Estate grown Washington bargain.

Gordon Estate Columbia Valley Chardonnay 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • The Gordon brothers started over three decades ago farming and making wine in the Tri-Cities area and they've remained family-owned. They're a true "craft" winery as well as among the most experienced growers in the state. Cheers to this charming and sophisticated Chardonnay that could be mistaken for a much higher priced bottle.

Riesling's range.

Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling range vintage 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Cheers to Chateau Ste. Michelle for making this tasting so easy, affordable and excellent. Ever since I learned to decipher a German (Riesling) wine label, the range of styles of this grape has made me a fan. A good Riesling is vibrant, even late harvest sweet versions, not to mention highly aromatic. All three of these are true to variety, and together they show the range of Washington state Riesling from dry to sweet.

Wash-Bord original, very good year.

Hedges Washington CMS red blend 2012 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Hedges Washington CMS red blend 2012 is drinking perfectly well now. This is an original Wash-Bord red, having been first made in 1987. Washington ripe fruit overlays Bordeaux-like structure, acidity and complexity; hence Wash-Bord.

I've got friends in Merlot places.

The Velvet Devil Merlot 2014 reviewed and photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • The Velvet Devil Merlot 2014 tempts you to pick it up even if you're not sure about hanging out with a Merlot. It's structured like a Bordeaux but with Washington State fruitiness.

Honk for Yakima Valley Blanc.

Lone Birch Yakima Valley Pinot Gris 2014 reviewed on Winewaves & More.
  • Lone Birch Pinot Gris 2014 is a glass of Yakima blanc. It's not a large run (just over 5,000 cases), and a family-owned operation, just what we seek.
