2018 Buty Columbia Valley White Bordeaux Blend (Previously $25) (Previously $25)
Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Most Bordeaux-style white wines from Washington are Sauvignon Blanc heavy. This one flips the script, along with a heavy dose of Muscadelle that a few wineries in the state are working with. The aromas bring immediate appeal, with notes of whole orange, fig, herb and lees. A full-feeling, textured, flavorful palate follows, redolent with fig flavors. A lingering finish caps it off. It's glorious with a long life ahead of it. Hard to keep your hands off now but will be best after 2023. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2020* (SS)" ...

It has the 2018 vintage’s fresher, more elegant style yet brings ample fruit and has an expansive, layered mouthfeel as well as a great finish. It’s another wine to enjoy any time over the coming 15-20 years." (01/2021)

2018 Avennia "Oliane" Yakima Valley Sauvignon Blanc (Elsewhere $28) (Elsewhere $28)

It has a racy yet also textured style, with classy lemon, white flowers, apple blossom aromas and flavors. Winemaker Chris Peterson continues to fashion some of the most impressive wines in the State. These are always more classical in style and show plenty of acidity and structure in their youth, yet they blossom with just short term cellaring and are brilliant wines."

This wine was a revelation to me during a recent tasting! Such a beautifully pure, elegant, expressive Zinfandel. It perfectly captures the exotic, forward fruit of the varietal, but also has lots of lift and freshness on the palate. It weighs in at a very moderate 13.9% alcohol. From 30+-year-old, head-trained vines on Stulhmuller's Alexander Valley estate. Co-fermented with Petite Sirah and Carignane, basket pressed, aged for 18 months in a mix of French and American oak with just 20% being new. This was a real winner for me, reminds me of Ridge Lytton...

Cabernet Franc can exist in two styles; the more elegant central Loire style or the more muscular style found in Bordeaux. The Bayly Ranch Cab Franc is more a nod towards the Loire Valley reds of Chinon, Saumur, and Bourgueil. Tobacco notes and plums frame the nose. The wine is medium weight and more of an Old World style that beguiles you with an ethereal expression of the grape. There’s plenty of bright berries, mild spice, and a long savory finish. It’s no wonder this has become of one of our best sellers.

It shows more floral and sappy herb notes with time in the glass and is wonderfully complex. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has sweet tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a charming, undeniably delicious, and ready-to-go profile that should still keep for a decade."

Perched in the remote Gavilan Mountain Range, 1,800 feet above California's Salinas Valley, this rugged vineyard sits at the base of an extinct volcano bordering the Pinnacles National Park. Chalone Vineyard is one of the few wineries in the U.S. growing grapes in limestone-based soils, the same as in Burgundy. The spare, well-drained ground, limited rainfall, and low crop levels attracted Dick Graff, who wanted to make top-flight Burgundian-styled Chardonnay. Graff made his first vintage under the Chalone Vineyard label in 1966, producing what became a ...

Antonio Galloni writes: "Sustainable farming, minimal intervention in the cellar and great dirt result in some of the most compelling wines of Tuscany, and the world, for that matter."

Jean-Michel is the third Giboulot to head the family estate in Savigny-lès-Beaune, having presided over the 12 hectares in Beaune, Pommard, and Savigny since 1982. Following Jean-Michel's recent conversion to organic farming, the wines have become fresher and rounder, and the increased proportion of destemmed fruit has helped this transition in style.
