One of Washington state’s most consistently outstanding examples of Syrah — regardless of the price — is Boomtown by Dusted Valley Vintners. This latest release marked the debut vintage of Griffin Frey, whose oversight for brothers-in-law Corey Braunel and Chad Johnson involves their continued collaboration on this brand with the Wahluke Wine Company. Gorgeous aromas of blueberry, black cherry and sweet oak include complex touches of earth, straw and bramble. It’s downright yummy, bringing flavors of Triple Berry Pie. The pomegranate acidity stays just ahead of the black currant skin tannins, providing delicious balance and showing itself as a cool-climate Syrah. This is the fourth consecutive vintage for the Boomtown Syrah merited our highest rating. And fortunately, they’ve nearly tripled production since 2011. Their agreement with Dreyfus, Ashby & Co., allows for Boomtown wines to be distributed in all 50 states, Ontario and Quebec.
Production: 3,060 cases
