Amavi Cellars Syrah Walla Walla 2014
Windfall. Blessing. Boon. Bonanza! Seriously, what do you call a 93-POINT powerhouse for this price? Godsend? Fat of the land? Largesse? Take your pick!! But whatever you do, DO IT as briskly and expediently as you possibly can! WOW!
Walla Walla continues to just CRUSH it, especially for Syrah, and we’re beyond stoked to have snagged a bit of this up-and-comer at a WICKED low price (to say the least!). This is Syrah for the adventurer, Syrah for drinking with gusto after a long day of Class 5 river rafting, freeclimbing in Zion, participating in a nunchuck challenge or honestly, for most of us, after mowing the lawn. But man, it is is soul-warming Syrah at its finest!! THE PRICE!! The madness continues, apparently…
HUGE, perfumey nose of crushed red and blue fruit, like you just went to the fruit stand and started squeezing everything in sight. Plums, berries, pluots, blueberry, you name it, squeeze it. But this is Syrah, so it's got a light kick of olives, teriyaki and pipe tobacco, with the perfect amount of baking spice. Warm and generous and texturally pretty silky for such a large-scaled wine. A colossal no-brainer in our book if you love big, rich, flavorful stuff! Will go fast!
Located in the heart of Walla Walla wine country, our winery & tasting room offer sweeping views of surrounding Pepper Bridge Vineyard as well as the beautiful Blue Mountains. Dedicated stewards of the land, we are committed to making a positive impact both within our estate vineyards and within our community.
