2000 Chateau Ste Michelle, Syrah Reserve, Columbia Valley
|Date tasted:||3 June 2004|
|Price when tasted:||£13.50|
The best wine from Washington State's oldest winery, founded in the Columbia Valley in 1934. Great depth of colour, really fine earthy, gamey aromas with all the energy and length of a top Hermitage. A must-try wine for Syrah fans, which will develp for a further decade.
