We tasted many fine Washington wines this past weekend when we visited Yakima, Prosser, Horse Heaven Hills and Red Mountain. It’s impossible to list the best of those wines, but we do want to share our picks for the best of the wines at some of the wineries we visited (in no particular order).
- Alexandria Nicole Cellars: 2007 “Mr. Big” Petite Sirah
- Gilbert Cellars: 2007 Cab Franc
- Heaven’s Cave: 2007 Barbera
- Airfield Estates: 2007 Merlot
- Col Solare: 2006 Col Solare
- Fidelitas: 2006 Optu Red
When we drove back from wine country a couple of days ago, Dave said, “This trip confirms — again — what we have always believed: our favorite wineries offer fine wine, wonderful events and great people.” We’re fortunate that many of those great people have become our friends!
Come back for more details about these wines and about Alexandria Nicole’s fabulous Harvest Party we attended at Destiny Ridge Vineyard. And you can also follow my updates at http://twitter.com/writeforwine
