K VINTNERS Syrah 'Royal City' 2014

The 2014 'Royal City' is a profound wine from Charles Smith and amongst the best of its kind in Washington State. This is a simply incredible Syrah which begins with simply intoxicating aromatics of red currants, red fruits, green peppercorn, anise, dill, rose petals with citrus zest and wet stones adding additional complexity. The palate is round and velvety, yet energetic as it demonstrates remarkable balance and focus. Fantastic flavors of red cherries, black raspberries, blood orange, pepper, wet rocks, ash and raw meat expand beautifully on the palate. The impressive range of flavor and purity this offers is hard to match in Washington. Simply put, this is a sensational effort by talented winemaker Brennan Leighton, and will rival the best Syrah in the world.
