The Columbia Valley AVA is Washington’s all-encompassing region with some 11 million acres of land in all. Included within its confines are six other American Viticultural Areas (AVA) including Yakima Valley, Red Mountain, Walla Walla Valley, Horse Heaven Hills, Rattlesnake Hills and Wahluke Slope. The Columbia Gorge and Puget Sound AVAs are the only appellations in Washington that fall outside of its borders. Despite the number of sub-appellations within its boundaries, there is the potential for further AVA development. The most significant places where the Columbia Valley is the primary appellation and does not overlap another AVA are the Royal Slope, the Columbia Basin, and the vast expanse north of the Rattlesnake Hills, which includes the entire region loosely called Columbia Cascade.

Apart from its sheer size, the Columbia valley is also widely seen on wine labels because many of Washington’s best known wineries are located in the Seattle metropolitan area. These wineries transport grapes over Read more »

  • Cougar Crest Syrah Walla Walla Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep inky purple color in the glass, with a bit of opacity. The nose is lovely, with aromas of ripe fruit, plum, blackberries and cherry, with some hints of vanilla, clove and autumn spice. The taste is just beautiful, with a blast of ripe fruit that easily transitions to some leather, green grass and white pepper notes midpalate... Read More

  • Blue Mountain Pinot Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The ripening period of the 2013 summer was hot and sunny leading in part to a hefty sugar content in Pinot Blanc. This wine is complex, with a nose of sweet vanilla, and spritely apple; the palate receives pie spice (allspice, e. g.) and a good dose of citrus and malic acids to balance the sweetness. About as good as it gets for this variety. ... Read More

  • Copa di Vino Merlot 1987

    Snoothrank:

    This review should be higher. Since I'm not a fan of Merlot, I'm already biased against the style, however I can certainly give points for sweetness. In typical Merlot fashion, the wine is dry, so this portion of character would be a 'crowd pleaser' I suppose amoungst fans, but is the reason why I'm personally docking points. Dry is here, but...

  • Basel Cellars Syrah

    Snoothrank:

    Good bright red-ruby. Cassis, blueberry, licorice, mocha and brown spices on the nose, complicated by a whiff of violet. Spicy and a bit tart, showing a savory character to its flavors of black fruits, brown spices and game. Good spicy intensity here. The acids and tannins initially clashed on the back end but harmonized with air. Finishes... Read More
