K Vintners Rockgarden Syrah 2016
Purity speaks! A creature of its vineyard. Stone, Asian five spice, game, cocoa, dried herbs and cold riverbed aromas that waft up from the glass and fill your senses with the most amazing perfume. WOW.

Jeb DunnuckComing from a site in the Rocks region of the Walla Walla Valley, the 2016 Syrah Rock Garden boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of red fruits, spring flowers, ground pepper, and assorted leafy, herbal notes. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, and just a straight-up sexy wine, drink it any time over the coming decade.
James SucklingAn intense peppery edge with dried-rose and potpourri notes, leading to a palate that has a lean and focused edge with a fleshy mid-palate and a forthright, dark-fruited finish. Drink or hold.
Wine SpectatorExpressive river stone and blueberry aromas open to silky and refined raspberry, licorice and black olive flavors that build on the dynamic finish. Drink now through 2026.—
