Grape Type: Syrah/Shiraz
Region: Walla Walla Valley
92 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2010
($45; 98% Les Collines fruit) Bright full ruby. Knockout northern Rhone aromas of blackberry, licorice and smoked meat; I would have put this somewhere between Cornas and Hermitage. Juicy, reticent and complex, with youthfully closed flavors of dark berries and spices. This was vinified with 80% whole clusters, saw no new oak, and was only racked for the bottling, which took place a week before my July visit to Washington. On the finish, this is more juicy Cornas than dense, powerful Hermitage.
