We are taking a “Stay-cation” and visiting some of our favorites wines from Washington. We get to taste an amazing set of Blanco Vinos with bright flavors that are full bodied and freakin’ cool. A Grenache blanc that you’ll dream abou it so good, and then settle in for a Pinot Gris ROSE!!! This grey grape makes an amazing Rose, usually seen in Oregon if at all. Then a lineup of Cabernet Sauvignon from all over Washington State. A bodacious contrast/comparison with the King of grapes.
So check it out @ Humble Vine Wednesday July 18th, 4pm-8pm!
Kerloo, Grenache Blanc, WA $21
Every year, our Grenache Blanc seems to arrive just in time for Spring and before you know it it's all gone. An enticing nose that showcases bright citrus, light honey, and a hint of dry straw. This wine has a bright acidity along with a supple of mouth feel. Bursts of star fruit, lemon peel, minerals, and salinity will definitely hit the spot! You’ll want this beauty with anything seafood.
Finn Hill, Rose of Pinot Gris “Le Fantome”, WA, $21
Great name: The Phantom, The rare Pinot Gris Rose. From Washington??? Whoa!!! This alternative style of Pinot Gris is so cool. Delicious, aromatic, and richly textured. Aromas of strawberries, pineapple and baking spices intermingle with mouth-filling peach and citrus fruit. Dry and exciting. This wine is from Sugarloaf Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA of Yakima.
For A Song, Cabernet Sauvignon, WA, $14
Deep purple with generous aromas emanating from the glass bramble, sweet tobacco and vanilla, framed by luscious ripe black fruits plumb, blackberry, cassis and figs. Drinking well now but will cellar for 5 years.
Christopher Michael, Cabernet Sauvignon, WA, $15
This gets its character and fruit from across the Columbia Valley, a widely respected region any big red would proudly call home. Eager to be opened, this wine is bursting with blue and black fruits that are framed by sweet vanilla and coco from the oak on which it was aged.
SODO Cellars, “Deadbird” Cabernet Sauvignon, WA $19
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Walla Walla Valley the wine shows a true expression of fruit. Firm in texture, the wine chock full of ripe raspberry, black cherry, cocoa and coffee leading to a dusty finish with dried herbal notes. All native ferment the wine is made with 20% new French oak and fermented in stainless then transferred to barrel. This is a perfect summer cab for your next barbecue.
