Wine Advocate 90 points - Big, rich and voluptuously styled, the 2012 Syrah Walla Walla is another wine that shows the vintage nicely. Medium to full-bodied, with fabulous fruit and texture, it boasts loads of plum, blackberry, licorice, singed herbs and hints of meat in its forward, very drinkable personality. I don’t think it will make old bones, but it should continue to impress through 2020. (Jun 2014)
At Amavi Cellars, we have chosen to focus on Syrah wines which showcase the extraordinary quality and the unique, concentrated, fruit flavors of Pepper Bridge Vineyard and Seven Hills Vineyard, our Walla Walla Valley estate vineyards. Over the years, these estate vineyards have consistently produced grapes used by other Washington winemakers to produce Syrah wines of exceptional complexity, balance and concentration. ce.
