roasted meats, white pepper, gravel, stone, blueberries and earth. Medium to long finish. Balanced and amzing complexity. Multilayered finish. Drink now to 2028.
