Nefarious 2009 Defiance Vineyard Syrah (Lake Chelan)

Cellar Selection

It would be easy to miss the complexity of this wine, as it comes out of the bottle tight and unyielding. Give it a chance—decant it—and scents of cured meat, game, dried herb and asphalt slowly emerge. The cherry-flavored fruit is there as well, all in proportion, but hidden at first. Paul Gregutt
