he 2018 Syrah Mahana comes from the River Rock Vineyard in the Rocks region of the Walla Walla Valley. It offers exotic notes of blue fruits, lavender, violets, wood smoke, and sweet earth, and while it has some classic Rocks funk, it shines for its beautiful purity of fruit. Medium to full-bodied, rounded, and elegant, I love its tannins, the balance is spot on, and it’s going to deliver the goods for 10-15 years.”
