Cadaretta, Columbia Valley (Washington) Syrah 2014

($35):  A meaty, almost chewy, style of Syrah, it is certainly bold — 14.4 percent stated alcohol — but by no means overdone.  Freshness in the finish keeps it alive and keeps you coming back for another sip.  Toasty nuances complemented by a hint of bacon fat and suave tannins make it a good choice for hearty beef dishes this winter. 92 Michael Apstein Dec 5, 2017
