Reynvaan White Queen's Road/Reynvaan "The Contender" Syrah Sale
The 2019 Syrah The Contender (which includes 6% Marsanne) comes from the In the Rocks Vineyard in the Rocks region of Walla Walla Valley. It has a more reductive vibe in its darker blue and black fruits as well as crushed stone, new leather, dried flowers, and graphite aromas and flavors. Nicely balanced on the palate and medium to full-bodied, it has a more structured, tight, backward style, with some troubling obvious SO2 notes (hence the ? on the score), and the cellar is going to be your friend on this one. Hide bottles for 4-5 years, and it should see its 20th birthday in fine form.
