REYNVAAN Syrah, Walla Walla Valley ‘Foothills Reserve’ 2019

The Foothills Reserve is a selection of 100% Syrah barrels from the vineyard surrounding the Reynvaan winery and has always been one of my favorites of the lineup. Displaying a stunning deep purple in the glass with a silver rim, aromas of blue plum, boysenberry, black raspberry, dried mint, graphite, smoked brisket, and green olive pop from the glass. It’s incredibly complex, powerful but elegant at the same time and is one of those wines you have to experience to fully comprehend. The nose is so intriguing, you almost forget to take a sip but when you do you are greeted with flavors of black cherry, boysenberry, purple flower petals, crushed black olive and black pepper. You don’t get the funk you do from the Rocks Vineyard wines, which is polarizing for some consumers, but you do get a balanced, structured, absolutely phenomenal Syrah that is expertly crafted. If you are new to Washington State Syrah, this would be my recommended bottle to buy and cellar for a decade or more. Highly recommended.
