“From a great site in the Rocks region of Walla Walla, the 2018 Syrah River Rock Vineyard checks in as 97% Syrah and 3% Viognier that was all destemmed and will see 18 months in 35% new, larger format French oak. This deep purple-hued barrel sample is already complex and has lots of floral, olive, and peppery, meaty notes to go with a medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured style on the palate. It certainly has plenty of Rocks character yet also beautiful purity of fruit, ripe tannins, and a great finish. There are only 200 cases made.”94-96 points Jeb Dunnuck
