Always one of Washington's best red wine values, the latest version of Rulo's Syrca marries a Syrah-dominant nose to a mouthfeel that is lithe and muscular. Flavors mix fruit preserves with harmonious barrel influences –coffee grounds, cocoa and toast. Slightly grainy, full-bodied, and totally delicious.
