Outstanding wines are worth searching for.

We taste many Northwest wines. When wine is submitted to us for review, it goes into a queue to be tasted under blind conditions – the fairest way we can think to evaluate it. During the evaluation process, we don’t know the producer or the price until we have written our notes and determined our scores are completed.

We don’t use a point scale, rather, we use the same system as professional judgings: bronze, silver and gold. We then convert that to recommended, excellent and outstanding.

Here are a dozen wines we’ve tasted recently that have earned our top “Outstanding!” rating. Ask for them at your favorite wine merchant or contact the winery directly.
