Yakima Valley Merlot Rosé 2020

Small local producer. Rosé wines from Merlot aren’t typical here in the PNW. Dusky orange, excellent clarity. Label notes it was aged on lees, with aromas of “strawberries, peaches and melons” with “flavors of cherries, raspberries, strawberries and black pepper” For me, strawberry seed and melon aromas with flavors of cola and black pepper, surprise. Almost dry, rounded mouthfeel, defined skin astringency on finish, not excessive but present alongside some mineral and leesy character. Worth seeking out — 21 days ago

The Pundit Columbia Valley Syrah

Had this with coffee rubbed Buffalo short ribs. Paired perfectly. Espresso, focaccia bread spices, warm, overwhelming, but a perfect complement. Worked so so well with this meal. — 4 days ago

Light, refreshing. Perfect red for summer (if you prefer reds, but feel most of them are too heavy for warm summer temps!). Gorgeous color! — 14 days ago

The Parting GlassCordon Glass Yakima Valley Riesling 2015

Of all the comrades that e'er I had
They're sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e'er I had
They'd wish me one more day to stay

But since it fell into my lot
That I should go and you should not
I'll gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

Fill to me the parting glass
And drink a health whate'er befalls
Then gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be to you all

Week, months, years will pass. But I will miss you every single day 💙

Mark Ryan Winery

The Vincent Cabernet-Syrah Blend 2019

Smells of blueberry cream cheese

Medium bodied with cassis, pomegranate, orange zest, cedar plank, oregano.
Car Cara acidity and cedar plank tannins wrap this up into a great little package.
