Red Mountain, Columbia Valley

Hundred Suns

Elephant Mountain Vineyard Grenache 2017

Purple red, very good clarity, moderately extracted pigment. Spearmint, thyme and raspberry notes in nose. Raspberry, cola flavors, tangerine peel finish. Nice acidity, medium body, slight seed bitterness in aftertaste. Needs a little time to integrate after opening. Moderate skin astringency emerges after 30 minutes. 24 hours later, boom, cherry and plum flavors with depth. Super wine if you can decant it long enough, impressive varietal character — 13 days ago

Dead Horse Club GSM 2010

2010 wasn’t a great year but this wine is still quite good. And at 10 years I am also surprised by how much tannin it still has. Wet stone, prosciutto, ripe strawberry and hints of banana on the nose. On the palate, wonderful plum and ripe raspberry give way to touch of white pepper and hint of bacon one blueberry puree. — 13 days ago

Pretty strong tannins. Still good acidity 9 years in. Improved quite a bit after breathing. — 4 days ago

Col Solare

Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Stunning stuff! Fruit from Red Mountain delivers a deep and intense, yet pure and elegant, wine. Strong aromas of blackberry and ripe black cherry. On the palate, dense layers of cassis, black fruit, elegant spice, and cedar oak, all perfectly balanced. I really need to drink more Washington state cabernet. 2016 vintage on May 13, 2020 — 18 days ago

9.0

Interesting opening notes of white apparatus that’s a bit old, drizzled with honey. Just on the edge of tipping over to WTH but stays put on the good side. Balanced palate that’s sweet with varietal sense and medium finish that didn’t linger long. An interesting wine nevertheless. Went great with mooncake! 35%Brix 18% Residual sugar. (No notes on 2006 Riesling Chenin Blanc). — 4 days ago

Chenin Blanc 2017

Apricot, white peach and green apple finish on the palette. Off dry with a slightly acidic note that lingers. I’m loving Lauren Ashton’s whites and rose! Great bottle for summer nights on the porch. — 5 days ago

Quilceda Creek

Galitzine Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Mother’s choice on her day. This comes out hot. Hour and a half decant and the nose is more akin to whiskey than wine. Overt oak and the sting of alcohol. This is a young, young bad boy. The decant smoothed the tannins but the oak, alcohol, and unfocused extravagance will only mellow and integrate with time. — 24 days ago
