Columbia Valley Dry Rosé Blend 2021

New summer, new vintage to try. Pale salmon pink, excellent clarity. Nectarine note in nose, even when well chilled. Floral, nectarine and lemon flavors, blessedly dry, mineral finish with a touch of skin astringency. Love this wine! — 15 days ago

Stoneridge Vineyard Syrah 2014

Big surprise! The scent was floral, violets and perhaps some green herbs. But the first sip… straight pipe tobacco laced by dark blue berry and unripe fig. Where was that jammyness we noticed a few years ago? It drank quite addictive, though. Complex and intriguing. — 3 days ago

Indian Wells Columbia Valley Merlot 2016

It is time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.

This 6 year old Merlot from Washington State is still drinking very nicely.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish /brick rim.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with nice complexity, and soft tannins on the finish.

Showing blackberries, tobacco, chocolates, coffee, black pepper, dates, earth, cooked plums, raisins, figs and herbs.

Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime.

Good by itself as a sipping wine. Very tasty and affordable. A good party wine too.

A blend of Merlot with a touch of Syrah.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Corliss Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

This is the 2008 Corliss Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon we had on a special occasion with close friends. This is from Walla Walla, Washington made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, licorice, smokey campfire, vanilla, leather, black pepper, cocoa and dark earth.

On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, spice, licorice, leather, violets, coffee, graphite and dark rich earth.

This wine is full bodied and well balanced with a silky smooth mouthfeel medium + to high acidity and medium + fine supple tannins that moves seamlessly into a long dark fruit graphite finish. An outstanding wine at 14 years of age and has many years to continue to develop. Have a great weekend and please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷

Callisto Red 2017

Beautiful Syrah-dominant red blend from WA. Lots of ripe dark fruit but followed by multiple layers and depth. Beautifully made. Syrah 42/cab sauv 29/petit Verdot 29. The PV is evident in the body and deep fruit structure. Drinking deliciously now, but would likely be even better w some age. — 18 days ago
