    August 27, 2014 - Still needs an hour or so to open up, but very nice once it does. A bit of heat noticed in this bottle early on too.

    August 15, 2014 - Really shines after being open an hour or so. Deep blue/black fruit with bright raspberry overlay. Flowers, earth a bit of brine. I need to revisit the 2010 to see where it's at, but glad I have a few more of these.

    June 19, 2014 - Captivating on the aroma and on the palate. Almond and sanguine notes dominate the aroma, while the clean, pure plate glides with glycerin into a finish of menthol and sun-dried tomatoes. A profoundly interesting wine with great complexity and classic grenache varietal character.

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.
