2017 K Vintners "Rock Garden Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah (750ml)
We have 4 in stock.
81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot and 2% Malbec. 21 days’ skin contact. 18 months in new French oak. Warmest year since 2008. Dry. Harvest started on 1 September and finished 8 October. Released to Bordeaux négociants in September 2018. Bright deep crimson. Really quite restrained and haunting on the nose. In this particular line-up (the previous wine was 2011), this was the first wine to incorporate some of the indigenous-yeast ferment. Pretty complex nose but much more richness on the palate. Lots of tannin. Not unlike a bordeaux 2015. A tad thick. 18+/20 points. Drink 2022 – 2038. (JR) (7/2019)
