    Toss your K Vintners preconceptions aside! Yes, this 2015 is extremely well-crafted, and yes it has no shortage of lush blue and black fruits, but it has a distinctly stony character that suggests a more European lineage. The nose is fabulous serving up a melange of wild berry, fresh violets, espresso, and tapenade notes. All of this is echoed on the palate, which also introduces flavors of red and black pepper spice. Slate also jumps on the scene and carries well into the finish. It seems with each passing vintage K Vintners ups their game, of which this 2015 is a great example. This is truly a special wine that earned every one of the 98 points it received from the Wine Advocate. Whether you love new world or old world Syrah, this Washington red belongs on your short list.

    We've been following K Vintners for years, but after the press for their 2015s, this is one we had to try for ourselves. The aromas are deeply pitched but don't indicate a lush or heavy wine; instead it is full of tart red and black fruits with hints of baking spice and cured meats. The palate is also well-judged and extremely balanced, compact and seamless but with no sense of heaviness. There is a good dollop of deep red and bright black fruit with a pepper-coated finish and terrific texture. While I've enjoyed many more hedonistic bottlings from K Vintners, this has me thinking Northern Rhone all the way. What a terrific wine, made even more amazing by the extremely modest price point. This seems like one for the long haul but can be enjoyed now all the same.
