2014 Clearwater Canyon Cellars Syrah, Umiker Vineyards, Lewis-Clark Valley Estate, Idaho
Karl and Coco Umiker of Clearwater Canyon have made a style of Syrah that is a vast departure from the Old-world Languedoc or Rhone style wines. The nose expresses subtle baking spice, blueberries, and some grilled meat and fresh rosemary hovering in the background. For flavors, it is full-bodied, rustic and round, with layers of black and red fruits with a distinctive punch of plum, sage and lavender that comes through the midpalate, riding like a surfer on a 30-foot wave to the finish.
