You will taste pure terroir with the 2010 Unnamed Syrah, hints of shattered stone, crushed fig, anise and raspberry. This wine has a fantastic mouthfeel with a long finish.
"The 2010 Syrah The Unnamed has the most texture and fruit of the lineup. A big, full-bodied effort that never seems heavy or cumbersome, it offers up layers of Syrah-driven fruit, pepper, underbrush, iron and game to go with voluptuous, yet elegantly styled mouthfeel, no hard edges and thrilling purity. Already reasonably approachable due to its wealth of fruit, it nevertheless has the back-end structure and concentration to evolve for 12-15 years or more. Drink now-2025. Made by Matt Reynvaan, with consulting help from Christophe Baron of Cayuse, these impeccably made wines deliver unique, perfumed and complex profiles that could come from nowhere else than the Walla Walla Valley. In addition, their ability to deliver stunning richness and depth, with no apparent weight, puts them up near the top of the Washington State hierarchy. Going forward, the plan is to produce three co-fermented reds and two pure Syrahs: the Unnamed Syrah co-fermented with Grenache Blanc; the In The Rocks co-fermented with Viognier; the Contender co-fermented with Marsanne; and both the Foothills Reserve and Stonessence made from 100% Syrah. In addition to these brilliant reds, I was blown away by their whites and they are easily the most exciting white wines I was able to taste from the state. Don’t miss these wines!" -Jeb Dunnuck
