93 points - The Wine Advocate 2012 Nina Lee Syrah Walla Walla Valley

Slightly more modern styled, yet still playing in the classical, balanced style of the estate, the 2012 Syrah Nina Lee is 100% Syrah (all from the estate vineyard in Walla Walla) that spent 21 months in 50% new French oak. It has ample dark fruit to go with notes of vanilla bean, scorched earth, underbrush and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and beautifully textured, you can drink it today, or cellar it for a decade. The style here is always classic, with textbook aromas and flavors in all the cuvees. In addition, they always excel on their balance and purity. 06/29/2015

93 points - The Wine Advocate 2012 Uriah Red Wine Walla Walla

Ruby and mostly opaque, the 2012 Uriah checks in as a blend of 48% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot and Malbec. It offers loads of red plum, spice-box, dried flowers and creamy licorice to go with a medium to full-bodied, pure, supple, elegant and nicely structured profile on the palate. The élevage here is 18 months in 55% new French oak, and the oak is beautifully integrated. It has a classical, balanced feel and I suspect it will age beautifully. Drink it anytime over the coming 10-15 years. The style here is always classic, with textbook aromas and flavors in all the cuvees. In addition, they always excel on their balance and purity. 06/29/2015
