Gramercy Cellars 2010 Lagniappe Syrah (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $55

Sourced from Red Willow, Olsen and Les Collines, this is the finest effort yet from Gramercy Cellars and one of the greatest Syrahs ever produced in Washington state. Think Hermitage with brighter fruit. It’s intensely aromatic, dense and seamless, stacked with rich flavors of mixed berries, layers of smoke, earth and herb, and punctuated by citrusy acidity…

Gramercy Cellars 2011 Syrah (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $50

In 2011 the alcohol drops a bit and the fruit comes forward, stepping slightly away from the strongly herbal flavors of the 2010. It’s reflective of the vintage, and perhaps more immediately approachable, without sacrificing any of the complexity or structure that typifies Gramercy wines. Strongly aromatic flavors of blackberry, black cherry, cola and licorice are…

Gramercy Cellars 2011 The Third Man Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $50

Grenache and Syrah are the mainstays here, with a splash of Mourvèdre completing the Third Man blend. For the first time, Uplands contributes some of the fruit. It’s immensely fragrant, fruity, peppery and rich with flavors of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and plum. There is nothing simple here; scents and flavors compound and linger, and the more you look, the…

Gramercy Cellars 2010 Syrah (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $55

This classy Syrah opens with a note of pretty funkiness, wrapped around stiff, tight, rather herbal flavors. The berry flavor is ripe but in no way jammy. Here the emphasis is on nuance, earthiness and herbal details.

Gramercy Cellars 2010 The Third Man Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $50

Comprised of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre, this is sharp upon entry, with snap and sizzle. It’s powered with tangy berry, pomegranate and sour cherry flavors, plus dashes of pepper and rock. It’s a complex, compelling and potentially age worthy.

Gramercy Cellars 2009 John Lewis Syrah (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $75

Aged in French oak puncheons, this youthful, citrusy, big and smoky wine seems to flicker in and out—like an old movie—with each sip revealing a different view of the landscape. Herb, cacao, cassis and balsamic flavors intertwine. The lengthy finish is balanced and structured.
