Schlossberg Grand Cru Riesling 2015

Nice Riesling, nice full texture, rich but not too much, acidity is backward, residual sugar feel is low, a bit of evolution though for such a young Riesling. 89-90

Beau Riesling un brin évolué pour son âge, une belle texture pleine et assez riche, acidité en retrait, pas de sensation de sucre résiduel trop élevée, belle longueur, très bien et content de ne pas avoir trop attendu cette bouteille.

La Brûlée Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Graduation Day for our son Christopher. Hereford High 2021. Next stop University of Maryland, College Park. We are super proud!!!

Bottle 1... Deep red-purple with beautiful, equally-spaced staining legs. Herbs and wild flowers dominate the nose, but tart red fruit--mainly sour strawberry--on the palate. Perfect round medium plus body, medium plus acidity--perhaps even high, medium delicate tannins and a very long finish. Alcohol is medium plus. Drinkable now... As I'm currently drinking it... Better in another couple-three years.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

This Wagner Family wine is definitely the “son of Caymus“ for half the price. Full bodied with flavors of plum and dark berries with hints of vanilla. A must for Caymus lovers! — 12 days ago

Sometimes your kids have something to teach you about booze! This CR Peach is really delicious with a little Coke Zero! Wasn't there some peach drink back in the 80's?? Relaxing with my son in Indiana! — a month ago

Sorella Horse Heaven Hills Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

I’m excited about this acclaimed Washington State Bordeaux blend from Andrew Will, named after the founder’s (Chris Camarda’s) nephew, Andrew, and son, Will (now winemaker).

Sorella is a single vineyard wine coming from the Champoux Vineyard, just five miles from the Columbia River, in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA of Columbia Valley, Washington. This particular wine was named Sorella – meaning sister in Italian – a tribute to the winemaker’s late sister when it was first produced in 1994.

It is comprised of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot.

This is a deep ruby wine.

On the nose it has medium(+) intensity of developing aromas. Aromas include baked blackberry, cassis, black cherry, also potpourri, licorice, green bell pepper, chervil, anise, black licorice, black pepper, clove, leather, earth, and sweet tobacco.

On the palate, this wine is dry. It has medium acidity, a medium(+) body, medium alcohol, medium(+) tannins, and medium intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. This wine has a medium(+) finish.

Andrew Will, Sorella, Champoux Vineyard, Horse Heaven Hills, Washington. Vintage 2011. ABV 13%.
