The finest vintage here since the 2015, the 2018 Syrah John Lewis boasts a deeper ruby/purple hue to go with thrilling notes of violets, tapenade, lavender, and peppered meats, all supported by a gorgeous core of ripe darker fruits. Medium to full-bodied, flawlessly balanced, and with building structure, this sensational Washington State Syrah will benefit from 2-4 years in the cellar and keep for two decades.
Blue and black fruits, damp earth, meat, smoke, pepper. Deep, dark, exotic, and more serious than past vintages. Aromatically - orange peel, clove, Provence herbs. Way more expressive on day two with red fruit emerging and the wine seeming more elegant. On the palate, ripe, rich, full, a bit dusty. Gets fresher as it opens. Balanced but needs time. Very primary fruit and meat. A hint of oak showing. Structure is in balance with medium+ acid and medium/medium+ tannin. Wait 3 years for wine to start coming into its full potential. Will age for 15+ years. Winery
