The Critics Are All Raving About This Washington Syrah

2007 Rasa QED Syrah Walla Walla
Free Shipping on Three or More, PLUS $36 off Coupon on Six!

Everyone has heard of the world class Syrahs from Cayuse in Walla Walla Valley, Washington, who came onto the scene in 1998. Their first reviews from the Wine Spectator and the Wine Advocate were 93 and 87 respectively. Today, everything seems to be 95-98 points.

Now, the new and hot winery on the scene in Washington is Rasa Vineyards. Their 2007 Rasa QED Syrah really impressed us recently in a tasting. Only 640 cases produced. Ultra-ripe and concentrated with great length and finesse on the finish.

The 2007 QED Syrah is their inaugural wine and they’ve made quite a statement with the level of quality! The critics have agreed as well with scores of 94 in the Wine Spectator, 94 in the Wine Enthusiast, 93 in the Wine Advocate, 93 in the Rhone Report, and 91 from the International Wine Cellar.

2007 Rasa QED Syrah is destined for greatness much like Cayuse with its early reviews from the critics! $39.99 per bottle with Free Shipping on 3 bottles.

Wine Spectator 94 Points-- Supple, complex and distinctive for its black olive and mineral character, all wrapped in a blanket of ripe blackberry fruit and nappy tannins, persisting impressively on the long, vibrant finish. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Best from 2012 through 2017. 640 cases made. –HS

Jay Miller, Wine Advocate 93 Points-- The first release, the 2007 QED is made up of 94% Syrah, 3% Grenache, and 3% Mourvedre sourced from several top vineyards. It was aged in 25% new French oak. Dark ruby-colored, it offers up a classy nose of pepper, mineral, smoked meat, game, spice box, and blueberry. This leads to a mouth-filling, intense, super-concentrated, opulent wine that has enough underlying structure to evolve for 3-4 years. It will deliver much pleasure through 2022 if not longer. This is a very fine debut indeed!
