wallowing in walla walla Print
Written by Nikitas Magel   

Apart from these, the wines of two producers, in particular, really excited me with their preponderance of savory and meaty, often gamey, flavors — traits we more commonly taste among old world reds — that were so nicely integrated into their dark berry fruit flavor profiles. With a prominence of animalistic aromas, these wines were downright sexy (dare I say, even sexual?) and almost spellbinding. They proudly demonstrated that respect for the unique climate together with skillful winemaking can result in some truly interesting wines:

  • K Vinters: 2006 The Boy Grenache, 2006 Cougar Hills Syrah, 2006 Pheasant Syrah (Walla Walla Valley)
  • Seven Hills Winery: 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2005 Syrah (Walla Walla Valley); 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley)

Altogether, as a group, the wines poured at the event were superb and exemplary. I was very pleased. To me, they showcased not only the best of what Walla Walla has to offer, but bespoke of the further potential that lies ahead for this rising star of a wine region.

Taste Walla Walla was the second wine event I'd attended this month to have been produced by Blue Lifestyle, the omnimedia entity and brainchild of wine, food, and lifestyle personality Anthony Dias Blue (who himself made an appearance that afternoon).
