2014 Reynvaan "The Contender" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

SKU #1278475 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Syrah The Contender from Matt Reynvaan is a perfumed, elegant, finesse driven example of this cuvee (it's normally one of the more concentrated, burly wines in the lineup) that offers classic Old World notes of olive tapenade, smoked duck, pepper and dark black and blue fruits. Medium to full-bodied, silky and downright elegant, drink it anytime over the coming decade. This cuvee is 94% Syrah and 6% Marsanne. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Very dark aromas of blackberry, blueberry, crushed stone, licorice and mocha. A substantial but seamless wine with a darker fruit character than the In the Rocks Estate and The Unnamed bottlings. Harmonious acidity nicely cuts the weight of the wine. Suave, pretty, edge-free Syrah with a note of citrus fruit from the inclusion of a bit of co-fermented Marsanne. Like the In the Rocks Estate, this wine was vinified with about 20% whole clusters. (ST) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Blended with 6% Marsanne, the aromas are light (considering the appellation and producer), bringing notes of herb, smoked meat, white pepper, mineral and earth. The flavors are tart and bright, creating a real sense of freshness and vibrancy.(SS) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Precise and well-structured, with crushed stone and smoky plum aromas and persistent flavors of currant, black olive and orange zest that finish with big but refined tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (4/2017)
