Airfield Estates 2014 Syrah, Yakima Valley, $18

Of the more than 20 varieties grown across the Miller family’s 800+ acres in the foothills of Washington’s Rattlesnake Mountain, Syrah is among the standouts year-in and year-out, including the 2014 vintage. The 15 months in oak barrels helps account for jammy aromas of blueberry and cherry compote on toast, backed by a whiff of gaminess. They lead to flavors of plum and pomegranate, backed by dark chocolate and raspberry juice.
