The seventy fifth installment of Wine Blogging Wednesday is hosted this month by the illustrious Joe Roberts of www.1winedude.com. "Singles Night" is all about single vineyard wines. Mulling through my cellar, I finally settled on one - Gamache Vintners 2006 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
Gamache Vintners is owned by brothers, Bob and Roger Gamache. They decided in 1982, when there were less that 2 dozen wineries in Washington, to plant grapes on a remote, gentle southern slope on the eastern ridge of White Bluff overlooking the Basin City floor and flowing into the Ringold area on the Columbia River. Essentially just north of Red Mountain.
Gamache Vintners has a lovely tasting room in Prosser. However, I remember going to taste their wine when their "tasting room" was in the garage of one of their homes. I have been a fan ever since.
Gamache Vintners is an excellent example of what nearly 30 years of grape growing experience and the gentle nurturing of vines can produce...truly remarkable wines.
Please visit Gamache Vintner's tasting room in the Prosser Vintner's Village. Also, friend/follow them up on Facebook and Twitter.
