- This wine is one of the closest wines you will get to Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Kevin White Winery from Washington State is making some of the best wines in the US for the money and world for that matter. While the 2017 La Fraternite is young if you give it a heavy decant (3 hours) you can consume this on day 1.
Blend: Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah
- 2017 Kevin White Winery La Fraternité – USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Yakima Valley (4/5/2020)
Day 1: Not ready. Highly recommend a two hour decant.
Day 2: Opening up for business. Stone, raspberries, spice, floral and dried herbs. Very flavorful and medium plus finish. Nice acidity. Well made wine. Some really nice pepper on a glass later in the day. 92 points
Day 3: A similarity to CDP on day 3. Garrigue, stone, spice, earth, dust and bright fruits. Medium plus finish with a touch of sweet fruits. Excellent wine and age worthy. 92+ points
Recommendation: Age these a few years or heavy decant. (92 points)
