Spring Valley Vineyard Nina Lee Syrah.-
92 points - Wine Spectator
This 100% Syrah is named for the wife of Frederick Corkrum. Fred knew Nina Lee was for him when he first saw her, in 1926, working in the cashier's cage at the Liberty Theatre in Walla Walla. Nina Lee gave up her promising dance career when they married three years later, just before the Great Depression hit America in 1929. They began their struggle to keep the ranch afloat, which they did with great success.
Syrah Nina Lee is 100% Syrah, fermented with a touch of stem that was added back, that spent 21 months in 35% new French oak. Classy all around and certainly an outstanding bottle of wine, it offers classic blackberry, violet, underbrush and spice-driven aromas and flavors as well as a medium-bodied supple and polished texture on the palate. Balanced, rich and with superb purity of fruit, it should continue to shine for another 4-5 years. Drink now-2018. Located in the northern part of the Walla Walla Valley and producing wines completely from their estate vineyard, Spring Valley Vineyard falls under the Ste. Michelle umbrella and the wines are made by Serge Laville. Featuring polished, elegant profiles that have solid richness, these wines will all have long drink windows."
