Walla Walla Vintners

Figgins

Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Dark coarse tannins integrated with dry fruit of blue berry, currant and...figs??! Or is that just a figment of my imagination 😄. Great wine, fully bodied, edged in cigar tobacco and walnut, balanced finish. Celebrating this magical woman I met nearly 35 years ago. Witnessing her giving an inspirational presentation to women in leadership about ‘finding you voice and using it to make a difference’. She is amazing!! — 3 days ago

Full bodied and intense - my kind of wine to celebrate with the person I love most in life. Figgins didn’t disappoint - nor did you with this choice!

First time having K Vintners. Incredibly ripe with a strong backbone. Youthful. Reminds me of Paso Syrah. — 8 days ago

Nina Lee Walla Walla Valley Syrah 2012

Hmm. Very flavorful rich at first taste but no depth. Very strange. Normally a Syrah from Walla Walla brings complexity and a lingering penetrating finish. This one was more single note of mulberry, blue berry and some green notes that didn’t evolve. Anyway. Still enjoyable. — 7 days ago

Blue Mountain Vineyard Syrah 2014

This is very “old world” in style and feel. Nose has smoke-tinged crushed rock dust, high-pitched tangy boysenberry fruit, and a mossy forest floor note. Relatively lean in style, it’s got jolting acids and good tannic scaffolding, and some dark fruit and savory notes in the close. I feel like this one could last quite a few more years. Reminds me of those VDP Syrahs that many of the best Cote Rotie growers produce. — 4 days ago

Cayuse Vineyards

Camaspelo Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

On the nose there’s that signature Cayuse funk - mushrooms and umami. On the palate blackberry, chocolate, graphite. Complex, layered and delicious. Can probably do with a few more years of bottle age, but very enjoyable now too. — 13 days ago

I have worked with Master Somm’s that would call this Napa Cabernet. If I wasn’t so familiar with Leonetti, I would too!!!

Happy New Year! 🥳🎉🎊🍷🍾🥂

Crazy with Prime Rib, Au Gratins & caramelized cooked carrots. Stupidly good.

Still youthful. Shows its best in 8-10 years.

The things that gives it away that it’s from Walla Walla are; its round, juicy, grapiness, (with age), moist clay & particularly its volcanic ash.

Cayuse Vineyards

Bionic Frog Walla Walla Valley Syrah

Color - dark purple garnet. A bold expressive funky perfume fruit nose so classic of Cayuse with mineral-meat, smokey and mint notes lingering with a vanilla toast scent. Juicy and elegant; rich with dark plum-cherry flavors intertwined with a smokey soil bacon bitters taste—the mineral-iron characteristics follow with a tobacco long finish. Looking forward to seeing how the flavors change with different foods and as the wine opens up. Bionic Frog is favorite and definitely a wine to try and store in your cellar. Christophe Baron does it again! — 15 days ago

Horsepower Syrahs are the only ones I’ve had with more funk than Cayuse.

Flying Trout

Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Color of nice purple, different shades, not too dark. Nose of vanilla, milk chocolate, prune and cherry, nice oak and aldehyde, and a bit mint. Taste is silky with nice salty mineral and slightly sweet. Some more ripe grapes and oak on the 2nd sip. Also present are soft tannins, cherry, a bit zest, and some more vanilla. Tasty and well balanced. Sip after sip. — 19 days ago
