Introduction

Last tasting prior to boarding the plan at the airport. A nice lineup of wines but the reds are the stars in their portfolio however the Rose was by far the best Rose I have tasted from Washington so far. Visit http://twincitieswinetasting.com/blog/ for all the wines I tasted on the Washington State trip. These represent good value.

Flight 1 (6 notes)

Rosé
2016 Rôtie Cellars Mourvèdre Rosé USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Walla Walla Valley
91 points
70% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah and 15% Grenache. The only really dood Rose on this particular trip. Spice, floral, cherry, strawberry and chalk. Medium, complex finish. Drink over the next few years for maximum enjoyment.
White
2018 Rôtie Cellars Southern White USA, Washington, Columbia Valley
89 points
Very delicate wine featuring floral, spice and minerals. Short on the finish and refreshing. Drink now to 2022.

Enjoyed more than the Southern White. Floral, apricots, wet stones and apple. Medium finish and good acidity. Should drink well for 5 years.

Orange peel, floral, minerals, spice and perfume. Very balanced and refreshing.

Ok now we are talking. While I enjoyed the elegance of the whites the reds were rocking. Pepper, rose petals, raspberries, blueberries, smoke and stone. Medium to long finish

Wow wonderful wine and amazing value at $40 in the wine club. Stone, funk, red currant, roasted meats and tar this is a massive wine. I could see a decade or more of aging potential. Long finish. A top 5 wine from the Walla Walla trip.
