Wine of the Week

Wine of the Week for February 18th, 2020

2014, Result of a Crush Winery, Red Wine, $25.99

 When the Reynvaan family is involved, good things happen.  Reynvaan  Family Vineyards opened up their Walla Walla winery in 2004.  This  quickly developed into a Washington State superstar winery by creating  some incredible Syrah wines.  Result of A Crush was started by Amanda Reynvaan and Angela Reynvaan  Garratt, sisters of consulting winemaker Matt Reynvaan.  The idea behind  Result of A Crush was to produce distinctive and terroir driven wines  that are more affordable than the Reynvaan wines. I have recently had  the chance to try both of the new red wine releases here and they are  both highly impressive, bright and rich bottlings.  This outstanding value out of the Reynvaan Family is an absolute delight  to savor right now.  The wine has aromas of crushed rock, red cherry,  red raspberry, and pomegranate.  This leads to rich flavors of red  currant. red raspberry, cran-pomegranate and blackberry.  Delicious and  open style wine that retains some Walla Walla rocks terroir.
