Best Washington Wines - The 2012 List

Original post by JonDerry, Sep 18, 2012.

Sean Sullivan recently published and updated a list of his top 100 or so wines of 2012, with predictable results. Cayuse, Quilceda Creek, Leonetti all occupy the top 3 spots, followed by a few mid tier standards like Betz, Reynvaan, Maison Bleue, Grammercy. 

Well, I should say I'm just starting to get to know these names and also starting to buy a few of these WA "2nd and 3rd growths", that seem to come with great values. I recently e-mailed a few of you about how local shops carry #7 and #13 on this list for $40, and $30, respectively. Yes, I'm expecting good and fun things. 

The List...

Should be fun getting to know Washington, and it's also a good time up in WA as the 2012 harvest is in full swing, and sounds like a very good one

Yeah Lucha, caught some of your TN's on CT when I was browsing washington wines the other week, good to see you back and in for the SS gift exchange. I'm guessing you'll be representing WA?

JD - You got it! I have plenty of Washington Wine in the $30-$40 range in my cellar that will make a nice Secret Santa gift.

I am visiting a couple of wineries in the Yakima area today.  Gilbert Cellars is at the top of my list.  I will report more later.
