2017 K Vintners "Rock Garden Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

SKU #1474505 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark This great site in the Rocks region of Walla Walla has produced a gamey, meaty 2017 Syrah Rockgarden that sports a medium ruby/plum color, Hermitage-like notes of blackcurrants, graphite, smoked game, pepper, and leafy herb, medium to full body, ripe, powerful tannins, and a great finish. There are just 361 cases made, but it’s a brilliant wine. This is what I call a stacked lineup from K Vintners, and the team of Charles Smith and Brennon Leighton continue to make brilliant wines. Inner quote mark (4/2020)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Rockstar juice, the 2017 Syrah Rock Garden Vineyard shows whole-cluster expressions with high-toned red fruits, a floral and mineral lift, black raspberry, soft oaky nuances and aromas of black pepper, cured meats and roses. Medium to full-bodied, the wine offers a vibrant and lively mid-palate that is balanced and shows tight tannins followed by flavors of bitter black tea, blackberry and cracked pepper. Ending with a long, winding finish, this Syrah is going to be a crowd-pleaser at this price. Absolutely delicious. (AM) Inner quote mark (12/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This shows lots of floral character with green tobacco and meat on the nose and palate. It’s full and decadent with lots of rich fruit. Juicy finish. Inner quote mark (5/2020)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "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. 100% Syrah / 100% whole cluster pressed / Native yeast / 48 days on skins / 42% new French oak puncheons / 21 mo. barrel-aged on lees."
