Canoe Ridge Vineyard

The Explorer Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Picked this bottle up at Costco and was intrigued by the year and price. I’ve always enjoyed PNW wines, so why not? The cork had a vinegar odor and I was afraid it had already turned, but poured a nice glass anyway; much better bouquet but light and a touch sour. On the palate, a delightful cab bursting with unexpected flavors cranberry, tart cherry, and a hint of white chocolate. Not as big a red is normally gravitate to but definitely a great value. — 25 days ago

Lobo Hills

Yakima Valley Merlot Rosé 2020

Small local producer. Rosé wines from Merlot aren’t typical here in the PNW. Dusky orange, excellent clarity. Label notes it was aged on lees, with aromas of “strawberries, peaches and melons” with “flavors of cherries, raspberries, strawberries and black pepper” For me, strawberry seed and melon aromas with flavors of cola and black pepper, surprise. Almost dry, rounded mouthfeel, defined skin astringency on finish, not excessive but present alongside some mineral and leesy character. Worth seeking out — 21 days ago
