  • Novelty Hill Stillwater Creek Sangiovese 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Raspberries and spice greet the nose in a high toned and zesty fashion. This smells of Sangiovese, a little nervous and tart with mossy accents and some BBQ spice coming from the oak. Rather supple on entry then showing the classic mid-weight Sangiovese structure, a touch soft perhaps but with tons of raspberry and strawberry flavors and a hint ... Read More

  • Novelty Hill Syrah 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nutty and showing the oak treatment that is fairly consistent across the Novelty Hill line-up. Slow to emerge black pepper and beefy hints help add a dash of complexity to the tart blackberry fruit on the nose all topped with a hint of vanilla. This is supple rich in the mouth if slightly angular with blue fruit, violets and a hint of beefiness ... Read More

  • Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A bit jammy, almost roasted and beefy on the nose with vanilla accents to the blackberry fruit, as well as some toasty wood spice as well. Bright and plump with a lovely ripe mouthfeel and rich black cherry blackberry fruit supported by dusty tannins and solids acids. A subtle hint of wood spice and just a suggestion of herb shows up on the back... Read More

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.

  • Novelty Hill Stillwater Creek Merlot 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A little raw oak shows up on the nose, along with toasty spice, vanilla, a hint of coconut and green herbal and candied fennel nuance. Round, bright and clear in the mouth, this delivers a rich mouthful of raspberry and fresh plummy fruit, underpinned by fine tannins, though there is just a little too much wood tannins today. Still this is lon... Read More

  • Novelty Hill Merlot Columbia 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet on the nose with hints of mocha, herbs and peppery spice layered over plummy fruit. Bright on entry with brambly, tart raspberry fruit that is very fresh and clean on the palate picking up toasty oak and and freshly roasted coffee notes on the backend. A bit tart, lean and short, this is pleasant but doesnt excite me. 87pts Read More

  • Novelty Hill Chardonnay Stillwater Creek Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Almondy and a little toasty on the nose with some creme brûlée framing the core of apple and peach fruit. This is frankly fruity and gently sweetened by the wood. A little creamy on the midpalate, though with nice snap from acid that keeps the juicy fruit driven style nice and sapid in the mouth. This finishes with a nice smoky oak cast on the ... Read More

  • Novelty Hill Roussanne Stillwater Creek 2012

    Snoothrank:

    93% Roussanne; 7% ViognierTight, and nutty on the nose with a subtle yet complex array of heather, a bit of white pepper, almond and dry orange, dried citron, honey, orange pekoe tea, and mandarin fruit With nice focus and snap on the palate this reveals a fairly deep core of pithy, taut, grapefruit tinged fruit that shows good length on the lo...

  • Novelty Hill Viognier Stillwater Creek 2012

    Snoothrank:

    95% Viognier; 5% RoussanneThe classic nose is filled with lots of candied citrus, white flowers, honeycomb, and a hint of vanilla. Solid acids support nice fruit, fresh on the palate which is rich with quince fruit and a lovely hint of polleny polyphenolic bitterness. This is a pretty zesty style of Viognier featuring intriguing notes of green ... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    79% Sauvignon Blanc, 21% SemillonSoft on the nose and a bit creamy and spicy with lesy floral notes over a base of pineapple and grapefruit Mineral and fresh on entry, this is a touch simple though with lovely river stone minerality under slightly creamy gooseberry inflected pineapple fruit. Clean, zesty, and green fruited on the moderately lon... Read More
