03 Magnificent Wine Company, Walla Walla Valley Syrah

Yet another Rhone-inspired syrah from Charlie Smith, this time from his second label, the 03 Syrah is edgy, peppery, and strong. With so much texture, it seems nearly as sauvage as some Cornas, and the decadent aroma of cayenne pepper and fatty pork sausage back that up. Ultimately, it is a fruit-driven, New World wine. The great ripe wild blueberry flavors the region has become so famous for are in full effect here, finishing slightly creamy with lots of jam and fine sandpapery tannins.
