Intrinsic Wine Co.

Horseheaven Hills Red Blend 2018

Well balanced but unapologetically fruit forward #columbiavalley #cabernetfranc #malbec blend. Broad dark fruit and a touch of peppery spice nose. Rich cassis liqueur mouthfeel and taste set against a juicy acidic frame and more peppery notes on the finish. Paired nicely with basic delivery pizza. — a year ago

Vineyard Block Estate

Reserve Block 045 Cabernet Sauvignon

Big black currant and licorice intertwine with smoky blackberry and charcoal aromas. Pine nettle and blackberry reduction with eucalyptus, anise and cinnamon, smoldering cedar, gum Arabic and grape leaves. A little tightly wound initially, but sprung open into an array of dark fruits in a charred black basket. #columbiavalley #washingtoncab #singlevineyard #ConnerLee #ava #washingtonstate — 5 years ago

Chateau Ste. Michelle

Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Superlative QPR #columbiavalley #cabernetsauvignon from this big volume producer. Costco had this at 94 points, though I can’t remember from which source. It’s not nearly that good, but for $10 it features good cassis, blackberry concentrated aroma, understated coffee and chocolate notes - good tartness balanced by robust fruit, velvety tannins. This one gets better after a day in the wine fridge from uncorking - excellent mid-week Cab. — 2 years ago

Lost River Winery

Rain Shadow Columbia Valley Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

Left work a bit early and decided to pick up a bottle while the wife is out with friends. Lost River is a boutique winery operating out of the the Methow Valley, WA, that sources Columbia Valley grapes. This wine is a Bordeaux style white (60/40 Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc) sourced from four vineyards. Semillon-Sauvignon blends combine the grassier honey sweetness of Semillon with tropical floral dryness of Sauvignon Blanc. The blend typically pairs well with food. Per the winemaker, this wine was partial malolactic fermented (this is what makes Chardonnay tastes buttery), aged 6 months sur lie (without fining) in a mix of stainless steel and French oak. Probably best to drink this one within a couple years of bottling - though when done right Semillion-Sauvignons can age better than your average SvB. ~$15 | #lostriverwinery #columbiavalley #semillonsauvignon

On the eyes: Med+ concentration, golden yellow, bright, med stain, med+ tears, no gas/floc.

On the nose: Clean, orange blossom, honey, lychee and pear, med alcohol.

On the tongue: Med- tannin, med alcohol, med+ acid, flat on the tongue. Honey, pear, citron, some floral notes and wisps of oak and earth. Finishes a little acidic and the fruit is ethereal - forgotten. Decent table wine.

Dazzle Cellars

Julia's Rosé Blend 2017

I ventured outside my Provence Rosé comfort zone on this #columbiavalley rosé. Medium body, fruit-forward, melon and raspberry, a bit hot alcohol with oily mouthfeel; I’d say pass on this one. — 2 years ago

Revelry Vintners

Columbia Valley Merlot 2016

Pleasantly surprised by this #columbiavalley #merlot - pretty big dark fruit on the nose; chocolate coffee and some peppery spice with the palate. — 2 years ago
