Well... totally subjective of course... but if anybody is making a "great" wine there Chris Camarda is probably the one.

Not much in life isn't subjective!

I love Dunham wines. They are "great".

Slight stink on the nose, light tannins, ripe red fruit, cherry and stuff. Tasted almost like a slightly more acidic young gamay, and some cinsault blends I have had in the past. Very easy drinking and at $8 I will be buying much more. :baller:

where to kop?

Not telling. Plus Manton will probably find it for $6 somewhere so you better ask him...

In all seriousness, one of those giant discount wine warehouses in Brooklyn. I always buy cheap stuff and if I like it buy a ton more of it. Some are gems some go down the sink worth the risk, imo.

Seriously. I'd give that a try.

I've had a couple of WA wines that were at least memorable enough that I, well, remember them: Cayuse and Quilceda Creek. I remember both were overpriced, particularly the Quilceda Creek, but thankfully I was not paying for them!

I got it at BQE Wine and Liquors. Right next to the BQE, surprise!

From my limited experience, it seems like WA is still in it's adolescence as far as wine making goes. People still seem to be figuring out what grows best where, what to blend, etc. There is SO much diversity in the eastern part the state as far as soil types and different micro-climates, there is bound to be potential for exceptional wines.

To be fair to WA. I have never had a WA I didn't like. Can't say that about almost every other winemaking region I have tried.

An awesome WA wine.
