Its no secret that I feel as though Washington State is producing some of the best wines on the market. The quality far surpasses most California wines at similar price points as well as offering more uniqueness, layers of flavor & different dimensions. Right now I'm sipping on a glass of Nicholas Cole Cellars "Camille" 2003 $39.99. The wine is gorgeously textured with this leathery quality that caresses me as I'm sipping on it. It has earthy, pie spice & dark fruit aromas with a little anise note. The palate is luscious & gripping but not overwrought or cloying the way many other New World blends of this type can be. I could drink this & drink this until there is nothing left & to me thats a huge compliment.
