2012 Kevin White Winery La Fraternité – USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Yakima Valley (4/5/2019)
Day 1: Violets, spice, raspberries, floral and stone. Very concentrated and full of flavor. Medium to long finish and amazing. Kevin White is making some of the best Rhone wines for the money in the US. Another stellar effort. 92 points.
Day 2: Nice rustic edge to the wine with underbrush, spice, floral, stone and raspberries. Has a little bit to the finish. Medium plus and good acidity. Outstanding value from Kevin White. 92 points
Day 3: Has lost nothing on day 3 which for younger wines is the mark in my opinion of a superior wine. Iron, stone, underbrush, floral, spice and berries. Good acidity and flavor across the palate/finish. Medium plus. Just a stellar wine at a great price point. 92+ points
Recommendation: I would hold this for a few more years if you have one left. Plenty in the tank. IF you have a six pack enjoy one a year for a comparison of the evolution. (92 points)
These wines sell in the $20 range. Amazing quality for the price. You would never find this in California for this price point.
