In the glass this Walla Walla Syrah has a black olive core with electric-purple edges that’re surrounded by a pink-purple halo…..
A sniff is FULL of greasy bacon fat, detritus, and MOUTHWATERING blue fruit ——–> A revisit unleashes a dried lavender flower blast and I AM IN LOOOOOOOVE…..
The palate has a coating start that shines a light on a blackberry and raspberry medley before showing a HUMUNGOUS smoked meat and red vine licorice kick ———-> A chew and a swish brings a spicy cassis note that settles slowly into more of the blueberries I got on the nose before a bit of game(y)ness piggybacks a black cherry skewer over a bonfire ending that’s got my jaw on the floor….
Syrah doesn’t have a season as it’s a winner ALL YEAR LONG but that said – it’s Syrah season, y’all!!! This one from Saviah Cellars outta Walla Walla is big and greasy and juicy, and gamey, and smokey, and DELICIOUS as all get out!!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with a song that balances greas(y)ness and twang with smoothness and beauty like Cody Jinks & The Tone Deaf Hippies – Dirt
