Washington Wine Report with Sean Sullivan
June 29, 2019
69 wines reviewed in the June issue of Wine Enthusiast.
They include some superb values from the 2017 vintage from Dusted Valley’s Boomtown label. On the white side, the Boomtown 2017 Pinot Gris Columbia Valley ($19, 90 points, Editor’s Choice) delivers, showing a lovely sense of acidity. There’s also a compelling look at the 2017 vintage for red wines, (Boomtown 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley $19, 90 points; Boomtown 2017 Syrah Columbia Valley $19, 89 points). Meanwhile Dusted Valley’s Stained Tooth Syrah consistently delivers at a more than reasonable price (Dusted Valley 2016 Stained Tooth Syrah Columbia Valley $36, 91 points).
Master blender Brian Carter of Brian Carter Cellars shows off his skills with the Brian Carter 2017 Oriana White Blend Yakima Valley ($25, 90 points, Editor’s Choice).
