How could I forget the Nina Lee! Not only is this another example of a fine Syrah from the Walla Walla area, but even the label is sexy!
A relative of the Corkrum's Spring Valley family, Nina Lee was a vaudeville actress at one of the local theatres in the 1920's. She married into the Corkrum family and after her husband Frederick died, she continued to manage the family ranch on her own.
This is a very HUGE Syrah, unlike the woman that it was named after! Lots of cocoa and bramble berries coming through. My notes remembered it being a very earthy and spicy wine. Now that I have teased you, good luck finding it. The current vintage is sold out!
