    Focused on small-lot, vineyard designated Syrahs and field blends, K Vintners consistently produces some of the most incredible values available on the market. A prime example of such is their latest release of MKC Syrah - for less than thirty-five bucks you're getting a bottle that can compete with the best that Washington has to offer. Black fruit, liquefied rock, dried herbs, game and other savory notes are front and center here. This is one not to miss, and if history repeats itself this wine will sell through in the blink of an eye.

    After the 2013 sold out in minutes after a big WA score, the 2014 immediately had big shoes to fill. That said, the vintage was a massive success for the region and it shows in spades here. While the '13 felt more hedonistic, this version shows structure and definition at all the right places. Big without being heavy, it somehow strikes the balance of some of the big name Syrahs, but does so at a fraction of the price. It'll be hard to beat at this price for Syrah of this quality from anywhere in Washington, California, and perhaps the Rhone as well. Another stunner for the MCK label.

    This brilliant release from K Vintners is spicy and packs a punch, but with a playfully elegant acidity, just what you'd expect from a wine called Motor City Kitty. This Syrah is sourced from the highest elevation in Boushey vineyard, and shows the complexity and elegance of a fine Côte Rôtie, but with the drive and power of a fleet of Mustangs and Camaros.
