Columbia Valley AVA
Come on a stay-cation in Columbia Valley. We find these great wines just over that Snoqualmie hill. A great agriculture area with warmth to get these grapes as ripe as can be. We will run the gamete on varietals; white blend, red blend, Pinot Gris, Malbec, and Cabernet Frankie. We’ll have a hot time in the olde town tonight! Come and check it out Wednesday the 21st. 4pm-8pm!
Saviah Cellars, “The Jack” White Blend, 2016 $12
With its beautiful golden color, this delicious white blend is like sunshine in a glass. The aroma is citrusy and tropical, with sweet floral notes of cantaloupe, papaya, orange blossoms, and honey. The smooth, round mouthfeel leaves the whole palate tingling with flavors of lemon curd, grapefruit, and green apple. A bright, refreshing finish.
Abbey Page, Pinot Gris, 2014 $14
A perfect amount of acid in this Pinot Gris from Columbia valley. I find aromas of Meyer Lemon, pear, white nectarine, white peach and honeysuckle. Great for a chicken or fish dish and could hold up to something creamy.
Powers, Malbec 2016 $12
Showing lush layered fragrant aromatics of blackberry, plum, black currant, violets and a touch of anise, this Malbec jumps out on the palate with nice depth and complexity. The wine shows layered flavors of cherry, plum, and pomegranate, alongside a slight touch of herbs, black tea, and orange zest. Flavors linger with a nice rich and balanced mouthfeel and a firm and focused finish.
Whidbey Island, Cabernet Franc 2014 $21
Wonderful blackberries, deep plum, white pepper, juicy black cherry and creamy blueberry flavors follow an earthy peppery nose in this version of the other Cabernet.
Lady Hill, “Procedo” Red Blend, 2014 $25
This is the second baby super-Tuscan from the Columbia Valley we have seen in the humble vine, and just as delicious. Rich and round with notes of raspberry and plum with a bit of spice and leather.
62% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Franc, 13% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
