K Vintners Morrison Lane 2014
Winemaker Notes :
Oldest Syrah plantings in the Walla Walla Valley, southeastern facing slopes, slightly cooler site in the foothills of the Blue Mountains. Tightly wound for a long life. Roasted earth, lavender, dried herb, and cured meat. Serious pedigree, serious wine.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Syrah Morrison Lane Vineyard from Walla Walla offers a perfumed bouquet of incense, white pepper, plum and hoisin sauce, as well as full-bodied richness, building tannin and a great finish. It needs short term cellaring to integrate those tannin, but is an impressive Syrah.
Wine SpectatorPrecise and tautly built, with a lively core of bright acidity and firm tannins, framed by deep notes of blackberry, salty wet slate and black olive. Best after 2018.
