Live (kinda) from the Taste Washington seminar Gary Vaynerchuk tastes off Washington wines.
Love the honesty, especially when the winemaker’s are potentially present

cool show, I like the classroom setting
im a viognier head too- if i see the cougar crest im all over it…
Way to tell it like it is, regardless of the audience. Hopefully the winemakers know that we vanyiacs know that every palate is different!
Just for the record GV I’m raising my hand as someone from WA that didn’t like the Cougar Crest!! Well….didn’t love it. I’m picking up a ton of oak from a lot of wines from CC.
I’m ready for part 2!!!
Personally I haven’t been too psyched about Washington whites, but I haven’t had any Viogner from there and I’ll seek that one out.
Don’t you have better things to do ?
kind of an awkward episode. the wines seem interesting. thanks gary and your welcome.
Ouch. Overall thats a tough first showing. Has to be hard calling it like it is with some of the winemakers in the room with you but I respect you for not bending over.
Those aren’t the best representations of what winemakers in washington are doing right now. Rulo’s Viognier, Syncline’s Roussanne and Cor Cellars Alba (Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer) are much better plays of what Washington is capable of. I wonder who picked those out for G.
Have had Cougar Crest..like Washington St red blends.. http://www.winelx.com
