Rediviva of the Stones Syrah Blend 2015

I’ll have to look at my prior notes of this wine, but this strikes me as far more acid-driven than the last bottle I had. Nose show red fruits, crushed rock, and smellable acidity. Lean, crisp, but intense. Like a real hybrid of Walla Walla and a Northern Rhone from an older days cooler vintage. It’s got good length and mouthwatering acids. A Syrah- based wine to have with some meat dish in a sauce, as opposed to a simple grilled or roasted meat. — 2 months ago

Columbia Valley Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc-Muscadelle Blend 2009

Superb nose with waxy pear and gala apple fruit that is accented by a hint of honey. The wine has dynamite texture with richness that is checked by bright acidity. Finishes with pear and orange peel fruit tones with real length. — 5 years ago

Peter Canlis Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2009

Needs to warm up from cellar temp. When it does, I get big smoky blackberry, black olive, and a touch of barnyard to add interest. I only got a taste the last time Nina opened one of these. Big thanks to Nina for a bottle of my own. — 6 years ago

Rockgarden Estate Walla Walla Valley Mourvèdre Blend 2014

75/20/5 MGS blend. Purple-red, moderately extracted pigment, very good clarity. Black currant, strawberry, menthol and funk notes in nose. Cherry skin with strawberry jam and raspberry jam flavors, saline minerality and seed tannin finish with cranberry, black olive and menthol flavors, moderate skin astringency in aftertaste. Needs time to open. This is something special, worth savoring over several hours — 2 years ago

Rediviva of the Stones Rockgarden Estate Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Nicely structured and balanced and a lot lighter than most Syrahs. Nonetheless, I like it for what it is. — 6 years ago

Caballo Blanco Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc Merlot 2006

Buty was delicious. It has aged well and grape blend is one complex wine. I will buy again — a year ago

Rosé of the Stones 2018

Rockgarden Estate, 68/32 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre. Salmon pink with an orange tinge. Strawberry note in nose, raspberry flavor that fades followed by a slight green melon (honeydew) and strawberry flavor with length, moderate skin astringency with a mineral finish. More savory and structured than many will be used to. For me, though, this is a special, very dry and not-fruit-forward rosé (though that subtle strawberry and honeydew flavor lingers). Good fermentation character without super high acidity, and delicious. — 2 years ago
