Two New Washington Wineries

Hestia and Zero One take different routes

Posted: August 19, 2011  By Harvey Steiman

Two newish wineries in Washington that deliver outstanding wine at relatively moderate prices represent different ways of getting there. One left a big bank to take a chance on starting his own winery. The other parlayed 15 years selling others' wines into a smart-business wine venture.

Neither Hestia nor Zero One involves planting a vineyard and growing grapes. Instead they're starting off slow by making a limited number of wines, getting their grapes from established growers. They both focus on a few wines and have an idea about how to establish an identity to us consumers.

Abundance of Riches

A parade of Rhône-style wines makes for a memorable evening

Posted: June 6, 2011  By Harvey Steiman

The bottle of Henschke Hill of Grace 1996 rested in my cellar for about a decade, waiting for the right occasion. It came out Sunday night at the annual dinner I donate, along with my longtime friend Archie McLaren, to the Central Coast Wine Classic auction. Last year's lot centered on Rhône-style wines—French wines from Archie's cellar, Syrah- and Viognier-based bottles of Australia and Washington from mine.

We had some great names in the lineup, including top vintages from Jean-Louis Chave, M. Chapoutier, Paul Jaboulet Aîné and Château de Beaucastel. But the HoG stole the show. As well it should, being the greatest single-vineyard wine in Australia in the greatest vintage there of our lifetime.

Washington and Malbec

Argentina's calling card shows great promise in the Northwest

Posted: May 25, 2011  By Harvey Steiman

Lately, it seems, every time I taste a few Washington Malbecs they make an impression. In the past year I slapped 90-point ratings on quite a few Malbecs from the Evergreen State. The wines tend to be supple, inviting and present flavor profiles that reshuffle the deck of Cabernet and Merlot. The wines come out with a freshness and plushness that combines charm with depth.

This movement has been going on for a while, but the phenomenon is limited enough to be flying below the radar.
