93The Wine Advocate

...offers up notes of grilled meats, tapenade and blackberries, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety palate that is elegantly open-knit and succulent, concluding with a flavorful finish.

93Wine Enthusiast

Alluring aromas of herb, blackberry, bramble, green olive, flower and smoked meat lead to a richly flavored palate that explodes with abundant savory, meaty flavors. It drinks like a charcuterie plate, with plenty of fresh herbs rounding it out.

92Stephen Tanzer

Spicy, floral lift to the aromas of crunchy red berries, black pepper, licorice and minerals...boasts lovely inner-palate energy...with its intense blueberry and spice flavors enlivened by a pungent note of orange peel.

92James Suckling

...suave and moody...aromas of ripe blackberries, plums and chocolate, which lead to a palate with fresh, sappy and almost-tangy red fruits. Savory clove spices, too.


United States, Washington, Yakima Valley

Yakima Valley AVA was the first AVA created in Washington State. The valley, a 600,000-acre area in south central Washington, was granted AVA status in 1983. In 1984 Columbia Valley was given AVA status, and Yakima Valley was enclosed within the Columbia Valley AVA. Nevertheless, Yakima Valley remains home to the largest concentration of vineyards and wineries in the state. There are more than 60 wineries and some 16,000 vineyard acres, and nearly 40% of Washington wines are made with Yakima Valley grapes. The most frequently planted grape is Chardonnay, followed by Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaking here dates to 1869, when a winemaker from Alsace planted grape vines. Vineyard planting and wine production plodded along slowly until the early 1980s when numerous modern pioneers started making well-reviewed Yakima Valley wines. Some of the state’s newest, most closely watched appellations, including Red Mountain AVA and Horse Heaven Hills AVA, are contained within Yakima Valley.


Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
