A new Walla Walla release, the 2014 Ovide Jack's Vineyard is a gorgeous black fruit, black olive, dried herbs and chocolate layered beauty that has ultra-fine tannin, a seamless profile and a great finish. It has more elegance and purity than the Roma release, and is a beauty! One of my favorite tastings during my Washington trip is with Charles Smith and his right-hand man, Brenna Leighton. They have one of the most stacked lineups out there and their 2014s and 2015s are stunning across the board. Also, don’t miss the Wines of Substance reviews in this report; these are the Bordeaux blends made by this team. All of the K Vintners see little to no destemming, native fermentations and aging in French oak. As I've said in the past, these wines are the real deal! (JD)
Coming from a vineyard in the Rocks District, aromas of kirsch, black currant, tobacco, spice and mineral are followed by saturated, rich black fruit and smoked meat flavors. It packs a powerful delicious punch. (SS)
(these vines are older than those in the adjacent River Rock vineyard): Bright red-ruby. Less expressive on the nose than the Roma bottling, conveying a smoky, musky redcurrant aroma. Fat, sweet and savory in the mouth, with the smoky element joined by spices and rose petal. No easy sweetness here but this is wonderfully fine-grained and broad--and not nearly as tight as the Roma (Leighton described this wine as "more boisterous.") (ST)
Precise and a bit racy, with a well-structured core and persistent notes of dark plum, crushed stone and roasted pepper that tighten along the finish toward trim tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Drink now through 2024. (TF)
