Sangiovese 2013 - Columbia Valley
"Winemaker/owner Greg Osenbach crafts several Italian varietals from fruit grown in the Yakima Valley and Horse Heaven Hills AVAs. His Sangiovese is a delicious, medium-bodied wine, aged in neautral oak and allowed to offer aromas and flavors of cherry and berry with hints of tarry mineral that is a hallmark of Italian Chianti. The winery cat is also named Sangiovese. Give him a pat when you visit the winery on Whidbey Island this spring."

Dolcetto 2013 - Yakima Valley
"Ripe plum, spice and cherry aromas promise to deliver a palette of fruit flavors that arrive with the first sip of this lovely 2013 Dolcetto from Whidbey Island Winery. It's Yakima Valley fruit shows off pie cherry flavors and a bite on the palate and closes with a hint of leather. It's been an impressive year on the competition circuit for the Langley winery, as this bottling earned a double gold at the 2015 Great Northwest Invitational Wine Competition, and the Osenbachs also captured a double gold for their 2013 Grenache during the spring Great Northwest Wine Competition."
