92 points Washington Wine Blog: "The 2016 The Unnamed Series Syrah is a sensational new release that shows the wonderful warmth of the vintage. While vineyard sourcing is uncertain, the aromatics take me to their high elevation Foothills In The Sun Vineyard, with lovely thyme and sagebrush tones that mingle with suggestions of Hoisin sauce and wild blackberry. The palate has wonderful poise and a plush texture showing off ripe dark fruits and minerals — all leading to an exceedingly long and gratifying finish. Simply put, this wine is a steal at 25 dollars. Drink 2019-2025."
You know that we're huge on bargains.
This rockstar value is made from the same vineyards (In The Rocks and Foothills In The Sun) and made in the same way. But it's 1/3 the price of the Reynvaan namesake Syrahs. That's the kind of bargain that's not up for debate!
But how is it? Classic Walla Walla, classic Reynvaan. It's rich with an almost decadent texture (the kind that typically comes only with $$$), plus a stellar combo of dark cherry, olive tapenade, espresso, and a splash of spice.
We have a limited window on this, as we expect the winery to blow through their production in a flash. The wine will arrive in a couple weeks but we have to lock in our stash by Friday.
