2014 K Vintners "Milbrandt" Wahluke Slope Syrah

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Probably the greatest vintage of this cuvee to date, the 2014 Syrah Milbrandt Vineyard is 100% Syrah, fermented with 100% whole clusters, that spent 15 months in 20% new French oak barrels and puncheons. This beauty is overflowing with notes of cassis, caramelized meats, licorice and spice, which gives way to a full-bodied, concentrated, superbly textured Syrah that can be enjoyed today, or cellared for a decade.

2012 DeLille Cellars "Doyenne-Aix" Red Mountain Red Blend

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Once you move east out of the Southern Rhone Valley and into Provence, you hit the town of Aix-en-Provence, and you have a few producers who utilize Cabernet Sauvignon, Domaine Trevallon being the most notable. Delille's Doyenne Aix is made in this image and is always a blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2012 Doyenne Aix (60/40 Syrah and Cabernet) is a one of the finest vintages of the cuvee to date and it offers full-bodied, rich, decadent notes of blackcurrants, black raspberries, smoke tobacco, chocolate and roasted-garrigue characteristics.

2012 Sixto "Uncovered" Washington State Chardonnay (Previously $38)

It's a gorgeous Chardonnay that offers lots of apple, white flowers and toasty notes to go with a ripe, rounded, sexy style on the palate. One of the more layered and ripe efforts here, it still stays fresh and lively, with plenty of zip and cut on the finish.

2013 Columbia Crest "H3" Horse Heaven Hills Merlot

Horse Heaven Hills is located in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains, where dry and sunny conditions evenly ripen the grapes. An warm overall 2013 vintage accelerated ripening, but cooler weather in September allowed for good harvest conditions and fruit-driven flavors enabled by extended hangtime.

2012 Seven Hills "Seven Hills Vineyard" Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

From the winery: "This wine is drawn from the original Cabernet Sauvignon blocks at Seven Hills Vineyard, planted by my father in 1980. This vintage marks the 25th year I have been making Cabernet Sauvignon from these same, precious old vines. After two very cool vintages, 2012 was a more “normal” vintage, pleasantly warm with heat accumulation spread through the growing season. This old vine Cabernet has a dark garnet gem color and a broad nose of ripe plum, raspberry, marzipan, toffee, forest floor, roasted meat, and thyme notes. The palate is plush an... Read More »

2014 Owen Roe "Ex-Umbris" Columbia Valley Syrah

I have counted on Owen Roe to produce some of the most delicious, instantly drinkable wines on the market. The partnership of winemaker David O'Reilly and vineyard manager Jerry Owen is akin to any of history's super duos. They produce an affordable Syrah that everyone can love. Originally made as a one-off due to a wildfire that resulted in tremendously smoky grapes, this has become one of the most recognizable Pacific Northwest Syrahs on the market today. The Ex-Umbris still has the trademark smoky qualities with bushels of blackberry, whole black pep... Read More »
