Enjoying this bottle of 2008 Syrah gave me yet one more reason to plan a wine tasting weekend in Walla Walla. After seeing that it was awarded 94 points I had recently ordered two bottles from my local wine shop – and after dinner last night, I may need a few more bottles.
What Kontos has to say about this vintage:
A fruit forward Walla Walla Syrah that has little of the earthy character, making this an easy to enjoy wine for any occasion. The beautifully intense color mingles with the ﬂoral aromas of rose petal and wild flowers. Bacon hides amongst the rich stone fruits that anchor this wine. Enjoy Dec 2010-2017.
