Reynvaan Family Vineyards 2007 The Contender Syrah (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

Co-fermented with Marsanne, this shows more forward fruit than Reynvaan's In The Rocks Syrah. It's dominated by fruit, spice and pepper, along with a hint of granite. The herbal side of the grape is here a bit constrained, and the wine has the structure—especially the minerality—to age for a considerable time. For young fruit (first leaf) it's a triumph, and promises great things to come. Paul Gregutt
