Columbia Crest 2011 Syrah, Grand Estates, Columbia Valley
Some of the most exciting wines coming out of Washington state these days are the Syrahs. The micro-climate seems to be ideal to bring out the best expression and nuance in this warm climate, bold red varietal. What's so exciting about this wine is that it brings all of the robust, smoky character and style at a price that's seems too good to be true. The grapes are sources primarily from the prime Wahluke Slope district, where low yields bring concentrated flavors. The wine aged for 14 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels. Wine Enthusiast Magazine coined it a Best Buy and the Wine Spectator said "A polished, expressive and inviting red, with black olive-accented dark berry and black tea flavors. The finish lingers pleasantly. Drink now."

    Comments about Columbia Crest 2011 Syrah, Grand Estates, Columbia Valley:

    This has serious concentration, balance and intensity especially for a wine at this price point. Lush dark fruit, spice with floral and vanilla notes. It overdelivers on quality and overall drinkability. Something to stock up on for the summer as it will make a wonderful pairing with most things coming off the grill.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game
