April Sale Focus: Reynvaan Vineyards

 

02-REYNVAAN-LG_small_black-300x105Way back in 2007, who would have thought a start-up could rocket into the first ranks of Walla Walla wine? Considering the quality geology, geography, and talent in the area, it hardly came as a surprise for Reynvaan. Family-owned and -run, this is a hands-on operation that dedicated itself from the start to producing the finest wines from some of the region’s best vineyard sites. Reynvaan owns two vineyards: In the Rocks recalls the Rhone valley with its rocky ancient riverbed soil, while the Foothills in the Sun vineyard enjoys South-Southwest exposure on one of Washington’s highest-elevation vineyards, at 1600 feet: good ripening in the day, with acidities preserved at night. Once in the winery, the pursuit of terroir and Washington style becomes Reynvaan’s modus operandi.… Read the rest

Searching For Perfection: The 100 point Chateau Pavie 2000

pavieThere’s a world of difference between 99 and 100 points. In terms of prestige, collectability and rarity, that extra point might as well be a hundred.  The 2000 Bordeaux vintage, when it was released, was hyped as the “millennium vintage” both because of the date and because of the quality relative to any vintage of the 90’s (and earlier). In 2000, no wine generated more hype than Chateau Pavie.  One of the standout wines of the right bank, it received a 100 point score from Robert Parker in a retrospective tasting and has cemented itself as one of the classic Bordeaux of recent memory.  We have a single magnum to offer–a rarity of the first order. We hope it might find a good home in your cellar.… Read the rest
