    ($70) Deep, bright red-ruby. Pungent aromas of black pepper, smoke, flint and dark raspberry. Super-silky and concentrated, with a texture that's simultaneously chewy and seamless. The intense blackberry flavor is lifted by strong black pepper and garrigue notes that carry through to the extremely long, gripping finish. This syrah's lovely combination of sweet dark berry fruit and saline character makes it a very satisfying and complex drink.

    Broad and spicy, this is distinctive for the burnt tobacco, cherry, blackberry and roasted red pepper flavors, finishing with depth and expression. Not a crowd-pleasing profile, but has plenty to offer.

    Checking in at the same alcohol level of 14.2% as the 2008, the 2007 Syrah Armada Vineyard is a noticeably bigger, richer, more full-bodied wine that exhibits thrilling white pepper, underbrush, cedary spice and sweet dark fruits on both the nose and palate. Big, full-bodied, decadent and massive, yet still balanced and even elegant, it has surprising tannic grip through the finish and certainly doesn't lack for length. It's beautiful now for sure, but will be even better in another 2-3 years.

    Wine Advocate # 190 Aug 2010 Jay Miller The 2007 Syrah Armada Vineyard (100%) was aged in Rostaing puncheons, one of them new, for 30 months. Aromatically, it is the most brooding and Cote-Rotie-like of these Syrahs with notes of smoke, meat, game, garrigue, lavender, and blueberry. The most tightly wound of the Syrahs, it is the one that will most profit from several years of cellaring. It should offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2027.

In a state most often associated with rain and apples, vineyards occupy more land each year. Nearly all of this vineyard expansion has taken place in the eastern part of the state, where arid, almost desert-like conditions prevail. Winters are harsh and frost is always a threat, but such conditions, along with sandy soils, have allowed most Washington vines to grow on their own rootstocks—a rarity among wine regions throughout the world.
