Wine Spectator | Rating: 93Sleek and elegantly powerful, with expressive black raspberry, bacon fat and fresh pepper flavors that take on richness toward graceful tannins. Drink now through 2024. 236 cases made.Author: Tim Fish
Wine Advocate | Rating: 98Smelling just like a young vintage of Rayas with its rose petal, crushed strawberry, white pepper and hints of lavender, the 2015 Grenache Sur Echalas Vineyard is seamless, layered, full-bodied and incredibly long on the palate. It shows more Cayuse notes of olive brine and salt on the palate, has building tannin and is a gorgeous wine.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.
