The estate’s Walla Walla Valley Syrah, the 2014 Syrah The Deuce sports a deep ruby color to go with classic Walla Walla notes of plums, blueberries, leafy herbs and peppered meats. Ripe, supple, medium to full-bodied and elegant, it has considerable polish and purity, and shines more for its finesse and elegance than power or impact. It’s going to drink beautifully for a decade.

This wine is a blend of fruit from Les Collines, Forgotten Hills and SJR vineyards. It brings brooding but complex aromas of smoked meat, fresh herbs, citrus twist, red and blue fruit and mineral. The violet and red and blue fruit flavors show restraint and elegance, with an emphasis on purity.
James Suckling – 92 points
There are red- and dark-fruit aromas and flavors, showing additional depth from the Forgotten Hills. The fruits roll out in a wave of juicy cassis flavors. Tannins are supple yet solid. Give this some time to evolve in bottle. Try from 2020.
