    February 15, 2015 - No detailed notes since we drank it about a week ago and I am just now recording it. It was a nice wine, similar to other MB we have had. Good for the price but nothing special. I do think it was better than I remembr the 2010 being.

    December 22, 2014 - This wine has rounded out into a smooth, silky SMG with red plum and cherry on the nose, a touch of pepper, and a big fruity palate that throws its weight around the middle, finishing bright and pure over just the right amount of tannin. This is very nice, but I can see why they didn't want to pitch it at $50.00. $29.00 is reasonable.

Washington Wine Report

  • By Sean Sullivan
    7/17/2013 (link) ***** points

    (Maison Bleue Jaja Red Wine Yakima Valley) The price has gone up again but so too has the quality. It’s a vibrant, complex wine with an endless list of aromatic notes including dark plums, peppery spice, herbs de Provence, citrus twist, freshly picked blackberries, and orange peel. The palate is textured and gravelly, rich but subdued with tart acidity. Just a baby now, it needs some time to mature but is worthy of a spot in your cellar and a place at your dinner table. 43% Syrah, 35% Mourvèdre, and 22% Grenache. 1,200 cases produced. Sample provided by winery.
