Impulsivo Walla Walla Valley Tempranillo 2011

Now for the real Tempranillo, my first from Cayuse. Finally found some at a proper price.
This is some funky juice, has that same nose as their Syrah. Almost as great as the Tempranillo from Force Majeure
$95.00 per on a 3 pack
If you don’t like this then you need to stick to Paso, this is full on Washington.

@Joseph Barsky Washington Tempranillo is a different beast compared to Paso.
I thought Epoch was really good from Paso though. But its like comparing a Merlot to a Big Beckstoffer Cabernet. Two completely different wines

Stoney Vine Vineyard Red Blend 2014

Yup, still one of my favorite blends. Just enough funk from SV vineyard. Delicious with food. — a day ago

Armada Vineyard Syrah 2015

Really delicious. Raspberry and black fruits. Velvety structure but certainly not heavy. Very good Syrah from Washington State. — 15 days ago

In the Rocks Syrah 2012

9.4

This was my contribution. I’ve been fortunate to try quite a few different offerings from this vintage from Reynvaan and this is the most funk driven I’ve come across (as expected for the fruit source). Up front there is a lot of bacon fat, Olive tapenade, peppered teriyaki beef jerky and underripe blackberries on the nose...typical Rocks funk. On the palate, NRhone like with the lightness while retaining power. Cracked black pepper, blue fruit, bay leaf, iron and tangy red fruit finish. Nice acidity. More iron as it opens. Benefits from food as the savory-ness begs for a compliment to cut through it. Very nice example of Rhône style Syrah from Walla Walla. — 8 days ago

Morrison Lane Syrah 2006

Big rich and bold (as expected). Huge nose. Balanced yet Explodes on the palate with a bouquet of sweet black fruit. This can last a few more years. — 5 days ago

Powerline Estate Syrah 2014

Very strong peppercorn. And stewed violets. Nailed it with Thanksgiving turkey. After decades of multigenerational exhaustive research... earthy domestic Rhône blends are the way to go on Thanksgiving! — 13 days ago

Rediviva of the Stones Syrah Blend 2014

A relatively delicate take on Walla Walla Syrah. Nose has herb-tinged sweet, tangy red fruit, clean river stones, and a sweet cured meat note. So soft-textured in the mouth. Initially very cracked-stone minerally but then, on the extended finish, the fruit comes through. Very distinctive. — 6 days ago

Walla Walla Valley Merlot 2016

Another one for a “night after” Friendsgiving with turkey & dumpling soup. One of the most underrated wines in Washington state. When you hear people say “Washington Merlot is different”, this is the place to discover it. Nose is wonderfully complex with bing cherry & red currants along with an herbal, almost minty streak. The palate follows with more red fruit and some spicy oak notes which add complexity, but never overwhelm the wine. Excellent. — 13 days ago

Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Medium purple hue, ruby rim variation. Medium / heavy tearing. Medium extraction. Moderate aromas of candied blackberry, strawberry rhubarb pie, eucalyptus, mint, cedar, oak, and allspice. Soft and velvety on the palate, more oak-forward with loads of baking spices: cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh black fruit and molasses. Medium tannins. A beauty from Walla Walla Valley with predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, but also Petit Verdot and Merlot.
