2014 Reynvaan "Foothills Reserve" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

SKU #1309459 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Showing similar to last year, the 2014 Syrah Foothills Reserve is a dead ringer for a traditionally made Côte Rôtie. Black olives, black raspberries, blackberries, bacon fat and licorice all flow to a rich, concentrated, yet juicy Syrah that has fine tannin and serious length. It's a gorgeous wine and will drink well for a decade. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark In his reserve syrah, Matt Reynvaan is aiming for a richer, darker, more masculine version of Foothills fruit, and perhaps that’s achieved: There’s a ton of intensity and concentration here. But the aromatics are so detailed and precise—spiced chocolate, tanbark, a hint of stem bitterness—that it feels as if a breeze is blowing through the glass. The tannins close the wine firmly, but that lift and detail give the wine the balance it needs, for something meaty, say, a New York strip. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a shockingly good wine. The aromas draw you into the glass, with vibrant notes of capers and Kalamata olives, brine, smoke meat, mineral, black pepper and earth. The fruit and savory flavors—speckled by black and green olive notes throughout—show a compelling sense of texture and richness. It's a savory delight. (SS) Inner quote mark (9/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A wine with serious torque and persistence, offering bold and savory aromas of smoky meat, blueberry and dark chocolate and dense but complex flavors of plum, olive and cracked pepper. Finishes with robust but ripe tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (7/2017)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark ruby-red. Alluring scents of black raspberry, roasted meat, truffle and black olive tapenade, complicated by musky herbs, pepper, licorice, spices and cola. A step up from the Syrah In the Hills in silkiness of texture. Concentrated, fine-grained and quite dry, but with lovely fruit ripeness. Also denser and more focused than the In the Hills, with more stuffing to support its tannins. Reynvaan picks this vineyard (Foothills in the Sun) nearly three weeks later than his vines in The Rocks, and the yield here is typically just 1-1/2 tons per acre. (ST) Inner quote mark (10/2017)
