Named to Wine Enthusiasts's Best of Year 2020 Buying Guide, the 2019 Cymbal Sauvignon Blanc was chosen as a Cellar Selection, "It's an enchanting look at the variety's fuller bodied side and will have a long live ahead of it."
Our 2016 Pedestal Merlot was awarded "Best in Class" and Double Gold in the 2020 San Francisco International Wine Competition. Double Gold is awarded to the very few entries that receive a Gold medal rating by all members of the judging panel; these are among the finest wines in the world.
Over the past year I have had the chance to taste some of the great Merlots from Washington. I adore the 2016 Long Shadows Pedestal Merlot (OB, 96) which is dense, layered and has massive cellaring potential.
The heart of Washington wine country has no shortage of producers. Here, in no particular order, are the ones to seek out.
I recently had the chance to review the new Long Shadows releases and was once again blown away with their consistency, showing a beginning, middle and an end. I have long admired these wines and the brilliant vision of Allen Shoup, former CEO of Chateau Ste. Michelle.
We are thrilled and humbled to be chosen as one of the nation's five best tasting rooms for the second year in a row as part of USA Today's 10Best Reader's Choice awards.
Long Shadows Vintners is the best place possible to find wines from the world's top winemakers outside their home bases.
