Jeb Dunnuck Review
Rated 94
The 2018 Syrah Olsen Brothers Vineyard, from a site in Yakima Valley, is a mix of clones that were not destemmed, and it was brought up mostly in neutral oak. It's a classic Yakima Valley Syrah with its full-bodied, rich, meaty style as well as ample darker fruits and notes of smoked game, chocolate, tapenade, and spice. It reminds me of a great vintage of Jaboulet's Domaine de Thalabert and should keep for 15 years. Drink 2021-2035.

Wine Tasting Notes
Dark, dark and brooding like a great film noir. Wet rich earth, charred Herb de Provence, fresh black cherry compote continuous with a firm, luscious and salivating mouthfeel. This wine is gorgeous and unlike most film noir, this finishes with a happy ending filled with love and tears of joy.

100% Syrah
