William Knuttel Petite Sirah 2013, D. Rafanelli Vineyard$40.00
We have long appreciated the wines that William Knuttel makes – always small production, high quality. Add in fruit from Rafanelli Vineyards and you have a winning combination. The 2013 Petite Sirah, D. Rafanelli Vineyard, Rex & Amarica Block has aromas of blackberry and ripe pomegranate, black plum and black cherry, with well-integrated oak and toast. The wine is opaque, nearly like India ink, with black and deep purple hues. The velvety tannins are meshed in intense blackberry, black cherry and licorice flavors, and the well-balanced finish lingers while concentrated fruit explodes on the palate.
Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Rouge 2018$34.00
Patelin is French for village or community and the Patelin wines from Tablas Creek use fruit from neighboring vineyards as well as their own. The Tablas Creek Vineyard Patelin de Tablas is a blend of four red Rhône varietals: Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Counoise. The wine incorporates fruit from several of the top Rhône vineyards in Paso Robles, each vineyard selected for its quality. Like many red wines from the Rhône Valley, it is based on the dark fruit, mineral and spice of Syrah, with the brightness and fresh acidity of Grenache, the structure and meatiness of Mourvèdre and a small addition of Counoise for complexity. The 2018 Patelin de Tablas has a dark, Syrah-driven nose that is creamy, meaty, minerally, and a little bit wild. A little blue fruit lurks underneath and comes out with air. The mouth shows both Grenache and Syrah's influence, with black plum, boysenberry, chalky minerality and nice powdered sugar tannins that come out on the finish. Decant if you're drinking now, or age for up to a decade for secondary and tertiary flavors of meat and earth. Very Highly Recommended – Dan Berger's Vintage Experiences.

Frenchtown, Walla Walla Valley’s first settlement, was founded by French Canadians in the early 1800s. A thriving viticulture and wine making community was established in the Valley by the 1860s. This Frenchtown wine salutes these pioneers. Frenchtown shows aromas of wild berries, red cherry, and savory notes of dried sage and thyme. The generous, dark fruit flavors remain focused through an integrated finish. The generous dark fruit flavors stay bright and focused through an integrated finish. 31% Merlot, 25% Syrah,
