Ah, the Rocks at Milton-Freewater produce such remarkable and distinctive fruit. Morgan Lee’s take on the Stoney Vine Syrah is outstanding. Earthy, gamey, succulent, dark and full stone fruit (plum) that just keeps going. This is good for another 5 years I think. — 3 years ago

This bottle of Chateau Cissac from the Haut Medoc region of Bordeaux is excellent. I think this is my first true dive into the Bordeaux appellation. This wine was highly recommended from the folks at Craft and Cru in Milton. This is a true well-balanced drink with a smoked cedar flavor, complimenting the richness of blueberry and plum flavors. This bottle of Bordeaux is rich and has a great finish that lingers well after each sip. — 7 months ago
Masterclass with in San Francisco with Saskia De Rothschild, Chairwoman DBR Lafite. Duhart-Milton is another property the Rothschild’s own.
The nose shows, bright, ripe, candied fruits with pleasant, bright florals. Blackberries, dark cherries, blue fruits, strawberries & pomegranate. Tobacco notes, leather, dry brush, limestone, crushed dry rocks, beautiful red, dark fresh florals with violets.
The body is full and shows the strength of the 15 vintage but, this is one should not be enjoyed at least for 10-15 years. Tannins are fine and firm. Ripe and slightly candied fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, blue fruits, strawberries & pomegranate. Tobacco notes, leather, dry brush, limestone, crushed dry rocks, dry river stones, black dry earth, cedar, graphite, beautiful red, dark fresh florals with violets. The acidity is really good. The structure, tension, length and balance are good now but, show greater promise down the road. The finish is very good, well balanced, elegant and persists minutes.
All wines arrived weeks ago directly from the Chateau.

Best pinot I have had for some time. So much energy and grip. Lacy but also concentrated. Sweet red cherry, then darker fruit and wood spice in the mid palate. Shroud of acid and super fine tannin bringing everything together. As though the pure pinot flavours are being sucked into every tastebud. Combination of acid and tannin deliver the ultimate platform for the pure fruit flavour to zing.. 5-10 years? This will be killer. — 10 months ago
Happy #winewednesday everyone! Since it’s #wawinemonth we decided to crack open this 2011 Cayuse Syrah from the Cailloux Vineyard.
2011 Cayuse Syrah Cailloux Vineyard
The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater, Walla Walla Valley, Columbia Valley, Oregon, United States of America
Beautiful Syrah which in 2011 was co-fermented with 5% Viognier from the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater in Oregon. Medium ruby red with some garnet hues. Layered nose with purple flowers, light baking spices, crushed rocks, raspberries and a bit savory. Medium plus tannins (7/10) and medium plus body. Love the funk and iron on the palate followed up by some red berries, smoked earth and white pepper. Long finish. Drink till 2025.
