2011 Forgeron Cellars Syrah, Walla Walla Valley, Les Collines Vineyard (Tasting Rooms only)

"Deep ruby-colored, this wine emits unmistakable Syrah aromas of boysenberry, blueberry, cassis, lavender, violets and spiced incense. It is suave, yet vigorous, on the palate, with intermixtures of licorice, cocoa powder, French roast and South Valley loess silt earth and minerals. The grainy-textured back reveals sensations of macerated berries, crème de cassis, charcoal and crème fraiche, followed by a lingering spiced and oaked (66% new French) ripe tannin finish that is lifted by bright fruit acids. 19/20 points."
