K Vintners Syrah Powerline Vineyard 2016

America, Washington
K Vintners Syrah Powerline Vineyard

Smooth tlike porcelain and aromas that echo the history of Syrah. Black pepper, forest floor, suede, pipe tobacco, lavender and flavors of the same and more for this earthbound wine.
Dried plum, sarsaparilla, stone on tongue and green olive. Mediun-bodied. Full-flavored. Flowless.


98 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate) (v2015)
“Made from 100% Syrah, the 2015 Syrah Powerline Vineyard is much more backward, brooding, and mineral-laced, with sensational notes of blackcurrants, cassis, crushed rock, and tapenade.

A true powerhouse on the palate, with terrific concentration, building tannin, and a great, great finish, it's a singular, incredible wine that does everything right.

Give bottles 2-3 years and enjoy over the following decade.”

98 points, 2015vintage, Vinous/ Tanzer
“(from vines in a rocky ancient river bed): Saturated ruby-red. Complex musky nose melds blackberry, boysenberry, mocha, crushed rock, licorice and herbs.

Classically dry but smooth and suave, with purple fruit and graphite flavors lifted by black petter and complicated by a saline quality.

Hints of nuts and game contribute an element of wildness. A real essence of Syrah--a bit uncompromising today but with essentially easygoing tannins.”

Winery Description

Charles Smith’s explosion onto the world wine scene has been nothing less than phenomenal. Winemaker Charles Smith managed Rock & Roll bands in Europe for 11 years before moving to Walla Walla and starting K Vintners on a shoestring. While Charles’ wines radiate the excitement of his Rock & Roll roots, they are grounded in serious quality and value. Charles bottles his brands under several labels. Charles Smith Wines are made for the way that most wines are being consumed today - the day that they are purchased - and are equal parts accessible, affordable and top quality. Charles also produces some of the most interesting and highly rated Syrah in America under his original K Vintners label. K Vintners’ wines are made in very small quantities and are crafted to appeal to the most discriminating connoisseurs. In the past 10 years Charles Smith Wines and K Vintners have garnered 66 scores of 95 points and above and over 300 scores of 90 points and above from the leading U.S. wine publications : Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, and Wine Enthusiast.
