    Deep, dark, ruby red color. The aromatics are quite complex and masculine offering scents of dense black fruits, bacon, brown baking spices, and cassis, with accents of black pepper, balsamic, and subtle oak notes. The palate echoes the nose delivering a lush fruit-driven core with competing notes of ripe, juicy blackberry foiled by balsamic and tart black cherry with flanking waves of brown spice and pepper. Full-bodied with an incredible deep core of fruit and spice while maintaining perfect balance with bright, fresh acidity. Made with 100% Syrah. $50 – 4 Stars – 92 points

  • Dussek Family Cellars Syrah Columbia Valley 2012

    Deep, dark ruby red with purple edges. The nose is wonderfully fragrant and floral with violets in the lead married with ripe cherry, plum, and cassis with hints of dark roast coffee, allspice, and vanilla. The palate fully confirms the nose delivering a rich and concentrated fruit centric core with loads of brown baking spices, cigar box, chocolate, and sweet earth tones in support. This is a generous Syrah with its greatest attribute being balance and complexity. It doesn't hurt that it's a pure pleasure to sip. Made with 100% Syrah. $20 – 4 Stars – 91 points

    Deepest, darkest, ruby red with purple highlights. After aerating (you must decant this wine) the true aromatics emerge offering scents of red and black cherry, plum, and blueberry with waves of heather, wild herbs, allspice, anise, and hints of vanilla bean. The palate absolutely confirms the fruit signature of the nose with subtle forest floor and smoked bacon notes joining the chorus. The spice signature builds on the finish with black pepper lingering for minutes. This is a rich and chewy wine with perfect balance so it never feels heavy or brooding. Subtle, soft tannins rise on the back-palate to offer structure and length. $40 – 5 Stars – 97 points
