With all the depth and richness you've come to expect from this single vineyard bottling - black cherry, earth, roasted meat, even charcoal abounds add dried herb. A thread of minerality and it all comes together in an exact and generous expression that speaks volumes as to why Washington Syrah is great!

Wine EnthusiastThough labeled as Washington State, all of the fruit from this wine comes from Oldfield Vineyard in the Yakima Valley, next to famed Boushey Vineyard. The aromas are brooding on first pour, with notes of berry, fresh herb, orange peel, ground rock, bacon fat and smoke. The palate is full of seamless fruit and savory flavors. The tannins give a firm squeeze. Give it a decant if opening in the near term.

Wine SpectatorA broad-shouldered red, with vivid blueberry, bittersweet chocolate and black olive flavors that power toward big but refined tannins. Best from 2020 through 2026. 1,440 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 MCK Syrah is rich and complex, wafting from the glass with notes of grilled meat, creosote, licorice and roasted black fruits. On the palate, it's full-bodied, juicy and youthfully chewy, with some firm structuring tannins that will require some bottle age to melt and a dry, savory and somewhat wild finish.
