gilbert cellars in washington

Gilbert Chardonnay 2008 Wahluke Slope light yellow color, toasty oak on the nose, and way too much of it on the palate.. astringent some green apple but too much oak otherwise

Allogroges a blend of Mouvedre, syrah and Grenache. 2007 a blend i usually like but this bottle was not right.. a little corky on the nose, not as much on the palate but just wasnt showing as well as it could.

Cab Franc 2007.. best of the tasting.. unfined and unfinished...(I think it was unfiltered) floral on the nose and violet and lavender on the palate.. lush and soft supple finish.

Caberent Sauvignon 2007 lots of grit that may have been carry over from the cab franc actually, dark berry flavors, medium bodied, nice finish if unexciting.

Riesling 2007 mineral and stone fruits on the nose, good fruit concentration and mouthfilling...needs food though...not a cocktail wine
