Cottonwood Winery of Oregon 2007 Raya Jade Syrah, Yakima Valley, $15

By on April 5, 2013

Oregon wineBest Buy! This Willamette Valley winery brought in grapes from Crawford near the Yakima Valley town of Prosser, a vineyard that consistently provides great fruit to wineries across the Pacific Northwest. And this wine is a stunner. It opens with aromas of spicy plums, cordial cherries and bacon, followed by rich flavors of blackberry, boysenberry syrup and sizzling ham. It’s all backed with tannins that show a bit of rippling muscle – just enough to give us the structure we want for a great meal. At this price, the Cottonwood Syrah is a wine to buy by the case.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 650

Alcohol: 14.7%

Distribution: Available from the winery and in restaurants, grocers and specialty shops in Oregon and Washington.
