Have had these wines before and they are solid but initial thought is that the price point is not that much better than retail. Anyone have thoughts on that? For example, local (overpriced) grocery store prices the Syrah at $16.99 and has it "on sale" for $13.99 most of the time.
Now too many to list, as I'm too lazy to figure out how to scroll it.
Suffice it to say, my retirement fund suffers, but I enjoy good juice.

Kent is in that lucky few group where if his name is on it, it's probably going to sell out at full retail. While he has a fondness for us, he's got to make money, making offerings here...illogical at best. It seems like lately, he likes to craft small batch "experiments" and share them with us because he knows us and respects our willingness to openly accept new things. We're basically his guinea pigs, and we love him for it and he loves us for it! I like the arrangement. I'll support him at retail and take his off the wall offerings here for the learning experience.

Thanks for remembering, North!

I've got a question. How many Wahsington State Wines have you drank this year? Favorites? How or what would you compare them to? Thanks!
Recently drank a DeLille Cellars Doyenne Syrah. Pretty delicious. Glad I have 1 more.
