AntoLin Cellars, Yakima

Taste Washington! Recommended Wines.


Antolin Cellars Winemaker Tony Haralson.

Antolin Cellars is a boutique winery located in Yakima, Washington. Founded in 2007 by Tony and Linda Haralson. They source Riesling, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah from their 5-acre estate vineyard and other select sites in Yakima and Columbia Valleys.

All three wines poured for me were very good. The Elephant Vineyard Syrah stood out.

Antolin Cellars 2010 Estate Riesling.
2010 Riesling - Estate, dry, not sweet, apple, nice. ABV 12.2%, RS 2.03%, cases produced 100. $13.50 retail price. Recommended.

Antolin Cellars Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

2009 Cabernet Sauvignon dry, crisp. Good structure, lighter body. 130 cases produced. ABV 13.7%. $22 retail price. Recommended.

* Favorite: Syrah Elephant Vineyard – lighter, very good, must evaluate further. 200 cases produced. ABV 14.6%. $24 retail price. Winery notes.


Wines listed here are the wines I liked and recommend. My favorite wines appealed to me because they expressed unique characteristics and quality, they are indicated by an “*” and are in italics.
