 Another beauty is the 2014 Wahluke Slope Primitivo, which comes all from the Northridge Vineyard. It offers a complex, brambly, spice, licorice and sweetly-fruited feel, as well as medium-bodied richness, excellent freshness and a great finish. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming 5-6 years. The Casa Smith brand is reserved for the Italian themed wines from Charles Smith.  (6/2016)

K&L Notes

Known as Primitivo in Italy and Zinfandel in the United States, this single vineyard bottling is from Charles Smith's Casa Smith label under which he bottles Italian varietals. The grapes were given a whole-cluster fermentation before the wine was aged in French oak (35% new). Charles Smith describes it as: "Rich, dark, unctuous. Briar berry, explosive, ripe and restrained."

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

- Washington has become one of the most important wine producing states in the United States, and development continues to grow rapidly. In 1969, when California was exploding as a wine producer, Washington had only two wineries, but by 2000 that number had passed 100. Most of Washington's grape crop goes to uses other than wine. Merlot and Chardonnay have been the most successful in Washington. It's interesting to note that Washington's prime wine regions are located at 46° north, along the same latitude as the legendary French wine districts of Bordeaux and Burgundy. During the summer, Washington averages more than two hours more sunlight each day compared to California.
