BETZ Syrah, Yakima Valley, Red Willows Vineyard 'La Côte Patriarche' 2018

Betz continues to produce some of the best Syrah in Washington State. The La Côte Patriarche Syrah is the highlight of their lineup. A 100% Syrah from the Red Willows Vineyard is vinified with 70% whole cluster and spends 16 months in French Oak. A wine with a nose that can put you into a trance with aromas of Chambord, blackberry, black raspberry, black olive and tar - give this one a few hours in the glass and watch it evolve over time. The palate is inky with medium plus tannins that shows a savory melange of boysenberry, spanish olives, baking chocolate, charcuterie, dried sage. The finish is lengthy and ends with a mineral, saline quality. This wine deserves another 1-2 years in bottle before enjoying. Highly recommended. Only 250 cases produced
