Tasting Notes: Brilliantly crafted quality Viognier. This white entices with delicate floral and nectarine notes. On the palate, the wine is mouth-coating: citrus, pear and apple backed with ginger spice and white pepper with a slightly bitter finish, making this an excellent wine with a variety of foods. One of the most interesting viogniers on the market.
Tasting Notes: Bing cherry and raspberry dominate the nose and palate, accompanied by notable leather and spice notes. This wine hits well above its weight class with a lot of power and a smooth-as-could-be texture that is my favorite thing about it.
Tasting Notes: This wine has a beautiful nose and palate of blueberries, blackberries and some nice toasted oak notes. Has fantastic power, balance and a lingering finish that’s impressive to say the least.
Tasting Notes: Dry-farmed from old vines with strict organic practices and aged 12 months in French oak. The wine exudes spicy black cherry and leather aromas. On the palate, the wine shows full-bodied, balanced flavors of dark cherries, blackberry, plum and a light smoky character backed by a dark-cocoa finish.
Tasting Notes: Reminiscent of blueberry pie, this gem is exploding with dark fruit, blackberry and plum. The New World flavor is silky and jammy, with balanced acid and a lip-smacking never-ending berry finish.
Tasting Notes: I’m not sure the guys at Banshee make a bad wine. Their new project out of Washington is setting the bar high. Somehow they have packed fruit from Champoux, Wallula, Sevein and Loess Vineyards into a $20 wine. Aromas of dark berry, cedar and plum on the nose with chocolate, blackberry and a nice earthy funk on the nose. Wow!
