Lush

Premier Amour washington State Syrah Blend 2008

Picked up this obscure bottle at a shop on our annual pilgrimage to Mecca, i.e., Walla Walla back a few years ago. It nicely languished in a corner of storage and lo and behold reveals a solid blend, expected palette from the described varietal utilization. Glad it had some time on it. Lush is a good descriptive expression for what it revealed. — 12 days ago

Wonderland Grenache 2016

Cherries, red plums, lychee and wet granite on the nose. It’s very young still, too young, but clearly a high quality Grenache. Medium bodied, notes of pencil lead and the plum, lychee and cherries feature prominently on the palette along with a faint hint of ruby red grapefruit. Mmmm... — 3 days ago

One Eight Distilling

District Made Straight Rye Whiskey

Smoke and maple butterscotch on the nose, for a rye moderate spice at the finish, smoke, a touch of caramel, vanilla and orange. Maybe salt? Medium body. I really liked this rye. — 3 days ago

A little cloudy and orangey yellow in appearance. Bright and lovely nose full of honeyed fruits and white flowers. A touch tart too. Medium bodied with a layered palate of honey, cantaloupe, and some red berries. Long finish. — 2 months ago

Chaleur Estate Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

Color of light gold. Nose of apple cider, mineral, ripe banana, and a bit sprite. Taste follows nose notes, with addition of good citrus acidity, ripe pineapple, honey, tinkling mouthfeel, and subtle mineral. Aftertaste is long and dominated by minerals and acidity. Pure, clean, and good flavors. — 5 days ago

Cs Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This Cabernet Sauvignon from the House of Charles Smith is always enjoyable. Well balanced and fruit forward with black fruits, earth and chocolates.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with Cheeses, olives and nuts.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (1 hour). Will get even better in a year or two.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

I had the 16 and the 15 and didn't really see much of a difference. Maybe one year of Aging ... @TheSkip

Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah

A crowd pleasing darker red for sure. Split a bottle with a friend in one sitting. Dry cherry and dark fruits but not as sweet as many red blends. Would absolutely drink this again and bring to a wine night — 5 months ago

Bold And Complex #42 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Bold and complex like it says on the label. Great tasting slightly dry complex wine with hints of vanilla and a great finish. I was pleasantly surprised! — 2 days ago
