Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Supple, generous and distinctive for its black olive and mineral overtones to a core of ripe currant and blackberry, lingering on the expressive finish against polished tannins.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Featuring a surprisingly generous (even by this estate’s standards thus far) 12% Viognier, Reynvaan’s 2009 Syrah The Unnamed reached 14.8% alcohol, relatively elevated in comparison with other of their wines, but hardly unusual for Walla Walla wines of this vintage. As so often at this address, one is greeted by briny, alkaline evocations of ocean breeze, here allied to smoky black tea, licorice, and confitured cherry. A subtle gaminess joins the saline mineral aspects in accenting the rich fruit on this wine’s expansive palate. A long, bittersweet finish misses the juiciness or sense of energy conveyed by the best wines here today (such as this bottling’s 2008 predecessor), but one forgives it much for its mineral intrigue as well as its sheer sweetness and length.

Walla Walla Valley Wine

Columbia Valley, Washington

Responsible for some of Washington’s most highly acclaimed wines, the Walla Walla Valley has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and is home to both historic wineries and younger, up-and-coming producers.

The Walla Walla Valley, a Native American name meaning “many waters,” is located in southeastern Washington; part of the appellation actually extends into Oregon. Soils here are well-drained, sandy loess over Missoula Flood deposits and fractured basalt.

It is a region perfectly suited to Rhône-inspired Syrahs, distinguished by savory notes of red berry, black olive, smoke and fresh earth. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create a range of styles from smooth and supple to robust and well-structured. White varieties are rare but some producers blend Sauvignon Blanc with Sémillon, resulting in a rich and round style, and plantings of Viognier, while minimal, are often quite successful.

Of note within Walla Walla, is one new and very peculiar appellation, called the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater. This is the only AVA in the U.S. whose boundaries are totally defined by the soil type. Soils here look a bit like those in the acclaimed Rhône region of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, but are large, ancient, basalt cobblestones. These stones work in the same way as they do in Chateauneuf, absorbing and then radiating the sun's heat up to enhance the ripening of grape clusters. The Rocks District is within the part of Walla Walla that spills over into Oregon and naturally excels in the production of Rhône varieties like Syrah, as well as the Bordeaux varieties.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
