Delicious Rhone from Washington

  • 2017 Andrew Januik Grenache Los Molinos – USA, Washington, Columbia Valley (4/23/2021)
    Day 1: Very approachable on the pop and pour. Spice, red fruits, earth and minerals. A bit of heat on the finish. Good but not a great Rhone Blend from Washington. We will see on day 2 and 3. 88 points
    Day 2: This is why you should do day 2! Don’t like it on day 1 give day 2 and 3 a try. Much better. The heat has blown off and getting more of a Rhone feel on this wine. Minerals, floral, dust, earth, red fruits and roasted meats. Medium plus finish. Big improvement. 91 points
    Day 3: Solid again. This wine has some aging potential. Spice, red curants, roasted meats, floral, earth, dust and minerals. Flavorful wine. 91 points
    Recommendation: Hold these until 2023 and beyond. (91 points)
