Dusted Valley Vintners 2013 Stoney Vine Vineyard Tall Tales Syrah, Walla Walla Valley, $60

That’s because their winery in Walla Walla is not in the same state as the vineyard – Oregon. Regardless, their latest bottling from Stoney Vine fits the profile of many acclaimed wines from The Rocks, offering notes of saddle leather and forest floor earthiness joined by huckleberry, roasted coffee and grilled red bell pepper aromas. Inside, it’s a big offering of ripe plum, blackberry and dark chocolate, backed by cherry pie acidity, pomegranate skin tannins and a savory finish.
