93pointsQuady North 2015 Mae's Vineyard Flagship Syrah (Applegate Valley)

Editors' Choice

Mae's Flagship bottling is the winery's reserve, and it nicely bookends the exceptional Syrahs from the Rocks District at the other end of Oregon. Unusually, this uses 50% new French oak for aging, while many Syrahs use only neutral barrels. Here it works, with matching blueberry and black-cherry fruit, a burst of black licorice, and a finishing hit of coffee. The wine was cofermented with a bit of Viognier. Paul Gregutt
