Charles Smith K Vintners Morrison Lane Syrah Walla Walla Valley
International Wine CellarBright, full ruby. Tight, high-pitched aromas of blackberry and black cherry complicated by licorice and underbrush; this could hardly be more different from The Deal. Juicy and very primary, with slightly stunted flavors of black fruits, licorice and cool crushed stone. Extremely unforthcoming today, if not downright clenched, but structured to repay cellaring. A very successful vintage for this bottling.
