Columbia Valley Old Vine Chenin Blanc 2022

380 cases, new vintage. Light yellow, excellent clarity. Not much aroma, floral and orchard fruit, perhaps, but great flavor length - peach, apple, citrus with a mineral finish. Some viscosity, rounded mouthfeel with light skin astringency frisson, ooh. It has what an old vine Chenin Blanc should have: complexity and character. Very fresh and lively, good acidity and flavor. — 3 months ago

Stillwater Creek Vineyard Shard Chardonnay 2019

Erica Orr has quietly been making one of the great stainless steel Chardonnays in Washington State. Showing unripe pear and melon tones on the nose with shades of baking spice, the palate has great freshness and texture with a silky mouthfeel that entices. With excellent length, I would not have taken this for an unoaked Chardonnay. Enjoy this in the short-term while the wonderful brightness remains. Drink 2020-2025 — 4 years ago

Royal Slope Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Funds to farm workers, grapes from concerned vineyards. Erica Orr is the best. Solid Bordeaux style table red. Tasting notes lost in the cloud, alas — 10 months ago

Columbia Valley Grenache 2020

Royal Slope Grenache, 152 cases made. Excellent clarity, garnet red, light to moderate pigment extraction. Tangerine and wood aromas, cherry flavor with cherry cough drop, wood and tangerine finish. Good acidity and balance, flavorful, though there’s a solid seed tannin backbone on the finish. Consider aging this one or decanting a few hours. A serious take on this varietal, worth seeking out. — 2 years ago

Royal Slope Grenache

14.6% alc/vol, 152 cases made by a young female winemaker, UC Davis grad. Go Aggies! Ruby red, excellent clarity, moderate pigment extraction. Cherry and black currant in the nose, cherry in the mouth initially. Mild skin astringency in finish. Decanting. After 30 minutes, a tart plum and slightly phenolic cherry cough syrup flavor emerge in the finish with hints of mint, eucalyptus and tangerine, accompanied by light floral aromas, and maybe even a hint of rosehip. After an hour, a light raspberry flavor emerges. A tough wine to analyze after pouring, as this vintage is different from the previous vintages though, granted, these may be new vineyards or perhaps just my first exposure to this AVA. Haven’t decided what I think of this wine yet, but definitely something new and challenging for me. — a year ago

Columbia Valley Grenache 2017

Revisiting vintage. Lightly to moderately extracted pigment, purple red in color, excellent clarity, Butter, vanilla notes in nose with a hint of mint. Soft, cherry peel with a hint of tangerine peel, light to moderate skin astringency on finish. Really well crafted, lovely flavor profile, on point varietally. — 4 years ago
