The highly anticipated second edition of MTR Productions was just released by Matt and Lauren Reynvaan. MTR Productions is the exciting new venture created by Matt and Lauren Reynvaan. The wine shows marvelously what an aged wine from the Walla Walla Rocks AVA can do in the right hands. To my knowledge this is the first wine from this AVA that has seen such extensive barrel and bottle aging.
The 2013 ‘Memory Found’ is comprised of 100% Syrah from the warm 2013 vintage. Only 150 cases are made of this special wine. The wine saw extensive aging in neutral French oak and 600L oak puncheons and then saw 36 months of bottle age. Just like their previous wine, I absolutely adore this new wine by one of the great talents in Washington wine, Matt Reynvaan. The Syrah shows insanely good texture, range, salinity and stony terroir. The stony aspect in the wine is more subtle as the savory notes and citrus components evoke wonderful mouth-watering acidity. Simply put, this is a stunning new release that is not to be missed.

2013 MTR Productions ‘Memory Found’ Syrah- The 2013 ‘Memory Found’ by superstar winemaker, Matt Reynvaan, is a head-turning and seductive new release Syrah. On the nose this shows massive range from Hoisin sauce to peat moss to wet stone and citrus rind to brandied dark cherry. Despite its age and obvious heat of the vintage, the palate is lithe and youthful, showing a wonderful tension and purity of fruit. Pipe tobacco, chocolate covered dark cherry, roasted fig, wet stone and blood orange zest with Umami flavors all marvelously combine. The salinity of the wine also adds to the discussion. Lithe, rich and showing insanely good range, this is a stunner that is best enjoyed within the next five to ten years. Drink 2018-2028- 96
