Silver lake winery released its first vintage in the fall of 1989. In the past fifteen years the winery has grown from 2,000 cases to more than 50,000 cases of hand crafted wine annually. The winery began as the outgrowth of the passion for fine wines shared by three professors at the University of Washington and a local real estate investor. Today, Silver Lake is owned by over 1,200 wine enthusiasts who have pooled their resources together to make Silver Lake one of the state's largest locally owned wineries. Roza hills vineyard, Silver Lake's primary source of grapes, is located In Zillah, Washington, in the heart of the rattlesnake hills AVA. The southern sloping Roza Spice Bowl, as It is sometimes referred to, is situated Between 900 and 1200 feet above sea level. The protected nature of the Roza Spice Bowl gives the Silver Lake winemakers fruit that is consistently ripe and balanced. – Description from Dragac

  • As many of my fellow Snoothers know, I'm a big fan of the wines of the Dry Creek Valley and particularly of a few of the winemakers up there.  Most of them specialize to a degree in Zinfandel, a grape that has its hard-core fans, but does not get all the recognition of more widely-planted varieties like Cabernet, Syrah, Pinot Noir.  A lot of fol...

  • I know there have been at least one or two conversations about buying wines at Costco, but I happened to catch the one hour documentary about Costco on CNBC, last night.  They actually spent a significant portion of the program (8-9 minutes) about wine sales.  Here is the thing that blew me away.  Apparently, annual wine sales at Costco exceed a...

There’s also a distinct vein of toasty oak here, but the floral quality is distinct, adding nice detail to the rather restrained fruit. This is rich and soft on entry but with plenty of supporting acid. It has a ... Read More
