This 100% Syrah is named for the wife of Frederick Corkrum. Following the tradition of Uriah, Katherine, Frederick, and Nina Lee Corkrum, Shari Corkrum Derby and her husband Dean Derby continue to operate the wheat fields, vineyard, and winery.


WS 93 WA 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Vibrant and focused, this is generous with its fresh, juicy plum, blueberry and spice flavors, with a hint of peppery bacon on the long, vivid finish. Drink now through 2017. 950 cases made.


According to Wine Advocate - 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.


According to Wine Enthusiast - A significant expansion 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.


Tasting Notes - 2009 marks another intense vintage of our Nina Lee Syrah, which offers a nose of bright, candied violet and huge yet still fresh and fruity flavors of concentrated blackberry and cocoa. Highly structured and packed with rich tannins, this is a wine to drink now or cellar for future enjoyment. Rated 90+
