Southard Winery, Selah

Taste Washington! 2012 Recommended Wines.

Southard Winery is a family owned and operated winery located a few miles north of Selah, Washington. They produce Estate Riesling as well as Rhône cultivars grown in the Columbia Valley, Yakima Valley, and Wahluke Slope AVAs.

I enjoyed visiting with winemaker Scott Southard at Taste Washington. This is the only winery I know of located in the small community of Selah. Another winery on my must visit list.

The Wines:

Southard 2010 White Wine.
White Wine, Viognier/Roussanne - Lovely mid-palate, fruit, ABV 14.5% . Recommended.

Southard 2010 Sugarloaf Vineyard Red Wine.
2010 Sugarloaf Red Blend - Pretty nose, spicy, lots of red fruit, $20. Recommended.

Southard 2009 Syrah Lawrence Vineyard.
* Favorite: 2009 Lawrence Vineyard Syrah - Interesting nose, meat, vegetal, not very Washington in style, dry, need to evaluate at home.
