  • 2014 K Vintners Syrah Rock Garden - USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Walla Walla Valley (2/13/2019)
    Day 1: Black olives, charred meats, white pepper, tar and red currants. Super balanced wine and good acidity. Northern Rhone like. Very elegant overall and not an over extracted, ripe wine. This is a benchmark K Syrah. 93 + points
    Day 2: Picks up some weight. Black olives, white pepper, truffles, tar and darker fruits. A bit more concentrated than day 1. Nice overall finish and good acidity. This is a balanced effort with all the characteristics I enjoy from the Syrah grape. Outstanding. 94 points
    Day 3: Completely different experience with green olives, mint, jalapeno peppers, pepper and sour cherries. Not nearly as good as day 2 and 1. Would not be thrilled if this was day 1 experience. 88 points
    Recommendation: Hard one here. Love day 1 and 2 so I say pop and pour consume young but I also could see 3 to 4 years this being really good. (94 pts.)
