The new 2019 K Vintners Motor City Kitty (MCK) has been flying ever since its huge 98-point review. After tasting, we predicted it was headed for a big score and we don't mind saying we were right. Intensity, character, balance—we can have them all for under $40. Dollar for dollar the best Washington Syrah? We think so.
$37.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($41.95 regular)
98 points James Suckling: "Layered aromas of plums, black cherries, leather, bark and iron. Full-bodied with a lot of nuance. Firm, gripping tannins. Dried roses and crushed blackberries mix with dark, mineral complexity, leaving a buzz on the palate. A clear note of cocoa powder comes through. Concentrated and dynamic. Superb."
Us: This might seem like an obvious statement but the '19 MCK is really good. Really.Really. I had a series of expletive-filled wows when I first tasted it which continued with each successive taste over several days. I found it utterly brilliant right when I opened it and see no reason not to start drinking bottles now.
