Corliss Columbia Valley Red Blend 2013

Good. Dense. Giving a bit of fruit. Still fairly tight. Think it needs some air. Overall - really smooth and good tannins. — 3 months ago

On the nose, floral, slightly candied fruits of; blackberries, black plum, dark cherries, strawberries, dry herbs, incense, anise, rich dark moist soil, vanilla and violets for days. The body is M with M+ tannins. Fruits are; blackberries, black plum, dark cherries & black raspberries. Black cherry cola/licorice, figs, black tea, soft leather, spice, cigar, sage, dry crushed rocks, nice big fresh acidity and leaner, fresh fruit driven finish. Photos of; a tight shot of their vineyard grapes, Andrew Trio (Winemaker) and the dogs, Michael & Lauri Corliss (Owners) and night shot of the winery. Producer history and notes...Tranche translated from French means slice. The term is also used in Bordeaux futures. If you want to buy futures and you believe the price will increase, you want to buy in the first tranche or price offering. Negociants or resellers offer futures in tranches...tranche 1, tranche 2 and so on...each tranche going forward more expensive than the previous. Tranche works to style their wines based on the Rhône Valley. The winery is owned by Micheal & Lauri Corliss. I spent an hour with their Winemaker Andrew Trio. Andrew was born in Perth, Australia. He began his winemaking career in the Margaret River region. Andrew went to the University of Adelaide, South Australia, where he studied Oenology. After working harvests down under, he moved on to California, Mosel and Barossa before becoming Tranche's Winemaker. Tranche doesn't crimp on expenses. Micheal & Lauri give Andrew all the modern winery tools needed to push quality. They installed new concrete tanks last year and were just installing an additional 8-10 stainless tanks during our visit. As you see from the photos, their property is beautiful. — 4 years ago

A second tier wine from the esteemed Corliss Estates in Walla Walla this wine was suggested by my wine consultant. She said "forget the funky label this stuff is really good." was she right. It has a medium to full body, firm tannins with hints of black berries, cigar box and dark chocolate. On the 4th of July how can I taste anything but a big American red. Happy 4th to all my American friends from BC. Enjoy 🇺🇸 — 5 years ago
