Bottle Notes, Syrah

2010 Reynvaan Family Vineyards Syrah The Unnamed – Bottle Notes

Reynvaan Family Vineyards is a small family owned winery started by Mike and Gale Reynvaan in May of 2004 in Walla Walla, Washington. They initially purchased a 37 acre parcel of land on Cottonwood Road at the base of the Blue Mountains. Their son Matt is the winemaker and Christophe Baron of Cayuse has served as a consultant. Reynvaan Family Vineyards is dedicated to creating fine wines exclusively from the terroir of Walla Walla Valley.

The Unnamed Syrah is sourced from the In the Rocks Vineyard in Milton-Freewater.

Crimson in color. 14.7% ABV. Savory nose of red fruits, olive brine, smoked meats and minerals. Medium body with exquisite acidity. Rich and silky. Cherries, plums, soy sauce and pepper on the palate. The finish is exceptionally long and supple. Stunning Syrah epitomizing everything I adore about the Rocks District. Showing beautifully at 10 years of age. Best over the next 1-3 years.

My rating: 95 points.

The Reynvaan mailing list is not quite full. Well connected buyers can also find the wines at retail. One of the most exciting wineries in Washington. Proceed accordingly.
