2013 Ramblin' Rosé, Columbia Valley / $24 (STS - $20.40)

It’s time for some “real” pink people!

Yo, Mr. Gaucho man! Break out your boleadoras and let’s go snag some grapes and beef and call it a fiesta. In Argentina, Malbec reigns supreme.

Think of a spoonful of dark berry jam, a pinch of white pepper, all topped off with a sprinkle of loamy Dusted Valley earth. Invite your friends over and do the Argentinean Pasasdo. Grill it all on swords - chorizo, chavito, Bessie the cow or suckling pig.

This Cinsaut is beautifully perfumed and full of the “Rocks funk”. The palate delivers layers of minerality, fruit and spice that keep unfolding in your glass.

Purple is our favorite color. You know you’re drinking the good stuff when your teeth develop that unmistaken hue.

2012 Tall Tales Syrah, Walla Walla Valley / $53 (STS - $45.05) 

Most families have that special person that can capture your imagination with great stories about the "good old days". My grandpa Fred was that man in our family. Whether it was his heroics on the river as a young boy or the mighty bears he slayed in the big woods his stories were always fascinating. Perhaps this is why I chose to be a winemaker. Every bottle is a new story waiting to be told. Some of these stories will become legendary!

2012 Petite Sirah, Wahluke Slope / $42 (STS - $35.70)

You are welcome and encouraged to “stain your teeth” on this big bad boy. From the beginning this Washington Petite Sirah seemed to have a life force of its own. I told Corey he should have given it a little direction. But, nooo! He said the wine could find its own way through this cruel world. It is a dense, firm and expressive effort from Stone Tree vineyard - one of the warmest vineyards in Washington State.  It offers up chewy black plum and blueberry flavors that linger easily against those big refined Petite Sirah tannins. This wine starts big; stays big; finishes big.
