Sol Stone Winery of Sammamish, Wash., reached across the Cascade Mountain summits onto the sunny Wahluke Slope AVA and Weinbau Vineyard for this 2013 Grenache, blending in 3% Syrah and aging it in 2-year-old French oak. Rose petal, pomegranate and red currant notes accent its aromas, then mint, pomegranate and blackberry dominate its rich flavors. Supple tannins close out its finish. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
