Pacific Northwest," with wines being produced in the warmer areas of Yakima Valley, Wahluke Slope and Walla Walla. Back in California, there's more Petite being crushed nowadays than ever; 2013's crush, of 68,000 tons, was a record (alrhough of course the 2013 crush overall also was a record).

…100% Syrah from Boushey Vineyards in the Yakima Valley is an outstanding wine and delivers serious bang for your buck. Then we moved on to the newly released Bordeaux-style Blends. While the 2011 Gravura is an excellent wine in its own right, the 2011 Sestina absolutely "wow-ed" us. As Avennia's flagship wine, Sestina absolutely deserves top billing. It is a Cabernet Sauvignon/ Merlot/ Cabernet Franc blend from old vines at Bacchus and Red Willow. This …

…Waitsburg Cellars Old Vine Pinot Gris - 2012 , sourced from the Yakima Valley. Easy drinking! Aromas of an apple farm and hints of rain.

…an increase in acreages of this vibrant white grape. Sourced from older vines in the Yakima Valley: Willard Farms, Phil Church, Upland Vineyard, and Rothrock Vineyard.

Harvested in the cool early-morning hours, the fruit was immediately delivered to the winery and without delay, was gently whole-cluster pressed. The aromatics are feminine with notes of orange blossom. On the palate there are flavors of honey, crisp apples, and stone fruit with a light mineral finish.

And like …
