Gramercy Cellars Syrah – Walla Walla


From WINERY – A dark and brooding wine on the nose, showing primary aromas of fresh blackberries, Italian plum, and Teriyaki beef jerky. Secondary aromatics of anise, tarragon, black pepper, violets, and seared lamb. The Walla Walla Syrah has an umami characteristic that quickly gives it a sense of place. A mouth-coating palate, precise tannins, and a long finish with enough acidity to balance the overall weight of the wine. It starts with pure black fruit and reveals a gamey and peppery finish. Classic Walla Walla Syrah profile: combining the fruit of the New World with the earth of the Old World.

Combining Walla Walla Syrah from the Rocks with fresher, more structured, higher elevation hillside fruit creates a wine of elegance, power, and beauty. An incredible wine intended to be an everyday drinker. Co-fermented with 5% Viognier in concrete and small stainless-steel tanks at 90% whole cluster. #stemsrule  

Accolades   – “Aromatically lifted, the 2017 Walla Walla Syrah bursts with purple flowers, lavender, spiced plum, blackberries and black pepper with a subtle smoky flavor, dried herbs and wet river rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is nimble but offers layers of complexity with flavors of dusty dark cherry, black raspberry chutney and black pepper, showing a balanced structure with a dustiness at its heart. The wine delivers pleasure with lingering spice tones through the food-friendly finish, ending with lively tension and a seductive floral tone.” 

92 PTS – ANTHONY MUELLER, WINE ADVOCATE“I’m a sucker for Syrah that comes from The Rocks District and this is a blend from that area and the Forgotten Hills vineyard. For only $40, this is a perfect wine that isn’t an every day price point, but just a step above. Consider it your week day night out wine – and it’s fantastic. It gives lots of dried blackberry, dried beef jerky, grapefruit pith, saline and black peppercorn along with medium plus acidity, silky tannins and a medium to full body. For the money, this wine is a winner.” 93 PTS – INTERNATIONAL WINE REPORT
