Interlude Red Blend 2014

It’s got the sooty, fire pit minerality that announces Walla Walla, along with sweet dark cherry and blackberry fruit and some sweet baking spice. Mouthfilling and rich, with ripe dark berry fruit augmented by savory notes. Loads of tacky tannin but fairly low acids indicate that this is probably for drinking over the next few years. — 7 days ago

I’m down to my last bottle of a case I bought several years ago from garagiste and feel bereft already.

John Bookwalter Winery

Conflict Conner-Lee Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

The ‘Conflict’ is a melange of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with 48% Merlot and a dash of Malbec. Ripe red fruits dance with shades of anise and herbal undertones that take form in the glass. The palate has good freshness and minerality with medium-bodied red and dark fruit flavors, with a touch of milk chocolate. Drink 2019-2029- 91 — a day ago

DeLille Cellars

Chaleur Blanc 2015

Nose has delicate yellow fruits, a waxy lanolin Semillon thing, and some toasty oak. Dark and low toned in the mouth — almost like a red— but very persistent and nicely balanced. Needs a delicate fish dish as a counterpoint to shine. (Not great with turkey.) — 7 days ago

Pedestal Columbia Valley Merlot 2006

The 2006 ‘Pedestal’ is a sinfully good warm vintage Merlot by superstar enological consultant Michel Rolland that is drinking marvelously at now thirteen years of age. Following a long decant, the Merlot slowly unveils ripe black currants that combine with sandalwood, cigar ash and Turkish coffee aromatics that meld together in the glass. The palate has tremendous freshness and verve considering its age, as this silky wine effortlessly glide across the mid-palate. Still showing serious power and concentration, the ‘Pedestal’ leads with a deep core of dark fruits that mingle with suggestions of milk chocolate, pipe tobacco, leather and anise flavors that sing in harmony. Fantastic now, this beautiful wine has at least another decade of life left. Drink 2019-2028- 94 — 10 days ago

Dunham Cellars

XIV Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2016 ‘Columbia Valley’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful new effort from this warm vintage in Washington. The nose shows off rich blackberry pie, Turkish coffee and sagebrush aromas that meld in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced, showing ripe red cherry, blueberry compote, coffee grounds and suggestions of black tea and exotic spices. This just might be the first ‘Columbia Valley’ Cabernet Sauvignon wines by Dunham out of roughly fifteen where I have found blue fruits. Nonetheless, this is delicious wine that is drinking marvelously now and will cellar well for at least another ten to fifteen years. Drink 2019-2033- 93 — 13 days ago
