March is Washington Wine Month
Welcome to Washington Wine Month! Did you know that our great state of Washington is the 2nd largest wine producing state in the country? Over 55,000 acres of vines give way to over 900 wineries producing nearly 18 million cases of roughly 70 different varietals. Whew! Who knew?
Following is a list of them all! Just kidding, that would be quite the task. Leschi Market does have an unparalleled selection of some of the state’s best offerings. For more stats and figures regarding the Washington Wine Industry, visit: www.washingtonwine.org. Meanwhile, enjoy reading about a few of the Market’s favorites. Our cellar selections always include highly sought after Leonetti and Quilceda Creek, among many others. Happy tasting!
2015 Mark Ryan Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley ($59.99)
“A tiny 245-case production based on Cabernet Sauvignon. It has a very pretty, perfumed, fresh style in its violets, blueberry, mint and bay leaf aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated and with good acidity, it has a firm, focused style. It will evolve nicely for 4–5 years than drink nicely for more than 10–15 years.” ~Wine Advocate, 93–95+ points.
