Tablas Creek - Tannat
Very tight and tannic right now. Ripe fruit, the nose opens up with a couple hours and takes on a nebbiolo-like quality. Viscous, with a long, tannic finish. Needs time.
Walla Walla - Washington State Cuvee
Not particularly distinct, but pleasantly fleshy and fruity, with good tannic grip and a graphite backbone.
Roche de Bellene - Bourgogne Rouge Vieilles Vignes
Fairly simple, but beautiful Bourgogne. Light bodied and colored, with bright red fruit and earth. Medium finish.
Maison Bleue - Viognier Notre Vie Arthur's Vineyard
Well-balanced, not overripe as this grape often is. Medium-long finish.
K - Syrah Motor City Kitty
A little closed-up now, but gets better with air.
