K Vintners Cattle King Syrah 2014


Syrah/Shiraz from Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley, Washington

Winemaker Notes:

A grown wine showing the vineyard and vintage in such a harmonious way. Purple fruit, mint, black olive and forest floor rest on a foundation of rock. Rich earth, full and compelling perfection.

Critical Acclaim:
97 Points – Jeb Dunnuck
From a site on Snipes Mountain composed of rocky, basalt soils (steep hillside slopes), the 2017 Syrah Cattle King is all Phelps clone that was not destemmed and was aged in 60% new oak. This deep ruby/plum-colored effort offers a complex bouquet of blackberries, mulberries, menthol, beef blood, and ground pepper. With a Cornas-like gaminess, medium to full body, and ripe, polished tannins, give it 2-3 years and enjoy over the following 10-15 years.
94 Points – James Suckling
Very ripe with blackberries and toffee. Caramel and brown sugar. Big wine. Full and flavorful.
