2009 Mcprice Myers Altas Vinas
"The 2009 Atlas Vinas is an exciting wine laced with dark fruit, scorched earth, licorice, leather and tobacco. The aromas and flavors come through with tons of intensity and pedigree in this full-bodied, brooding wine. There is considerable depth and richness in the glass, but readers will have to be a bit patient here. Atlas Vinas is 42% Grenache, 29% Mourvedre and 29% Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017." (08/11) - 93 Pts Antonio Galloni - The Wine Advocate
"Lots of juicy fruit with meat and berry character. A little hot and alcoholic. But outstanding wine. Full and juicy. Made from 42% Grenache, 29% Mourvedre, and 29% Syrah." (10/11) - 90 Pts James Suckling - JamesSuckling.com
"Alta Mesa Vineyard sits 3,200 feet above sea level, making it one of the highest elevation vineyards in the US. Huge temperature differentials produce fruit that is fermented into this vibrant wine." - Winery
McPrice "Mac" Myers
"Mac got into food and wine during his early twenties via his friends and coworkers at Trader Joe's in Southern California. He soon began taking trips up to the Central Coast to just to taste, but quickly found himself volunteering his time on his days off to help out at a number of wineries. After learning the process for a few years and spending more and more time on the Central Coast, Mac was ready to start making wine for himself." - Winery
This was also scored 89 points in the Wine Spectator.
2008 Tertulia Cellars Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon:
"A smoky note adds depth to the rich black currant, blackberry, grilled red pepper and tomato vine flavors that linger on the middleweight finish. The tannins are present but refined. Best from 2014 through 2018. 497 cases made. -HS"(11/12) - 92 Pts Wine Spectator
"The fertile soil and terrain of the Phinny Hill Vineyards are unique products of two types of the largest floods that have ever occurred, eruption of the greatest flood basalt lava flows known on earth and a series of catastrophic ice age glacial floods with flows so large that they permanently altered the landscape of Eastern Washington. At Phinny Hill, this combination of geography and geology combines to produce conditions for growing exceptional wine grapes from which many award-winning wines are produced. Grapes were hand-picked, and sorted before being destemmed, so only the finest fruit found its way into the wine. We pumped over twice daily for gentle extraction during fermentation. Post fermentation, the wine was aged in 100% new French oak for 20 months. 100% New French Oak." - Winery
