Coulée Syrah Mourvedre

This 2016 is a delicious blend. Silky smooth, lots of deep fruit and sweet tannins. I’m not sure if I’ll share with my buddies Rob and Ron! — 11 days ago

I dig this producer and this selection.

Radius Wines

Washington Chardonnay 2016

Nice, medium bodied, silky feel. Melon, and a hint of citrus. Very little oak, but a nice chard nonetheless. Great with cheese, apples, confit, cranberries, etc. — 6 days ago

Garagiste

Starfire Columbia Valley Red Blend 2016

A terrific (and cheap) weeknight red. There’s no indication of the blend on the bottle, but it smells and tastes like Bordeaux varieties. Beautiful sweet ripe cherry, dusty earth, baking spices. In the mouth, savory notes take over, with lots of dark minerality and dark cherry notes. Lengthy finish. Not terribly complex or deep, but very tasty and pure. — 12 days ago

Tough to compare the Royal City bottling with any Rocks District wines, the terroirs are so different. That wine is about the flowers and fruit. Find the K 2014 River Rock bottling or 2015 Powerline for more of what it sounds like you’re looking for.

Isenhower Cellars

Jongleur Petit Verdot 2015

Jongleur Petit Verdot red table wine, Columbia Valley, Dionysus Vineyards, 292 cases made. Dense purple red, highly extracted pigment. Butter, black currant and spearmint notes in nose initially. Black currant flavor with lots of chewy tannins, with a slightly salty black licorice finish. Allow 30 minutes to open; nuanced, lightly flavored but depth of fruit, good acidity, an undercurrent of anise, fruit and floral character, but well integrated. Moderate skin astringency. — 7 days ago

Quilceda Creek

Washington Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Lovely fleshy notes on the palate with ultra silky yet persistent tannins. A little cold from the cellar. Beautiful texture - easy to love. I can see why Robert Parker gave this 100 points. Not overly Cabernet in a varietal sense but a rich, textured delicious wine still with a latent core giving at least another 5 years. Although I notice Harvey Steiman had a short drinking window through to only 2017. I bought this in the USA years ago when my son was at College - never seen it for sale in Australia. — 22 days ago

Corliss Estates

Syrah 2015

(Release Spring 2020) The 2015 Corliss Syrah is a seriously good effort from a somewhat challenging vintage for red wines in Washington State. Aged in French oak puncheons (35%) for 26 months prior to bottling, this wine exudes class. On the nose this takes on intense blue and dark fruit aromatics with exotic spices and chocolate that round out this expressive profile. The palate shows a soft, pillowy texture, engaging ripe dark berries, mocha, tar and roasted dates that combine with a good sense of freshness. This is showing marvelously at this stage and will cellar well for another decade or more. Drink 2020-2029- 93 — 9 days ago

Betz Family Winery

Clos de Betz Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Drinks more as if it were Cab-dominated with some cassis and tobacco notes (but of course it is mostly Merlot). Tannins are strong but resolved for a suave mouthfeel. Plenty of pepper and candied spice to add to an elegant balance. Held up perfectly to elk loin. — 6 days ago
