Columbia Gorge Pinot Gris 2014

Second and last bottle of vintage, retasting. As the variety goes, a winner... Good acidity, flavors. One of the better American Pinot Gris wines I’ve had — 20 hours ago

Lagniappe Columbia Valley Syrah 2012

I really want to like this wine...it’s just flat. Watery and lacks anything that gives verve and edge. Not sure this has much life left. — 4 days ago

L'Ecole No. 41

Stillwater Creek Vineyard Sémillon 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

This pungent, pristine Sémillon entices with scents of lemon curd and orange blossom. Dense and lively on the palate, it conveys a subtle touch of honeyed sweetness to its juicy flavors of citrus peel, white stone fruits, flowers and minerals. The palate-dusting finish is long and alive. $21.00 (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, October 2019) — 3 days ago

Lot 638 Yakima Valley Petit Verdot 2016

This inky Washington wine smells like plums and vanilla with a lacing of leather. The palate is deep and complex, full of dark fruit - plums, blackberries - and spices, herbs and anise. The tannins are firm enough, but not overpowering. It’s a great wine for a roast or just for sipping.

Vinous Obscura

Apini Columbia Gorge Fiano Sémillon 2018

So so good. Wax, dry honey, tropical and stone fruit, and great underripe acidity. Like a Rhone white turned up to 11. This is truly an eye opener of intensity and complexity. Right after opening, it tasted like a wine in reverse, starting with herbs and building to fruit, but it opened into something that synched up super well. — 24 days ago

Á Bloc Malbec 2015

Dense purple red, highly extracted pigment, some sediment in suspension. Butter, purple fruit and flowers in nose, blackberry, thyme, sage, slight cigar box. Velvety blackberry texture and flavor in mouth, slightly bitter and alcoholic on finish initially. After 30 minutes, chewy tar finish emerges with moderate astringency and a touch of menthol. A serious robust wine, but that Washington State fruit flavors and herbal nose sneak through. 106 cases produced — 3 days ago

Pirouette Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

The 2016 ‘Piroette’ Red Wine is a stunning new release by superstar winemaker Phillipe Melka. A blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (68%) with smaller portions Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, the wine was aged for 22 months in 75% new French oak prior to bottling. Showing off its inky core this opens with a bouquet of green bell pepper, mocha, tar and anise that all come together in the glass. The silky texture creates gorgeous appeal, delivering blackberry cobbler, espresso bean and shades of blueberry pie with lovely herbal undertones. Highly structured, with soft tannins, this stunning effort will cellar well for decades. Drink 2020-2038- 95 — 20 days ago
