2014 K Vintners - Motor City Kitty Syrah (90 pts) #winereview @kickasswawine 路 鈩癸笍 In the 2014 vintage the fruit was sourced 馃挴 from the River Rock vineyard in Yakima Valley, Washington State. Sustainable farming 馃憤 Native yeasts 馃憡and 43 days of skin maceration. 30% new French oak and aged for 22 months on the lees路 馃憖 Deep purple color with a pale rim路 馃憙 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of atomic fireballs (the cinnamon candy), black plums, blueberry, pie crust, sage, violets, and dusty路 馃憛 On the palate the wine is dry, medium acidity, medium+ ripe and powdery tannins, medium+ alcohol, and medium+ body. Flavors on the palate are very similar to the nose. The cinnamon is less pervasive. Thoughts of Hungarian plum dumplings and blueberry pie that you dropped on the floor (5 sec rule) then ate, keep running through my mind. Great texture to the wine that is almost silky. Medium length finish that highlights ripe blueberries and violets路 馃敂 I will be honest, that I always want the wine to speak for itself and not get hung up on the marketing. Charles Smith is clearly a HUGE personality. Therefore I want to discount his wines due to the wacky names and kitschy labels, BUT everytime I drink his wines I am impressed by the quality and value they deliver. This wine brings big bold flavors and is not shy, but also not over the top nor trying to be Cote Rotie. Think enjoyable, accessible, and affordable. 馃憤路 #washingtonstate #syrah #yakimavalley #riverrock #charlessmithwines #kvintners #winesofsubstance #washingtonwine #wine #vin #vino #钁¤悇閰 #vinho #wein #winelover #winegeek #winetasting #wsetdiploma #winestagram #wineterroir #sommelier #winelife #wineoclock #postmorewine #lovewine #winetime #wineporn #instawine #motorcitykitty
