Gamache Vintners

Nicolas Red Blend 2009

Blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 13% Merlot, sourced from the Gamache and Champoux vineyards. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, floral and pronounced cigar box spice, aged in 100% new French oak. On the palate flavors of ripe raspberry and blackberry with cedar and spice. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, oak and spice. Drink now, no further aging benefit! — 5 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 — 24 days ago

Mullan Road Cellars

Columbia Valley Red Blend 2013

Very deep Ruby red, with aromas of dark fruit and sweet spice. On the palate, the blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, shows ripe dark fruit, blackberries and plums with a touch of oak, smoke and toast. The wine spent 16 months in 40% new French and American oak. Full-bodied, nice balance with integrated tannins. Tasting well now. — 3 days ago

Chasing Rain

Red Mountain Merlot 2018

An unusual partnership between oak/vanilla (sweet) and bitterness >in a good way. Interesting wine! 85% Merlot 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged 19 months in American and French oak. There is an oak/ vanilla sweetness with great fruity berries on the front & midpalate which transitions to a cocoa powder, black licorice, anise bitterness to a long finish. Very smooth, Medium+ bodied. Fun to decipher! My Costco..$10! We went through gas line 1st...loving this! — a month ago
