90 points Vinous: "(13% alcohol; includes a bit of fruit from the Columbia Gorge): Moderately saturated bright red. Musky, aromatically complex scents of cherry, game, cedar and garrigue. Nicely savory, dry wine with good spicy/herbal complexity to its dark cherry fruit. Finishes juicy and persistent. Very nicely made. David O'Reilly bottled 2,800 cases of this wine in 2015, thanks to some new sources of fruit. (ST)" (7/2016) K&L Notes: A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault.

2013 Reynvaan "The Classic - In The Rocks Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "First made in 2012, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon The Classic comes from vines planted in 2008 and is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in 40% new French oak, it sports an inky purple color to go with awesome notes of cassis, jammy blackberries, wild herbs and graphite. Full-bodied, fresh and elegant, yet with rocking concentration, this is a serious Cabernet that has the class to drink nicely in its youth, yet the balance, depth and structure to evolve for upward of two decades. (JD)" (6/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Plush and expressive, layered with spicy currant, cherry and floral ...Read More »

2013 Charles & Charles Washington Chardonnay

90 points Wine Spectator: "Polished, creamy and refreshingly balanced, with tobacco-accented pineapple and coconut flavors that come together smoothly and linger well. Drink now through 2016." (12/2014) Wine Enthusiast: "*Best Buy* Screwcapped, fresh and racy, this seemingly all-stainless Chardonnay is a total lemon fest. Ripe and flavorful--not sour--it brings scents and tastes of lemon oil, lemon peel and lemon meringue into play. It’s medium-bodied, forward and generous."

2012 Gramercy Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is most likely the greatest vintage of this cuvee to date. Full-bodied, ripe, layered and yet still elegant and beautifully balanced, it offers classic currants, black raspberry, graphite, lead pencil and cedar aromas and flavors. A blend of 92% Cabernet and 8% Merlot that saw 23 months in 40% new French oak, it has high-quality tannin, ample texture and a rock-star finish. This beauty will have two decades of longevity. (JD)" (6/2015) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "This is based on fruit from the Phinny Hill Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills, with contribut ...Read More »

2013 Novelty Hill Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Incorporating 5% Merlot and 2% Malbec, aged 21 months in 44% new oak, it offers beautiful notes of cassis, black raspberries, licorice, sweet oak and hints of spice in a medium-bodied, charming, pure and hard to resist style. It drops offer a touch on the finish, but it’s a terrific wine to drink over the coming 7-8 years. (JD)" (7/2016) Vinous: "Bright, dark red.

2014 Charles Smith "Boom Boom" Washington Syrah

2013 Gramercy Cellars "The Deuce" Walla Walla Valley Syrah

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mostly from the Les Collines Vineyard in Walla Walla, the 2013 Syrah The Deuce is a fabulous, downright sexy 2013 that’s loaded with gamy, lavender, dried violets, and peppery aromas and flavors. Giving up lots of dark fruits, full-bodied richness, sweet tannin and a graceful, never heavy texture, it shows the vintage's more charming, approachable style, yet I’m sure this beauty will cruise for a decade in the cellar. (JD)" (6/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The herb, violet, red fruit and mineral aromas start out light, with earth, smoked meat and black pepper notes lurking in the ...Read More »

2012 Andrew Rich "Prometheus" Columbia Valley Syrah

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, deep red-ruby. Pure, deep aromas of blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate, smoke and rock. Then concentrated but reticent on the palate, showing serious density and subtle sweetness to the fine-grained flavors of dark berries, spices and bitter chocolate. Most expressive today on the long, ripe, tongue-dustingly tannic finish, where flavors of dark raspberry, blackberry, licorice and spices mount slowly and linger long. This youthfully unevolved Syrah should gain in complexity but it’s already a lot of wine for the price. (ST)" (12/2014)
