2010 RĂ´tie Cellars Northern Blend Washington Syrah Blend, Syrah

A darkish purple in color. This 95% Syrah co-fermented with Viognier has aromas of smoke, blackberry, blueberry, black pepper with a floral overtones. Flavors of smoked meat, dark fruits, pepper and crushed rock. Well balanced with pronounced tannins and a zippy liveliness. I probably should have given this another year or two before opening, but it was delicious.

Dark crimson in color. Black currant and blackberry notes in the nose. Flavors of black currant and plum mixed with mocha and oak. Mouth coating with fine tannins. Really nice.

So I am a bad CT tasting note writer, in style and quantity. If a wine is 70-88 I don't bother. Kind of like internet reviews, 'it sucks !', 'its awesome (sic)', passionately enthused or passionately miffed. I digress, ahem. This wine may not be ready for drinking, but I can certainly say it is one of the few wines I have had SECONDS out of the bottle and been wicked good. The wine is balanced so harmoniously, it is almost uncanny. The depth is certainly there, but not deep enough to be a 96-98 wine, I mean you have to spend at least $100 to score that high right ? The QPR on this wine is huge. Yes like the others said, plum, vanilla, caramel, 65% Dark chocolate. Not 64 or 66, not 75, 65, exactly. I only have 3 left, and am sad for it. If you take this wine to any wine event it would be at the top or near top every time. Thank you Dunham and Full Pull, together you almost make forget all the Garagiste sh*t I have to stomach.
