Waters Interlude 2008

Member Review by jtryka:

For a Columbia Valley wine, this one really throws you off, since it has a nose that is so reminiscent of the lovely Walla Walla blends, which suggests for a CV designation, this one is likely under-appreciated, The nose is a lovely combination of leather, ripe red fruit and a bit of spice, all surrounded by a hint of musky earth. The taste is just lovely, with some ripe berries up front, along with some tart cherry, which makes for an interesting combination, followed by some green grass and cedar midpalate. The finish is perfectly dry, as the well developed tannins support a long, lush, dry finish.

The old adage that “great wine is made in the vineyard” is absolutely true, especially in the Walla Walla Valley given the fusion of rare geological compositions and a wide variety of microclimates. These elements have created a terroir that is capable of producing truly fine wines. From the launch of its first winery in the 1970’s, to over 100 wineries here today, Walla Walla is rapidly gaining prominence as one of the world’s great wine destinations. Waters Winery is a boutique winery located in Walla Walla, a quaint community in Southeastern Washington with a rich history and fertile lands. Now boasting over 100 wineries, world-class vineyards and some of the top restaurants in the Pacific Northwest, Walla Walla has become a popular destination for wine and culinary enthusiasts. Waters was founded in 2005 based on our indelible belief that the Walla Walla Valley terroir is capable of producing some of the best wines in the world. Our winemaking approach is influenced by our preference for distinct, "old world" wines that express the “time and place” of their origin. We are inspired by wine’s influence on various cultures throughout history, and the experiences around great food and relationship. We are intentional about making wines that carry on these traditions. We hope you will soon become part of our family by joining our mailing list and acquiring our wines! Read less

Crisp tannins wrap around cinnamon-accented dark berry and toast flavors in this supple, generous, savory red, which finishes with a hint of roasted beet. Shows depth and dimension, but not weight. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2015.

Bright, deep red. Musky, wild aromas of red fruits, flint, meat and truffle; this smells like syrah! Supple on entry, with an exotic spice quality and a whiff of whiskey barrel-like oak adding interest to the red fruit flavors. Some wiry acidity running through the wine gives it a slightly dry quality. Finishes with a flavor of sweet plum.
