Review of Washington Wines June 2012

Rand Sealey

Review of Washington Wines

www.reviewofwashingtonwines.com

 

2011 Tertulia Cellars Viognier, Yakima Valley, Lonesome Spring Vineyard ($18)

This Vioginer (with 19% Roussanne) strikes a fine balance of crispness and tropicality with its aromas of pear-apple, white peach, orange blossoms and acacia flowers, and fresh, lively white fruit flavors that show touches of apricot pit, melon rind and minerals. On the back, the subdued tropical notes recur with light squeezings of passion fruit, tangerine and a touch of green tea. Barrel fermentation and aging sur lie adds texture, and a touch of citrus gives the wine crispness. 18/20 points.

 

2011 Tertulia Cellars Rosé, Yakima Valley, Lonesome Spring Vineyard ($16)

A blend of 73% Mourvedre, 24% Counoise and 3% Grenache this wine shows a pinkish copper color and aromas of raspberry and red currant. The Counoise lifts the nose with exotic perfumes of rose petals, jasmine and litchee. The flavors are well extracted, but not overtly juicy (from 10 hours on the skins before fermentation in oak). As a result, the back picks up touches of orange peel and grape skin, followed by a Provençal-like lightly spiced dry finish. 18/20 points.

2012 Seattle Wine Awards

2009 Walla Walla Valley Cabernet Franc- Double Gold

Washington Tasting Room Magazine Wine Picks: Les Collines Vineyard

Les Collines Vineyard

"A diamond in the rough, this Walla Walla Valley vineyard is turning heads across the country as a growing roster of world class wines emerge from its unique terroir." "Les Collines fruit is beautiful, insanely structured with robust aromatics." "About thirty wineries in Washington, Oregon, and as far away as New Jersey are using Les Collines Fruit."

Get a taste of this rising star with Tertulia's 2008 Les Collines Syrah. Aged 16 months in mostly neutral French oak barrels gives this Syrah an old world kiss.
