Tasting Notes

WA92+

The single-vineyard Syrah, the 2012 Syrah Walker Vine Hill comes from the heart of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay country in Russian River, just up the street from the Kistler and Dehlinger wineries. Relatively modest in alcohol by certain California Syrah standards (13.7%), it was aged 20 months in 23% new French Oak. The wine, which they’ve been producing since 2001, has a deep ruby purple color, a big sweet kiss of roasted meats, herbs, pepper and spice, blackberry fruit that unfolds gracefully in a full-bodied but elegant, stylish nose, with a hint of pepper and spice box. The last vintage will be 2013, as they will no longer have access to this vineyard. This wine should drink well for 10-15 years.
