K Vintners The Creator Cabernet Syrah
It has everything! It's hard to let go of the nose. Warm earth, under growth. Mouth filling suede, ethereal. This wine completes me.
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Leading off the Bordeaux blends, t The Creator (mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, yet with 30% Syrah) exhibits lots of tobacco leaf, damp herbs and wet stone-like notes to go with a core of cassis, graphite and lead pencil. Coming 58% from the River Rock Vineyard and 42% from Jack's Vineyard (both of which are in Walla Walla), this full-bodied, classically structured, age-worthy will have upward of two decades of longevity. As usual, this was a massive lineup by Washington's wild man, Charles Smith. Despite the larger-than-life persona, these wines are dead serious and are always some of the best I'm able to taste from the state. All of the Rhone varieties see 100% whole cluster, native fermentations and aging in mostly neutral French oak. At the top end, both the Royal City Syrah and Klein Syrah flirted with perfection, but the whole lineup is stacked with both quality and value. I think the are slightly superior to the '13s, but both of these vintages are strong here.
