Reininger

Helix Phinny Hill Vineyard Syrah 2015

Beautiful dark fruit with spicy aromatics. Good power, but has some fresh acid hiding behind all that fruit. Moderate tannins, excellent for Monday night. — 3 days ago

Den Hoed

Wallula Vineyard Marie's View Red Blend 2011

Green pepper, slate, hazelnut. What a wicked nose!
I would associate this with South American, not a Washington state wine.
Hefty body, super viscous, mint, gravel, licorice. White pepper comes with every exhale, and the wood is balanced well with the acid. An really nice wine.

COR Cellars

Alder Ridge Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2015

Dense purple, highly extracted pigment. White pepper, violet, butter, blackberry and black currant notes in nose. Blackberry and coffee flavors, rounded mouthfeel, slight skin astringency and white pepper on finish, minerality throughout. Light bodied, fruity, and approachable, excellent varietal character. Slightly oily, nutty aftertaste emerges after an hour - almond? Barrel wood? A nice touch, but still a solid base wine without it. — 23 days ago

Horsepower Vineyards

Sur Echalas Vineyard Grenache

The 2013 ‘Sur Echalas Vineyard’ Grenache is simply captivating now at the six year mark. An aromatic melange of teaberry with wet stone, pomegranate seed, Umami and iodine greet you, showing some thrilling range right upon opening. The palate shows off its silky texture that gently glides across the mid-palate. Ripe red fruits dance with shades of blood orange zest, cigar ash,, damp earth and stony tones that all collect momentum on the palate. Thrilling at this stage in its development, the 2013 Horsepower ‘Sur Exhalas Vineyard’ Grenache will provide drinking enjoyment for at least another seven to ten years.
