The Boy Grenache 2018

Almost overwhelmingly mineral, displaying the smoky campfire embers and rich loamy scents I associate with Walla Walla, along with sandalwood and very sappy cherry-ooze fruit. Dark and minerally on the palate: very low-toned flavors fill the mouth. Fair amount of medium-soft tannin, and a very long, low acid finish that has an echo of port-like fruit and the very tail end. Very complex and idiosyncratic wine. — 8 days ago

Sounds interesting

Cailloux Vineyard Syrah 2013

Raspberry, stems, coffee, hung meat, asian spice, orange peel, tapenade, blood and stones. Feral, wild, moderate frame and earthy with a freshness to it. As always a layered and lengthy wine that evolved gloriously over dinner. The firm tannin profile and amount of perfume gave this a distinctive old school feel. — 14 days ago

Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Franc 2017

Beautiful cab franc from Walla Walla grapes. Distinct and different than any Chinon or other Loire Valley that I can remember. Solid fruit and not over extracted. Nice lengthy finish with sturdy acidity. Not soft. Recommended! — 10 days ago

The Given Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

64% Syrah, 36% Cab. Classic Walla Walla nose of smoky embers and dark, low-toned pure berry fruit. Little iodine minerally thing. Broad and textured in the mouth, good acid/tannin balance. Flavors are dark, minerally, and savory. I love the concept of all proceeds going to help the hard-working vineyard and agricultural workers who labor in the area obtain healthcare. — 20 days ago

Roma River Rock Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2017

Quick note from a charity dinner event. 5th bottle.
We drank this bottle last thinking that this would be the richest and most powerful of the bunch. Not so. Medium to full body tilted towards the medium side. Gentle and smooth. Complex aroma and flavors, showing the 20% Syrah’s peppery and meaty side really well. Seamless from start to finish. Certainly benefited from longer air time.
My favorite of the night.

Armada Vineyard Syrah 2010

2022 Wine Tasting!! They were very close in ratings but here is how I think they shook out:

1) Clos Du Val
2) Arietta
3) Vino Cobos
4) Chateau Monbosquet
5) Cayuse Syrah Armada

Super fun afternoon!!

Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

Drinking well now but could go longer. However, I don’t feel it will improve. If anything more secondary notes. — 20 days ago
