Heron Lake Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019

It’s good but lacks depth. Let it rest and drink over the next 12 months. Low 12.6%. 1800 bottles made. Raspberry light - Beaujolais like great winemaker jet I am not convinced. — 3 days ago

Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Nice wine. Definitely bring it up to room temp. Took a bit to come in to its own but once it did, wow. Wasn’t my husband’s favorite but I really liked it. — 20 days ago

Dark Horse Distillery

Special Release Barrel Strength Rye Whiskey

Batch prior to the January 2016 name change to Union Horse. Citrus notes and a spicy finish. A little hot on its own, but it makes a great cocktail (tonight was a Red Hook - riff on a Manhattan). — 13 days ago

Reserve Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2010


This 10 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State is a nice surprise. Doesn't show its age at all, at this point.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate and good with food.

After a couple of hours of airtime it shows, red and black fruits with earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, bell pepper, vegetables, herbs, graphite and black coffee.

Nice finish with round tannins and tangy pomegranates.

Wine Enthusiasts 87 Points.

A little off balance, but has nice structure with a nice mouthfeel.

I've had it before, but at a younger age. Now it feels like a California Merlot, actually. Very interesting to try these kind of wines.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Aged in French oak barrels (30% new).

13.9% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

This is such a bargain. $8.99 at Fred Meyer and just a classic Chardonnay. Nothing complicated but well-balanced and great with food. — 7 days ago

Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Pop and pour. On the nose: clove, cinnamon, muddled strawberry, blackberries and sugar. On the palate: at first, ok acidity, and not so well-delineated flavors; burnt sugar, then acidity picks up, and the palate is clearer: blackberry and blueberry, clove, and then a wall of finely grained tannin..the finish is a little too staccato, but good energy after the wall of tannin fades a bit, and good length. Still, very tasty! — a month ago
