Grand Rêve Vintners / Force Majeure

Parabellum Red Mountain Red Blend 2018

You can count on this wine to solidly deliver, especially at its price point. Personally, I like it to open up a bit. Perfect accompaniment with a charcuterie board. — 2 months ago

If your sheltering in place, this is the wine to have. A simply delicious, chewy earthy dark cab. — 7 months ago

Monthly WTF wine group meet up. No true theme this month. Some wines tasted blind.

Tasted blind. Pretty bouquet of potpourri, black cherry, herbs, sweet tar, and ripe fresh squeezed blackberries. Very soft and plush on the palate...sweet red and black fruit to the core with violet and dark chocolate. Excellent! I called this merlot. My WOTN.

I like their wines a lot

Grand Rêve Vintners / Force Majeure

Collaboration Series Force Majeure Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

This is a blockbuster of a wine that still needs more time. Nose of cedar & dark fruit, mouthfeel still quite young and fruit still imprisoned by immense structure.
Interesting notes, since some reviewers describe it as Cab/ Syrah blend, and some straight Syrah; my thoughts is those bottles might have had a higher alcohol content and the reviewers were betrayed by a les-than-perfect identification algorithm, or were in their cups by the time they decided to post a review. Great wine nonetheless!

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Collaboration Series IV Red Blend

A lovely dark chewy wine. I always enjoy Force Majure wines. I’m not a big wine /food paring person. This wine calls out for food. Meat!! — a year ago

Collaboration Series Ciel du Cheval Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon. Great nose. Intense, rich bark berry fruit. Well worth the wait, but would be great for many more years to come! — 3 years ago

Collaboration Majeure Vineyard Series Grenache

More air would have done this wine justice. Regardless, started funky, closed down, then began to open with peppery blue fruits and a nice mouth feel, very good wine would like to see what more decant time would do — 4 years ago

Force Majeure Vineyard Syrah 2012

Very nice and elegant Syrah from Washington. 97+ RP, maybe needs some air to reach that level but a clear 95 PZ score for now. Tasting this blind (which I did not do) I would not have guessed new world. — 4 months ago

I’d personally give PZ’s score the slight edge

Force Majeure Vineyard Viognier 2017

Really focused wine, more of a citrusy style, great minerality, lean and piercing on the pallet, balanced with an impressively long finish. Interesting with our dim sum feast. — 2 years ago
