2017 Avennia Arnaut Syrah Yakima Valley - 93 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Syrah Arnaut Boushey Vineyard is 100% Syrah from Dick Boushey's terrific vineyard located on the western side of the Yakima Valley. This is a cooler site, and I always find a certain Northern Rhone-like character from this region. This 2017 has a touch of Saint-Joseph in its blacker berry fruits, spring flowers, spice, and peppery aromas and flavors. With a medium-bodied mouthfeel, wonderful purity of fruit, and a great finish, drink this elegant yet ethereal Syrah over the coming decade."
