Nightshade Columbia Valley Nebbiolo 2015

Rose and Rosemary nose marry!
Light delicate floral side of Nebbiolo. Pale purple petal notes. Bright acidity. As if a rosey grape adult Jell-O shot melted into your mouth and asked for a date with a caprese salad and pasta pomodoro. That would pair deliciously!

Ursa Merlot Blend 2009

14.5% ALC, with clinical/distinct WA terroir profile. CF-led @ 44%, Merlot 38%, CS at 9%, Malbec 9%…. Deep, hefty mocha / dark cocao drive this punch in the face. Even at 11yrs old, this brought game! Great on day 1, softens a bit on D2, but then a bit port-y of day 4…which was fine ;) — a day ago

United Ink Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

This Washington Cab sits medium dark in the glass and has a fairly closed nose at first. It opens up to black fruit and savory oak - not sweet - after some time. The mouthfeel seems rather thin to me, with gentle tannins. Overall, it comes on more like a Pinot Noir than a Cabernet, but there is enough blackberry and plum to convince me that it’s real. Unexpected, but not completely out in left field. — 13 days ago

I'm afraid I don't get the reference, David. I feel there must be a laugh in there somewhere, but it eludes me!

Fleur de Roy Rosé of Pinot Noir 2019

Unscrew and pour. Had a bottle of this a few months ago, and forgot to post a note. A very solid rose of PN (made by Alexandrine Roy of Gevrey-Chambertin, but now also OR). On the nose: soft smoke, cramberry. wild strawberry. On the palate: light and lively with excellent acidity and density for the warm weather. Excellent btl, esp for the price. — 19 days ago

United Ink Columbia Valley Red Blend 2019

Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is medium dark in the glass and smells like dark fruit, somewhat jammy and somewhat oaky, but not in a bad way. The vanilla and clove notes have a trace of smoke and sage peeking through. The palate shows black and blue berries mainly, with a minty herbal edge on the side. The tannins are firm and the finish is medium long. I'll pair this with something off the grill, although I may want to try a chill on it if I have it outside. — 15 days ago

Here's a nice everyday wine from Washington State. Showing black fruits with light oak, vanilla, licorice, spice, tobacco, chocolates, lights metals and peppercorn.
