Should we Close the Book on Bordeaux Blends?

One thing that has struck me about so many of these wines is their intensely oaky character. Lots of vanilla, cedar and chocolate dominate so many of these wines that they tend to blur into one during a tasting. Some regions seem to have adopted a more moderate approach to these wines, and Washington state is one of them. I really like what's going on with Washington wines as they try to straddle the line between full blown modern and the austere wines of tradition.

  • Is there a benchmark V. at a reasonable price, ie. perhaps Cline? And would you look at what is happening in New Mexico and Colorado with V.?

    How perfect - we planned an impromptu Viognier tasting last week at Expat Kochen - it is tonight. Thanks for the notes and insight!
