Rulo Syrca Walla Walla Valley 2006

Monday, May 18, 2009

Rulo Winery is a Walla Walla area producer. The winery is solely owned by Kurt and Vicki Schlicker and has no investors or distributors. Just last week Rulo replaced their long-standing placeholder website with a real one. All of this helps Rulo keep their costs low while making great wine. To wit, the 2006 Syrca, a Syrah/Cabernet blend hence the name, is an extremely good wine for the price.







Rulo Syrca Walla Walla Valley 2006

Bright, piquant red fruit and wet stone aromas on a pretty, Rhone-style nose. A whiff of barnyard, smoke, and candied fruit rounds it out. Lots of fruit on the palate and a pleasing texture. The finish is all that holds this wine back. An excellent value. 70% Syrah; 30% Cabernet. 14.3% alcohol. Recommended.

Purchased at Pete’s Bellevue for $16.79
