So refreshing and dry at the same time! — 18 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 — 3 days ago
Incredible PNW Chardonnay — a month ago
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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 16 hours ago
