2008 Mark Ryan Winery Crazy Mary Red Mountain Mourvedre

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

This is a very dark Washington state wine, deep ruby and opaque.  The nose shows dark fruit, loam, chocolate, leather and spices.  The mouth feel is full bodied with a velvety sweet fruit and vanilla, nice layers of acid, fruit and tannin leading into very extended finish.  The Mourvedre is a really nice accompaniment to red meats and heavier fair but very drinkable on its own.  A more extended aeration will produce more smoked meat and deeper loam fragrances.

 


Score: 91
Cost: $ 45
Wine Type: Mourvedre, Washington, Columbia Valley, Red Mountain

2009 Buty Columbia Valley 64% Merlot/ 36% Cab Franc Blend

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

This is a dark and clear wine that appears heavy and full bodied.  The nose shows Spicy Oak and leather.  The Plate is fruit forward with a balanced tangy sharp middle that punctuates the fruit and then blends to a smooth lingering finish.  This is a young wine that improves with air.

2009 Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

A light golden clear color starts this wonderfully approachable wine.
A soft apple with melon nose with soft fruit and a little sweetness on the taste..But wait...there is just a hint of lingering acidity on this subtle, well balanced wine. Pairs beautifully with a day of yard work on the back porch in the afternoon with soft cheese and light crackers.

2003 Columbia Crest Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

The pour is dark rich burgundy color with good viscosity.  The nose is slightly closed though a clear fruit nose also comes through.  The taste though is in the superior level, a very nice fruit up front smooth structured middle with soft tannin finish.  You can find black berry, chocolate, and tobacco on the palate.  This will be a good wine into 2012, but is ready to drink now.
