Tasted several Gorman wines today and I thought they were all priced way wrong to the buyers benefit. This is $15 and is the best rose I can recall ever having. Multiple white fruits, cinnamon, and a tart finish. Best when it was just below room temperature. Guess the song that inspired the name for bonus points!!! — 3 days ago

Cooper Wine Company

Gatekeeper Bud's Blend Syrah Zinfandel 2014

Needs a good decant or some cellar time but I really enjoyed this. 40% Zin, 30% Syrah, 30% Tempranillo. Huge nose of black and red fruits, crushed red flowers, forest floor and spice. Great acidity to balance the weight and tannins. Cooper continues to kill it. — 22 days ago

La Côte Rousse Red Mountain Syrah 2014

The nose on this wine just doesn't quit. Floral notes, berries & cracked pepper to spare. The palate is wonderfully fresh & bright, yet brings the power & structure one expects from this producer and Red Mountain. Absolutely beautiful. — 5 days ago

@Shay Aldriedge - Their entire Rhone line is well worth looking into. The BDX-style stuff is no slouch, but their Rhones are just terrific. @David T

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Franc Blend 2013

Andrew Will wine tasting tonight at the storage facility. My knowledge and experience with WA state wines is small, so this was a great evening to learn and enjoy some very good wines.

Lots of dust and grittiness here. The nose is all fruit but the palate and finish is more savory. This is almost equal parts Merlot and cab franc. No green pepper. This needs a few years to really be properly enjoyed. I liked the potential of this wine more than any of the others.

2014 Vintage. A solid wine but a little flat lacking some body. Could use some more time in the bottle. Great price point. — 5 days ago

Cadence

Tapteil Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2004

Funk city. Beautiful red/brown color. Wine had barely gone up the cork. Hints of mineral and violets and lots of earthiness on the nose. So smooth on the palette. Darker fruit is balanced with some spices. Still a little kick on the backend of the palette. Lovely, lovely wine. — 8 days ago

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Collaboration Series Reserve Syrah 2011

Sugar plum, & sappy ripe blackberries coat the palate. Nose shows some savory notes. Kinda surprised at the sweet rich fruit in the cool vintage. Good stuff though. — 21 days ago
