"Big and broad, delivering a powerful mouthful of black cherry, plum and spice flavors that explode through the long, raucous finish. The tannins are nicely submerged, but this is a bit hot and needs time to settle into itself. Best from 2009 through 2015. 250 cases made." -92 points Wine Spectator

"The 2006 Pixie Syrah which was sourced from the Kiona Vineyard in Red Mountain. It was aged in 60% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, the huge, brooding bouquet displays balsam wood, earth notes, smoked meat, pepper, and blueberry. Made in a no-holds-barred style, this is a slightly uncivilized, thick, dense, chewy Syrah with opulent fruit, plenty of structure, and exceptional length. At the moment, it lacks complexity so it will be fascinating to see what might evolve with 4-6 years of cellaring. Gorman Winery, owned, operated, and staffed entirely by Chris Gorman, began in 2002 and currently produces 1600 cases out of a Woodinville warehouse." -91 Points- Jay Miller- The Wine Advocate

"This is bright, hot, spicy and (initially at least) showing some high tones that lift the flavors but also attenuate the midpalate. It’s aromatic, with sweet cherry fruit, hot and spicy tannins and enough new oak (60%) to add butter and butterscotch to the finish." -90 Points Wine Enthusiast

WINE:
"This wine was aged for 20 months in 60% new French oak barrels and only 225 cases were made." -Winery

WINERY:
"Chris Gorman descended into the wine business after graduating from university in 1991, apparently too affected to climb out, he made the best of it. Cutting his teeth on world class Barolo and Barbaresco, he spent three years working with a small Italian importer and never looked back...His is a simple philosophy; to make wine, it is imperative to understand it. Those early years found him producing small batch wines, using 'stolen fruit' from many of Washington's finest vineyards. In 2002, Gorman Winey went public." -Winery
