Name K Vintners The Deal 2020 (ID# 4165)
Varietal Syrah
Region USA: WA - Columbia Valley
Notes "As with almost all of the Syrahs here, the 2020 Syrah The Deal was not destemmed, saw an extended maceration, and spent 18 months in 40% new French puncheons. Deep ruby/purple-hued, it has an incredibly floral perfume of black and blue fruits, pepper, iron, and crushed stone. With medium to full-bodied richness, a focused, precision, elegant texture, and a great finish, it’s a gem of a Syrah as well as an insane value." (Jeb Dunnuck)

Additional Notes

"This has a seductive nose of black plums, dark cherries, dried violets, ash and honeycomb. Full-bodied, silky and caressing yet firm, too, with polished tannins and a lovely floral character." (James Suckling) "Pure, fresh and dark-fruited, the 2020 Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard opens to a nose filled with black raspberry, resinous purple flowers and soft dusty aromas that lift from the glass with pink peppercorn notes. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is still tight and mineral-driven on the palate, with pure flavors of spiced plum skin and dark cherries, a balanced structure and lifting tannins. The wine concludes with a floral, red-fruited finish and lingering spice notes. It's a brilliant wine that rested for 21 months in French oak barrels, 40% new. Bravo!" (Wine Advocate)
