  • Some American Cabs at Roger's (Roger's House): This was the surprise of the night. I haven't had the best experience with aged wine from Washington, and I was shocked to even find a bottle from the '70's from Washington, especially on the East Coast. Upon further research, I found out that the vineyard was planted in 1973, and this may have very well been the first vineyard designated bottling of this wine. So the history is really cool, and finding it is really cooler, but even better, the wine showed quite well. No way I would have guessed this was a wine from Washington nearly 35 years old. This was still quite fresh, mature but showing some red fruits. It's amazing how well this wine showed when you think that it was part of the frontier of wine making in Washington, and the vineyard still endures and produces great wine. The Insignia was undoubtedly the better wine, but this is the wine that makes me so geeked out about wine in the first place. You can imagine the wine maker bottling this wine, which very well might have been the first single vineyard wine of the state. It's exciting to be able to try it all these years later and say "Good Job, and thanks for the wonderful vino!"
