2012 Gramercy Cellars Columbia Valley Syrah

SKU #1178430 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is a blend of four distinctive sites-Minick and Olsen in the Yakima Valley, and SJR and Stoney Vine in the Walla Walla Valley. It pulls together the best of all of them, with brooding notes of mineral, wet stone, earthy funk, coffee, smoked meat and black and green olive. The palate steals the show, with hypnotic savory flavors that coalesce around a vibrant, extended finish. It’s a textural marvel that is simply impossible to put down. *Editors' Choice. 2015 Top 100* (SS) Inner quote mark (7/2015)

Outer quote mark The 2012 Columbia Valley Syrah offers lots of smoked herbs, olive tapenade, smoked duck and chocolaty dark fruits to go with a medium to full-bodied, supple, pure and layered profile on the palate. Made from 100% Syrah that saw 25% whole-cluster inclusion during fermentation and 18 months in 13% new French oak, drink it anytime over the coming 10-15 years. Lead by Greg Harrington and assistant winemaker Brandon Moss, Gramercy continues to go from strength to strength, and they have one of the most quality-packed lineups in the state.

Outer quote mark Bright dark red. Rather wild, musky aromas of currant and coffee are lifted by a floral note. Suave on entry, then quite dry in the middle, offering moderate depth to the flavors of dark berries, smoke, game and licorice. Can’t match the best of these 2012s for flavor intensity or depth but this is a good choice for early consumption. Finishes with slightly dusty tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Broad and juicy, with scents of blackberry and black spice and a plump texture, this has an appealing fruitiness that suggests it has the stuffing to age; give it time in the cellar, then serve with grilled leg of lamb. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Meaty black olive and spice flavors swarm around a lithe core of blackberry, coming together against nubby tannins on the harmonious finish. Drink now through 2019. (HS, Web Only-2015) Inner quote mark
