Little Engine Wines

Gold Label Pinot Noir 2018

Everything at Little Engine seems like it's priced about $10 a bottle higher than local comparables, but that said, despite their pricing and somewhat snootier-than-necessary attitude throughout the organization, they have some interesting wines on offer. In the case of this Gold Label Pinot Noir, it's about depth of flavor and earthiness. Mushroom, dark-rich garden soil, blackberry, black plum, and some baking spiced swimming around in there. Quite nice. Everyone has their own Pinot style and it seems unnecessary to rank then Silver, Gold, and Platinum. This one's worth giving a try though. — 3 months ago

Rattlesnake Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2019

2019 Wits End Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. Made by Aussie in British Columbia that tastes like New Zealand.
Domenic is the wine maker...incredibly talented and a great guy to have a glass of wine with.
New Zealand nose with green bean, passion fruit and lime zest.
Crisp, crisp, crisp acidity with flavours of pea tips, gooseberry and citrus. We had grilled B.C. halibut and scallop sashimi with this wine.

Van Westen Vineyards

Voluptuous Merlot Cabernet Franc 2016

Black currant here with maybe a powderier and softer structure than I remember in other vintages. That said, this is such a great wine year after year. If you enjoy it, try getting your hands on their Vulture which is 100% Cab Franc for a similar expression without the merlot to mellow it. — 2 months ago
