Charles Smith K Vintners, The Beautiful Syrah 2014, Walla Walla Valley USA

Charles Smith produces one of the best Syrahs. This deep black Syrah with a small percentage of Viognier delights with wonderful aromas of blackberry and liquorice, followed by strong herbal aromas. An elegant finish with fine tannins ensures the perfect taste experience.

This is how the wine is described by the winemaker; "It begins with a profound darkness, then gives way to black olive, hung meat, dark fruit and herbs. Assertive yet feminine. What else, if not beautiful?"

97 points, Jeb Dunnuck for Robert Parker-Wine Advocate 
"Always one of my favorite wines, this is the first vintage completely from the Powerline Vineyard. The 2014 Syrah The Beautiful offers a sensational bouquet of camphor, black olive, pepper, damp earth and assort dark fruit. Ripe, full-bodied, unctuous, yet still seamless and elegant, it's a totally awesome red to enjoy over the coming decade or more."  And continues; "All of the K Vintners see little to no destemming, native fermentations and ageing in French oak. As I've said in the past, these wines are the real deal!"
