The 2016 Syrah Sur Echalas Vineyard is a more meaty, savory effort that just jumps out of the glass with its ground black pepper, peat moss, cured meat, and smoky red and black raspberry fruits. Meaty, rich, concentrated, medium to full-bodied, with a tight, backward vibe, hide this in the cellar for 3-5 years and it will have two decades of longevity. | 98+ points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.comChristophe 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.
