Corliss' Little Secrets

Sometimes you have to break your own rules. The applicable rule? Avoid wines with critters on the label. 
 
We debated with each other. "That label is cheesy!" said Andy. "I kind of like it," said Marcus. What we agree on is the juice inside the bottle. It rocks.
 
Of course it does. It comes from the Corliss family, whose wines are at the pinnacle of Washington. They skimp on nothing. 
 
So, whether you like the label (at right) or not, you'll absolutely love the Secret Squirrel wines from Corliss.
   
Corliss Secret Squirrel Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
$22.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($24.95 regular)
Rock solid Cab, made in every way like a wine twice its price. Great fruit sources from Red Mountain, Walla Walla, and Yakima, aged in 70% new oak for over two years, then bottle aged -- you simply don't see that in a sub-$25 Washington Cab. Classic cassis partners with espresso, sage, dried tobacco and black olive. Great for drinking now, with plenty of stuffing and structure to last several years.
   
Corliss Secret Squirrel Rhone Blend 2012
$22.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($24.95) 
Dollar for dollar, this just might be the best Rhone blend in Washington. Wonderful sweet raspberry and mulberry, cured olive, purple flowers, fig and cigar box. Beautifully balanced for sipping or pairing with just about anything from the grill, it also has plenty of cellar life ahead of it. 48% Syrah, 32% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre.
