Brilliant Syrah from Washington State

Syrah Cattle King 2014

K Vintners - Charles Smith

Columbia Valley, Washington, USA

Wine Advocate 231 (Juni 2017) (Parker/Dunnuck)

99/100

Coming from the Upland Vineyard on Snipes Mountain, the 2014 Syrah Cattle King is a huge, powerful, unctuous beast that gives up decadent notes of black and blue fruits, freshly crushed rocks, graphite, iron and licorice. Unctuous, sexy and with gorgeous purity, it carries itself with incredible grace and elegance, without ever being over the top. It flirts with perfection and is one of the highlights of the vintage and the region. Give it a few years and drink through 2029.


One of my favorite tastings during my Washington trip is with Charles Smith and his right-hand man, Brenna Leighton. They have one of the most stacked lineups out there and their 2014s and 2015s are stunning across the board. Also, don't miss the Wines of Substance reviews in this report; these are the Bordeaux blends made by this team. All of the K Vintners see little to no destemming, native fermentations and aging in French oak. As I've said in the past, these wines are the real deal!
