Fall Line Winery

We were delighted to see Tim Sorenson, the fabulous and fun winemaker at Fall Line Winery, again when we attended Vino Bello’s 2nd anniversary party. It’s been a few months since we tasted Fall Line’s 2005 releases, and they just get even better and better. Yes, my favorite continues to be Fall Line’s 2005 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 100% Cab from all three of the winery’s vineyard sources. But Tim’s two blends of Merlot, Cab Franc and Cab Sauv  from Red Mountain and Horse Heaven Hills are also amazing!

We’re not the only ones to have that opinion. We were delighted to learn that Wine Advocate rated Fall Line’s 2005 Red Mountain Red Blend at 89, and rated 90 for both the 2005 Horse Heaven Hills Red Blend and 2005 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. And Wine & Spirits will soon be announcing that Fall Line’s 2005 Red Mountain Red Blend received a 90 rating, with a 92 going to the 2005 Horse Heaven Hills Red Blend!

Congratulations, Tim!
