Ok, are we all ready for a great weekend? I think i am starting the weekend off on the right note. Tonight I have opened the 2017 Luke Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Wahluke Slope. This is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. For the price this wine makes a great buy.
On the nose there is cherry, raspberry, blueberry, black cherry, black currant, graphite, sweet tobacco, violet and earth.
On the palate I am getting black cherry, blackberry, plum, black currant, licorice, black pepper, chocolate and earth.
This is a full bodied wine that is nicely complex with medium + acidity and medium + round sandy tannins that moves wonderfully into a long clean dark fruit finish. I wish everyone a wonderful weekend ahead and please stay healthy and safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 8 days ago
Sineann old vine Zinfandel, 2016. This is Columbia Valley Oregon. Zinfandel is a pretty difficult wine to make but these guys have it down!!!!!!! This is perhaps the best Zinn I’ve tasted in a long time. You can actually taste the pepper in the spice right from the get go. You can also taste the flavor of the Zinfandel grape as well right on the front of the pallet. It’s almost sweet but it’s nowhere near sugar sweet. There’s blueberry boysenberry blackberry even some raspberry in there. Loads of black pepper white pepper cigarbox graphite. The finish gives my palate a wonderful tingle. And I will definitely buy a lot more of this while it’s this good!!!! You should too!￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼ — 2 days ago

Sangiovese Rosé, Colombia Valley. Salmon pink with a cherry red tinge, excellent clarity. Cherry cobbler aroma on nose. Cherry and raspberry Kool Aid flavors. Slightly chalky mineral finish, maybe lactic too, mild skin astringency on finish. Blessedly dry. Acid is all right, body is ok or a touch thin in mouthfeel, a minor issue. Great varietal character. Good value — 10 days ago
66/18/16 blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon blanc and muscadelle. Still assessing but love the length of fruit flavors (apple, peach-apricot, lemon with a touch of grassiness), dryness and acidity on this. Slightly bitter and mineral finish. Well balanced, perfect with my fresh garden beefsteak tomato and mild Hatch Chile salsa pizza (yeah, it should be a hotter Hatch, but you work with what you got). WA state does well with the Sauv-Sém blends and this one is on point for structure and varietal expression. Just crisp enough to work — 3 days ago
