2016 Horsepower Syrah High Contrast Vineyard | Walla Walla Valley Washington 750ml


From a vineyard planted in 2013, the 2016 Syrah High Contrast saw loads of stems and mostly neutral barrels. This thrilling wine has a Chave Hermitage-like purity and class as well as gorgeous notes of cassis, black raspberries, smoked earth, and graphite. It's deep, pure and layered, incredibly layered, pure, and long, with a finish that won't quit. This isn't for those looking for an inky, massive wine, but it's pure class, complete, amazingly long, and elegant. Give bottles a few years in the cellar and it's going to shine for 15-20 years. | 100 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

Christophe Baron has been a pioneer of Biodynamic farming in the Walla Walla Valley of Eastern Washington. His vineyard sites are farmed in the same fashion as his Cayuse Vineyards with no herbicide, no pesticide, no fungicide, and no synthetic fertilizers. The tight meter by meter spacing with 1 vine per stake - "sur echalas" in French - allows just enough space for cultivation by Horse. The wines are a direct representation of their artisanal craftsmanship.
