December 11, 2013: Washington's Rising Star

Washington has commanded attention in recent years with bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, along with widely planted Chardonnay and Riesling and a tantalizing range of lesser-known grape varieties. Based on the results of Wine Spectator's latest tasting report, in the Dec. 31 issue, in which 425 of nearly 975 wines reviewed rated 90 points or higher, the state has arrived as a consistent source of wines worth paying attention to in every category and price range.

What do you think is the most exciting variety grown in Washington today?
