first photo is me about to leave for my Bastille Day wine tour last year, a fun day to work
Picture # 7 is a recent Rhone tasting I did at the Four Seasons Hotel, sponsored by the Wine Spectator for the" Taste WA" event in March 2018. I tasted 3 French Syrahs from the N Rhone, and 5 Washington Syrahs from different AVA/s The terrior and the wine makers styles showed distinct differences. All of the WA wines showed more fruit up front as you would expect but the wine from 2 vintners "rocks AVA" in Walla Walla was the most unique by far, unlike any syrah in the world, that I have tasted
