2008 Zanzibar Cellars Sandra Alder Creek Vineyard

Horse Heaven Hills Red Blend more

7/6/2015 - jlhkiss Likes this wine: 88 points

Still very rough around the edges but it nevertheless brings a nice contrasting combo of savory herbs vs. rich, dark fruit. Not sure it will compltely balance out but it should get a little better in the next few years. Great BBQ wine.

Yes I really drank this like 5 years past the drinking window. It wasn't bad either. Not as fresh as I might have liked but enjoyable.

2011 Kevin White Winery La Fraternité

Yakima Valley Red Rhone Blend more

7/6/2015 - Merrit Likes this wine: 93 points

Decanted for over an hour. Incredible floral nose with cherry, pepper, a hint of bitter chocolate and spiced rum. Palate like the smoothest coffee combined with the most fragrant and rich flowers, some cherry, fresh strawberry, a bit of blueberry, black liquorice, black pepper and the tiniest bit of sage. It's very easy drinking but still quite complex. It's what I would expect from a high end Plan de Dieu or similar CdR Village. Now I just have to find more.

2008 Betz Family Syrah La Côte Rousse

Red Mountain more

7/6/2015 - DSimmons Likes this wine: 94 points

This is my first bottle of this bottling. The color is inky garnet. Pop and pour. The nose has earth, barnyard, olive and a little smoke. On the palate dark fruits, pepper, cassis. The wine is very concentrated with good balance. Smooth tannin. Finish is long. This wine mellowed with some air time so I would say give it an hour or two after opening. Although this wine is drinking well I believe it will continue to evolve and should be as good or better for another 5+ years.

Double decanted and taken to a wino gathering. Another stellar showing for this gem. Perfect rich ripe mid dark fruit and gorgeous aromatics on silken frame. Palate filling and satisfying all the way through. Such a pleasure every single sip. 96-97+

2008 Tulpen Cellars Syrah

Columbia Valley more

7/6/2015 - Kevincrouch Likes this wine: NR

Tighter and more solventy on the nose than the last time I drank this, it shows more minerality but retains the intense jammy blue fruits from the last bottle. Sweet caramel smooths out the finish that passes without much pause or grip.

2014 Renegade Wine Co. Rosé

Columbia Valley Rosé Blend more

6/20/2015 - Nojomoschwa Likes this wine: 89 points

This is a great summer rosé for $9.99. It veers toward the softer side of red fruits, plus some melon notes, but has a good spine and a lovely, easy-going character. Wish I had bought more.

2009 Fielding Hills Tribute Riverbend Vineyard

Wahluke Slope Red Blend more

7/6/2015 - Kevincrouch Likes this wine: NR

A fabulous wine in the outstanding range for sure. Lovely barrel notes support deep cassis throughout the palate while the supple, generous texture leaves no hard edges lying around. This could have gone a few more miles in the cellar for sure but its drinking wonderfully right now.

Reminiscent of mead as it picks up air in the glass. Golden-hued and oily with a shifting palate as it breathes. This was not at all over the hill as many have indicated

2010 Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

Walla Walla Valley more

7/6/2015 - Kevincrouch Likes this wine: NR

Just a touch of something citrusy to liven up an otherwise down-the-middle black fruit cabernet. Oak and tannins are a part of this wine but not noticeable at glides through the palate with good of momentum.

A big, bold, savage wine with weight and structure that doesn't seem to need finesse. Great earthy wild tones that you don't see in many other new world wines.

Drank over several nights with beef and chicken. Plenty of fruit and slightly complex -- especially for a wine in this price range. Could become one of our go-to weeknight cabs,.

2012 Proper Wines Syrah

Walla Walla Valley more

7/6/2015 - bajayngo wrote: NR

The fruit on this is very dense and sappy but in a good way. Had open for 4-5 days and the wine didn't budge. Tons of dark fruits with fresh loam and dry herbs. A bit of a mineral streak through it too. Really think these are built for the long haul but very approachable now.

2012 Betz Family Syrah La Serenne

Yakima Valley more

6/26/2015 - Christine Havens Likes this wine: 94 points

I felt incredibly lucky to have tasted this bottle with Betz assistant winemaker, Louis Skinner, who is both talented and, as I learned, something of a wine collector himself. The 2012 La Serenne is fabulous, with a nose that reminds me of blackberries macerated in fresh thyme, crème brûlée and cedar. The innate sweetness at the core of this stylish Syrah is offset by ripe tannins, a fine mineral-acid backbone, and more serious notes of game, iron, iodine, and loamy soil.

This was a nice wine for $7 with good QPR. It had the complexity you expect at that price point, but still worth keeping around as a nice outdoor, summer sipper.

Not one of their better efforts I am sad to say. Nothing wrong with the nose, lots of nice dark fruits and a nice amount of oak but the finish was short and the wine just seemed thin to me. I had hoped for more after laying this bottle down for almost 2 years in my own cellar but there wax no magic in this guy.
