Wine Spectator | Rating: 92A fresh and expressive red, tightening on the sharply focused palate, where this plays out dark berry, plum, sweet spice and floral flavors into a harmonious chord that echoes easily on the refined finish.Author: Harvey Steiman
Wine Advocate | Rating: 97The 2011 Tempranillo Impulsivo is easily the top example of this variety coming out of the New World. Classic in style with its singed cedar board, spice, earth, dried flowers and plum and blackberry styled fruit, this puppy hits the palate with a structured, full-bodied profile that needs 3-4 years of cellaring to round into form. While I haven't been able to taste many aged example of this cuvee (it was first made in 2003), I can't imagine it not evolving gracefully for at least 10-15 years.Author: Jeb Dunnuck
In a state most often associated with rain and apples, vineyards occupy more land each year. Nearly all of this vineyard expansion has taken place in the eastern part of the state, where arid, almost desert-like conditions prevail. Winters are harsh and frost is always a threat, but such conditions, along with sandy soils, have allowed most Washington vines to grow on their own rootstocks—a rarity among wine regions throughout the world.
