Trader Joe's, Reserve Syrah Lot #237, Columbia Valley, Washington, USA 2021
(at Los Angeles, California, 23 Apr 2023)
Drinking Window: 2023 - 2026
A structured Syrah from the Wahluke Slope, one of the warmest regions in the state. Dark fruits like cherries and plums, with savoury, meaty notes with aromatic intensity. Structurally, the palate gives brawny, chalky tannins and strong flavour intensity, with the notes on the nose confirmed on the palate. This wine would get a boost when enjoyed with a meal—perhaps a braised lamb shank.
