89pointsBarnard Griffin 2005 Syrah (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is tight, leafy, tannic and young, but it nicely captures the Wahluke Slope AVA style, with tight edges, crisp acids, citrus rind nuances, and a polished mouthfeel. It seems to gather strength as it sits on the palate; and it will profit from more time in bottle. But the balance is already there, the fruit is tangy but ripe, and the acids are just perfect.
