Accolades for Syrah

Seattle Times Raves about 2001 Syrah

"Here is everything you want in syrah..."

Paul Gregutt, Seattle Times "Wine Adviser", October 28 2003


…I must congratulate winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla...Now she has released the first few wines from her own winery, Forgeron Cellars, in Walla Walla. They are simply sensational; limited production, sophisticated winemaking, very fair prices.

It is often said that wines are made in the vineyard. Yes, but...the real artistry happens at the winery, under the guidance of uniquely gifted winemakers. All of these wines are highly recommended.

Recommended wines from Marie-Eve Gilla

Forgeron Cellars 2001 Syrah ($29). A dense, dark wine, scented with meaty fruit, smoke, toast & tar. Here is everything you want in syrah: sweet berries, spicy, toasty oak, & highlights of cinnamon & pepper.
