JOSH'S NOTES - 2021 Healy Rosé
What a great wine to write about every year as its bottling means welcoming beautiful weather back into the valley. Bright melons like honeydew and cantaloupe, with hints of lemon zest and white pear! There is ripping acidity here for freshness against the luxuriously-textured mouthfeel - a perfect balance. I am loving this new vintage!
JOSH'S NOTES - 2021 Elizabeth Chardonnay
Hands down, this may be my favorite Elizabeth Chardonnay yet - I absolutely love this wine. Citrus notes like lemon rind galore, fresh melon, sliced apples, and layers and layers that keep evolving. There is fantastic acid, tension, and freshness that lingers and continues to build on itself in ultra-refreshing ways. I can’t wait to get this out to our list!
JOSH'S NOTES - 2020 Stolen Horse Syrah
2020 was a fantastic growing season in Walla Walla. Sourced from our own estate sites, along with partner vineyards, this wine showcases a variety of different types of soils, elevations, aspects, and more. A truly complex Walla Walla Valley wine. Leading with smoked meats, blue fruit, blood orange, and raspberry pie, there is a lot going on aromatically! Ultra-plush and silky tannins coat the mouth - reminiscent of some of my favorite St. Joseph. I really love this new Stolen Horse. Drink now through the next 15 years.
JOSH'S NOTES - 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
It seems like yesterday that we were knee-deep, quite literally, in the 2019 harvest. Dark ruby in the glass, it opens up aromatically in the same fashion. Dark fruits like blackberry and Bing Cherry, followed up by graphite, wood shavings, and baking spice. Ultra-balanced with long, fine-tannins and great acidity. The finish on this wine is incredible - which is something that I love about great Cabernet. Drink now through the next 15-20 years.
