97 points James Suckling: "Such a pretty nose of cooking spice, red and black cherries and dried garden herbs. Full-bodied with excellent depth and nuance. Silky tannins. Whole black pepper and spiced cherry make the palate hum. There is a deft hand at work here. There is so much exciting energy to the ripe, balanced fruit. This is showing well now, but can age easily for the next 10-15 years. Drink or hold."
For several vintages, this has demonstrated that it's more than just a name. It's a total beauty, beginning in the aromatics and carrying through the rich and supple finish. -Marcus
2018 vintage notes
97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Syrah The Beautiful Powerline Vineyard comes from a vineyard outside of Walla Walla, in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. It was not destemmed and was brought up in neutral, larger barrels. An exotic nose of ripe blue and black fruits, lavender, sappy flowers, and herbes de Provence-like nuances give way to a medium to full-bodied, richly textured, structured wine with a mouth-filling, layered, meaty style that builds nicely with time in the glass. There's always a sappy, almost herbal edge to this beauty, and it ages beautifully. Feel free to open bottles any time over the coming 15-20 years. It would certainly be hard to pick out in a lineup of top Northern Rhône Syrahs."
2017 vintage notes
93 points Wine Spectator: "Bold, yet polished and well-structured, with expressive blackberry, bacon fat and black olive flavors that build toward medium-grained, minerally tannins. Drink now through 2029."
