Family-owned. Artisan winemaking. Acclaimed Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. You’ve heard dozens of wineries make these claims, and while these statements are certainly true of Januik wines, they seem a little cliché too. So rather than tell you who we are, we invite you to try our wines or visit us at our new Woodinville winery and let us earn your trust. If Januik becomes your go-to wine, we’ve done our job. “Nobody in Washington State delivers more outstanding quality for the dollar than Januik Winery,” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate wrote recently. We’re particularly proud of that. Come see us.

  • Januik Weinbau Syrah 2011


    Dark raisins and raspberries come together on the nose along with streaks of vanilla and cocoa, and just a hint of a floral top note. Bright on the palate but with neither the depth nor the detail of the Ciel du cheval. This really has a lovely texture, open and clear in the mouth with good acids and slightly austere tannins supporting fine b... Read More

  • Januik Syrah Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2011


    Smoky, and a little funky on the nose with some dusty soil tones and lots of macerated floral aromas and a hint of juniper. Nicely open on entry with clear flavors of wild black raspberry, blackberry and slightly medicinal floral tones which gain prominence on the backend. The tannin here are very well managed and this gains an attractive papery... Read More

  • Januik Reserve Red Columbia Valley 2011


    Earthy, savory, rich and complex on the nose with leather and peppery nuances framing a core of pure black currant fruit. Cool and seamless one entry, then this both fleshes out a bit and firms up nicely revealing lots of polished tannins are lurking under the juicy red currant and baked black berry fruit. Picking up a bit of cafe au lait and a ... Read More

  • Januik Cabernet Sauvignon Ciel du Cheval 2011


    High toned and a bit floral on the nose with a little herb adding detail to the black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. This is a bit oily and really quite floral and perfumed on the nose. Youthful purple and plummy fruit in the mouth shows an interesting blend of freshly crushed fruit and clean oaky flavor with a hint of richness. Wood tannin... Read More

  • Januik Weinbau Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


    Opening with huge carob and mocha aromas this shows a bit of a heavy nose, a bit heavy on the oak Soft on entry, then a bit low and quite earthy on the palate with purple fruit that lacks the energy of the Champoux in the mouth. This is a bit richer with huge soft tannins in the mouth along with some burnt chocolate and dried fruit flavors. Show... Read More

  • Januik Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 2010


    Vanillas and herbs greet the nose along with with faceted purple fruit, and an exotic hint of pomegranate then turning rather soil driven on the nose. Powerful and slightly inky in the mouth, this has gorgeously ripe and crystal clear black fruit on the palate. Decidedly structured, but not tough, its packed with fine grained tannins and livel...

  • Januik Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


    Earthy on the nose and just a little candied with hints of licorice, creamy cocoa, and lovely nuanced nutty, hickory add detail to the cherry and blackcurrant fruit on the nose. Rich yet bright with acid, the tight, fleshy yet firm palate is rich with dark fruit cherry and currant fruit wrapped up in notes of espresso creme. Long and fairly f... Read More

  • Januik Winery Merlot Klipsun Vineyard 2011


    Coffee beans and a bit of steeped herb and earth frame the deeply plummy and almost slightly gamy fruit on the nose. This is a relatively big wine, that remains light on its feet. the rich fruit is supple on entry but nicely underpinned by fine acids and ripe tannins, revealing intense fresh plummy fruit with a hint of black currant on the midp...

  • After a brief introduction to the the state of Washington this past Monday I reported on my  visits to wineries in Walla Walla on Tuesday. Today I am reporting on visits both in Prosser, which lies roughly between Walla Walla and Seattle in the Yakima Valley as well as to wineries located basically within Seattle’s metropolitan footprint. As I’v... Read More

  • Januik Merlot 2011


    Lots of toasty spice joins complex aromas of chocolate, black berry, brownie, bitter cocoa, a little plum and stemmy herb on the nose. Bright and fresh on entry with a nice hint of fleshiness along with a hint of truffle and very pure chocolate that helps to frame the fruit which is all boysenberry and wild plum toned. A little tannic bite on th... Read More

  • WE visited the Januik tasting room in August of 2009. We tried many or the reds (all either Very Good or Even Better), and especially liked the Columbia Valley and Klipsun offerings. We will be watching closely (and with delight) if Januik comes to the East Coast.
