91 points - International Wine Cellar 2010 Nina Lee Syrah Walla Walla Valley
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review 11/13/2013 Review: "Good dark red. Sexy, high-toned aromas of cherry, violet and black pepper. Large-scaled and savory, with a slightly sauvage character to the flavors of currant, blackberry and licorice. Penetrating acidity and a zesty citrus peel element give this wine excellent lift. Really saturates the palate and vibrates on the aftertaste, displaying a firm tannic spine and excellent grip and length. I'd hold this for two or three years to allow it to round out." 11/15/2013
91 points - The Wine Advocate 2009 Nina Lee Syrah Walla Walla Valley
"The 2009 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." 06/28/2013

90 points - Wine Enthusiast 2010 Nina Lee Syrah Walla Walla
This Syrah is aged for 21 months in 100% French oak—half of which was new. Spring Valley Vineyard has had a dramatic expansion, which has allowed it to increase production without damaging quality. Soft and smooth, this offers a pretty raspberry flavor that’s lightly peppery, with a hint of sweet grain and a side note of orange peel that rides on the tip of the tongue. It’s a pleasure to drink already, although it can be cellared for another 6–8 years. 04/01/2013
