CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE COLUMBIA VALLEY “EROCIA – DR. LOOSEN”’13 – “
Pale bright straw-yellow. Tangy white peach, tangerine, lime blossom and dusty stone on the nose and palate, with a riper pineapple element emerging with aeration. Offers good chewy texture and breadth without any undue weight, conveying an impression of dusty extract and a nice sugar/acid balance. More open-knit and less bracing than the 2010 release but with no shortage of energy. Relatively dry for this bottling—and a satisfying drink already. Finishes with good subtle length!.”……………..35.99

PRISONER WINE COMPANY NAPA  “BLINDFOLD” WHITE BLEND’12  –  A distinctive combination of 35% Chardonnay, 20% Roussanne, 20% Viognier and small quantities of Riesling, Semillon, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc, the 2012 Blindfold is a sleeper of the vintage. Reminiscent of the Sine Qua Non whites from further south, it bursts with honeyed, caramelized white fruits, rose petals and pineapple. Medium to full-bodied with good acidity, brilliant purity and a delineation that is uncommon for a wine with so much flavor, this beauty should drink well for 2-3 years. I hope we see more blends such as this.”…….65.99

SEVEN HILLS OREGON PINOT GRIS’14  Walla Walla winemaker Casey McCllelan continues to confirm his place among the Pacific Northwest’s most skilled and versatile winemakers with this complex and crisp Oregon Pinot Gris. He sourced it from Pete Buffington’s Abiqua Wind Vineyard near Salem and Melrose Vineyard in the Umpqua Valley, and he builds complexity by devoting 10 percent of this lot to new French oak. Floral aromas of lychee, kiwi fruit, Uncola and cherry blossom transition into a refreshing drink of pear, starfruit and lime. It’s bone-dry and crystalline with slaty minerality and a long finish of orange zest.”……33.99
