A beautiful wine, with layers of cedary herbs, black cherries, currants, toasted spice and pencil lead, the 2014 El Jefe Tempranillo Stoneridge Vineyard hits the palate with full-bodied richness, an elegant, silky texture, plenty of concentration and a great finish. It’s just another incredible example of this variety coming from Washington. (JD)
Bright ruby-red. Alluring scents of cassis, black cherry, boysenberry and licorice are distinctly darker than those of the 2013 version. Pungent, juicy and high-pitched, in a tightly wound, rocky style, with its berry fruit lifted by an almost citrussy high note. Intense, penetrating Syrah with a strong element of saline minerality. This fairly sizable wine finishes with noteworthy salinity and energy but needs at least a few years of cellaring to unwind.
