92 points - Wine Spectator 2010 Nina Lee Syrah Walla Walla
Focused, lively, inviting and distinctive, with bay leaf and loam overtones to the bright blackberry flavor. Finishes with a floral flourish. Drink now through 2018. 04/30/2013
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

89 points - Wine Enthusiast 2009 Nina Lee Syrah Walla Walla
A significant ex¬pansion in the case production of this wine suggests that fruit from newly planted vineyards is now in the mix. This is a pure expression of pretty boysenberry with a red licorice highlight. A firm foundation of juicy acidity keeps it lively and fresh. 12/31/2012
90 points - International Wine Cellar 2009 Nina Lee Syrah Walla Walla
Blueberry, licorice and violet on the nose. Dense, sweet and concentrated, with generous dark berry, pepper and saline flavors given shape and clarity by ripe acidity. Plenty of extract here. I find this a bit brighter and more delineated than this producer's 2009 reds from Bordeaux varieties. 12/01/2012
