Maryhill Winery's 2011 Proprietor's Reserve Syrah wins Platinum & Best of Class



Maryhill Winery, Columbia Valley (Washington) Syrah Proprietor's Reserve 2011 ($25): Washington's growing reputation for world-class Syrah is hardly a fluke, and this gem from Maryhill is a fine example of the genre. It is impeccably balanced, with savory, smoky aromas and pretty blue fruits. The tannins are nicely integrated and the wine is smooth and long on the palate. Best of all, this wine over performs at its price point. A platinum-award winner and Best of Class Syrah at Winemaker Challenge V. 91 Robert Whitley Jan 28, 2014
