2016 Abeja Syrah Walla Walla Valley - 92 PTS - VINOUS

2016 Abeja Syrah Walla Walla Valley - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(from the estate's Mill Creek Upland vineyard): Bright full ruby. Lively butt but subdued scents of cassis, blackberry, minerals, brown spices, violet and licorice; showing a distinctly dark side of Syrah. Intensely flavored, firm and juicy; not a particularly fleshy or pliant style but offers lovely inner-mouth violet lift and a dense weave to the flavors of dark berries and minerals. This serious Syrah boasts a firm spine of acids and tannins and finishes with sneaky persistence. Dry, laid-back and rather classic wine, in need of time in bottle to expand and gain in complexity. (14.7% alcohol) - Stephen Tanzer"

wine spectator 91 pts"Dark and smoky, with a lithe core of plum and spice emerging from under a layer of grippy tannins. The finish persists with insistence and intensity. Best after 2017. 182 cases made.- HS"

vinous logo 250"Aged in French oak, 30% new. Deep, saturated ruby. Wild, musky aromas of black raspberry, gunflint, spices and violet. Plush, tactile and sweet, offering surprising lift and definition to the flavors of dark raspberry, blackberry, smoked meat and violet face powder. Very expressive, fine-grained Syrah with subtle intensity and a lingering, ripely tannic finish. - Stephen Tanzer"

wine spectator 93 pts"Taut and firmly tannic, with a juice core of plum and spice flavors, picking up tapenade hints and gaining momentum on the expressive finish. Best from 2016 through 2020 - HS"
