The 2018 La Côte Patriarche, per usual, is striking in the glass with its typically dense color; glass-coating and near-black.  The aromas remind us where it comes from: warm rocks and graphite, sagebrush, tar, and wood spice join dark fruits, charred red pepper, and violets.  The dense palate is full and powerful with an assertive tannic structure. It somehow manages to maintain its freshness, however, and there’s precise, layered flavors of cedar, roasted meat, salted chocolate, and dried nori.  The finish lasts for minutes.  This can easily handle up to 20 years in the cellar, but with an hour or two decant is showing some absolute magic now.

Domaine des Pierres shows it’s unique origin immediately with a lighter purple core that fades to ruby at the edge of the glass.  The aromatics are savory, but with a bright core of expressive fruit as well.  Raspberry liqueur, blood orange rind, and pomegranate are immersed into an exotic bouquet of white pepper, green and black olive, hoisin, and dried pipe tobacco.  On the palate, it’s lush and round, with a laser beam of rich, black raspberry and cherry supported by fresh sage, cedar, and black tea.  The structure is silky and supple but with enough acidity to keeps things fresh.  The 2018 Domaine de Pierres shows why “The Rocks” are one of the most sought-out places for Syrah in North America.  It can hang in the cellar for at least 12-15 years.

The 2018 Syrah La Côte Rousse is our second vintage to be “co-fermented” with a small amount of Viognier (6%), a technique used in the Old World to bring aromatic lift and paradoxically vibrant color.  Deep, dark purple leads out to brilliant magenta highlights at the edge of the glass. The aromas are intense and exotic; black and red raspberries, apricot and passion fruit nimbly dance with graphite, sandalwood, chamomile, and rose petal.  The palate brings intense graphite and dark chocolate with boysenberry and sesame fleshing things out. The finish is lengthy with broad mineral tones and surprising delicacy.  We’ve seen La Côte Rousse gain increasing precision and finesse over the last few years and 2018 is no exception.  It’s a star of the vintage and will reward short-term cellaring.

The 2018 La Serenne shines from the moment it’s poured with dark, glass-coating, black-purple color.  The aromatics show the characteristic Boushey “wildness”: smoked meat, lavender, fennel, white pepper, and tarragon swirl along with inky blueberry, marionberry, and cacao nibs.  The palate is rich and vibrant adding cracked espresso bean, clove, and dusty mineral tone.  The polished tannic backbone indicates long cellar life, at least 15-20 years…if you can manage to resist it now.

The 2018 Bésoleil shows what it’s made of from the moment it hits the glass, displaying a brilliant, bright ruby color.  The aromas are intense and complex: strawberry preserves, orange zest, and raspberry, tellicherry pepper, fresh rose petals, and herbs de Provence.  The texture is silky and the palate expansive, adding layers of fresh spice and cedar. Freshness and delicacy are the names of the game here as it moves into a focused, lengthy, and saline finish that’s supported by a fine tannic structure.  Delicious.  The 2018 Bésoleil will continue to gain nuance over the next 8-12 years.

Only 1 Barrel Made - The 2017 Dolce Mio Figlio is full of character, with a richly colored, deep ruby hue. The aromas are expressive: brandied cherries, dried apricots, dark chocolate, hoisin, and orange peel waft out immediately with air.  The density and complexity continue through the rich, full-bodied palate, adding black plums, and mission figs. The freshness of the vintage is apparent here, supporting the wine’s significant power and ripeness to a lengthy finish that adds a pleasantly savory/saline undertone.  Dolce Mio Figlio is easy to enjoy right now, but those with patience will be rewarded after short-term cellaring.  500ml.  

This wine is an aromatic tour de force, with appealing aromas of bay leaf, black cherry, smoked meat, blueberry, dark coffee, dried herb and spice showing complexity and detail. It's rich but well in-check, with focused fruit flavors following, supported by a tight coil of tannins. It's a classy, and classically Washington, wine that will only get better with a bit of time in the cellar or a short decant. SEAN P. SULLIVAN   92 Points

Brilliant and pure-colored, the aromas of the 2019 Rosé Caché are apparent the moment it’s poured. Flinty minerality, ruby red grapefruit, apricots, and green tropical fruits explode from the glass. The palate balances rich texture with mouthwatering acidity, offering fresh melon and rainier cherry. The finish, bracing and lengthy, is full of fresh-ground white pepper, fruit pith, and mouthwatering salinity.

Hooray for Spring!

A delicate yellow color with a hint of green suggests a vintage with good ripeness but good freshness. Fresh pineapple, yellow peach, litchi and a hint of gunsmoke greet the nose. Ripe orchard fruits are revealed on a medium-bodied palate that has lovely linearity and tension. The wine is poised and balanced, with a great combination of ripeness and mineral tension. Maturation in oak has resulted in characters of warm toasted brioche and roasted almonds, and the maturation on fermentation lees has given a creamy integration to all the flavor components.
