Crush Weekend Photos

Gordon Brothers Winery Tasting Last Saturday

I'm making time today to share some photos from my visit to Gordon Brothers Winery last weekend. The winery is located off of the Pasco Kahlotus Highway, above the Snake River and Levy Park. It's about a ten minute drive from Pasco, Washington. While it's not the most exciting drive, it's worth the trip for the view and the fantastic wines. The Gordon Brothers winery is only open to the public twice a year, Crush weekend and in December (contact the winery for date and time).

Enjoy the view of the Snake River from the winery.

The newly released 2005 Tradition - my favorite of the weekend.

2005 Tradition - Estate Grown: This is a just released vintage. It's been in the bottle for 1.5 years. As I've mentioned before, 2005 is one of my favorite years. This wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 8% Syrah. Truly my favorite tasting of the weekend - luscious blend, with a beautiful finish. I have a bottle to sample/savor/and possibly review at a later date.

Lovely Sauvignon Blanc, layers of flavor and food friendly.

Beautiful example of Washington Merlot - puts me in the wine cellar.

Lucky me, Gordon Brothers had generous discounts on the last of their 2008 Sauvignon Blanc and 2007 Merlot. Both of these are lovely examples of the varietal and showcase well crafted Washington State wines. Sorry if you missed out, there's always next year.

In September of 2008, Gordon Brothers opened a tasting room in Woodinville, WA. Located in Woodinville’s warehouse district. I have not had the opportunity to visit Woodinville.
