2018 de Négoce Syrah OG N.99 Walla Walla Valley

Agree with prior tasting note. An over-Oaked disaster. By far the worst wine I’ve purchased from De Negoce.

Thing is, I’ve loved Cougar Crest Reserve in the past. 🤔

    The fruit source is good but the use of oak is hamhanded and, IMO, results in a poor wine.

I really liked this,
and was pleasantly surprised that it was ready to go with just a short decant.

Hoped the Reserve bottling would use a little less oak then the standard cab; No such luck.

Not quite "Vile oak juice" as others have described but not far off.

Tough to get down.

    To each his own.
