Waterbrook Winery Reserve Syrah 2005
from Columbia Valley, Washington
Blend: 91% Syrah, 5% Grenache, 4% Viognier from the Stonetree and Elephant Mountain vineyards.
The personality of the local terroir is skilfully captured - inspiring a handsome, earthy wine that is packed with power and concentration.
Violet, leather and blueberry aromas float in the glass, wrapping the palate with black licorice, minerals, fig and dark chocolate. Bold texture eases into a lovely send-off of exotic spices.
"...smells like a bowl of cocoa and blackberries cloaked with the scent of violets and tar. It's juicy and delicious with explosive black cherry and black raspberry fruit..."
-Wines & Spirits
"Crisp and juicy, this is almost
preternaturally focused to show off its
blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit,
shaded by hints of mineral and cream
as the finish lingers effortlessly against
light, crisp tannins."
"Heady aromas of raspberry, plum and mocha. Ripe cherry flavors with a peppery, acidic edge. Lengthy finish with youthful, rough-hewn tannins."
The top 3 most liked reviews for this wine.
This wine is a wonderful surprise. It drank easily, finished well. Purchase if you are into big, dark berry flavors.
With wine prices skyrocketing, this is a good everyday wine for under $20. Doesn't "knock it out of the park", but is easy to drink, no sharp edges, and with dark cherry and a little black pepper. Great for BBQs.
