Midtown Michael Brown made his first appearance at TPS in a long time, riding along with El Jefe and Kate Schorr, the new rep from one of our favorite producers, K Vintners:
K Vintners Vino Pinot Grigio Washington State 2011. Grade=Outstanding. Characters of lime zest, green apple skin, limestone and melon emerge in this light-bodied, easy-drinking white wine.
K Vintners Viognier Columbia Valley 2011. Grade=Outstanding. One of my favorite Viogniers (for more than the obvious reasons), this is a really lovely, well-balanced and light-bodied white wine with hints of pear, white peach, litchi and mineral.
K Vintners Syrah Mildbrandt Wahluke Slope Columbia Valley 2010. Grade=Outstanding. Only slightly herby, with pretty red flower notes and a smoky note all play out amongst its red and black fruited character.
