Syrah still strong in Washington
Worldwide, large-scale Syrah producers have been having difficulty selling their wines because Americans, it seems, have grown a bit weary of the red Rhône variety.
Yet Washington wineries crafting small amounts of Syrah seem to be having little difficulty selling their wines, and the reason is simple: Limited-production Syrahs are fantastic. Washington combines the best of the New World (rich, jammy, hedonistic) with the Old World (complex, layered, elegant), much to the delight of their fans.
Here are 12 superb Syrahs we’ve tasted in recent weeks. Give them a try.
