Apex 2001 Outlook Vineyard Syrah (Yakima Valley)

This single vineyard, 100% Syrah provides a clear look at why Washington state is poised to become the nation's leader in producing Rhône-style reds with genuine Rhône character. It's a barrel selection from the vineyard's oldest block (not that old, planted in 1997) but along with the usual dark fruit and pepper you find genuine scents of roasted meat and the garrigue herbs and spices that the Rhône can produce. Excellent length and concentration, but the real achievement here is the way winemaker Brian Carter has captured the essential aromas. Paul Gregutt
