A great combination of business up front and party out back, this is plush and crushable with exactly the flavor mix we love in Washington reds: black cherries and blackberries, super-dark chocolate and a touch of baking spice. It has a serious side in its complexity and feel, but it's more "seriously, I can't believe this is so delicious and under $20!"

Completely, totally a reserve-level Syrah without the accompanying price tag. Intensity, concentrated black and purple fruits, spice and savory threads, powerful but never overpowering. This reminds us of a slightly junior version of one of our three favorite Washington Syrahs, Betz La Serenne, which makes sense because they're both from the excellent Boushey vineyard.

Fabulous Viognier, with a rich texture and body we want in a Viognier balanced by vibrant energy. Aromas of green tea, mango, peach, and honeycomb carry through to zesty lemon and peach flavors that hang through the lengthy and mineral-accented finish.

There isn't a whole lot of Pacific Northwest Albarino...but we don't think there's a better version. Crisp and refreshing as it should be, with lime and grapefruit notes and an outstanding mineral drive through the finish. Kick ass!
