"Featuring a surprisingly generous (even by this estate’s standards thus far) 12% Viognier, Reynvaan’s 2009 Syrah The Unnamed reached 14.8% alcohol, relatively elevated in comparison with other of their wines, but hardly unusual for Walla Walla wines of this vintage. As so often at this address, one is greeted by briny, alkaline evocations of ocean breeze, here allied to smoky black tea, licorice, and confitured cherry. A subtle gaminess joins the saline mineral aspects in accenting the rich fruit on this wine’s expansive palate. A long, bittersweet finish misses the juiciness or sense of energy conveyed by the best wines here today (such as this bottling’s 2008 predecessor), but one forgives it much for its mineral intrigue as well as its sheer sweetness and length. This will be worth following and might well improve over the next 6-8 years, if not longer." - David Schildknecht, robertparker.com (Dec 26, 2012)
