Apex 2010 Chardonnay (Columbia Valley (WA))
This opens with enticing aromas of toasted hazelnut, Key lime and white peach. The firm, controlled palate is concentrated and long, offering vivid, precise fruit and a tasty hint of skin phenolics.
Apex 2006 Dry Riesling (Yakima Valley)
This is 100% Riesling, and the intense, floral aromas suggest a smattering of Gewürztraminer, at least in essence if not in fact. Beeswax, lemon candy, orange blossom and other juicy citrus components swirl around the palate, making this an exceptionally complex and beguiling wine. Though labeled dry, it carries an…
Apex 2008 Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))
Tart and tannic, with aromas that promise deep black fruits touched with smoky earth. A Merlot for Cabernet lovers, with a Cab Franc-like streak of coffee around powerful, dark fruit flavors of berry and cassis. Give this a lot of breathing time, or pop it in the cellar for at least five years.

Apex 2002 Syrah (Yakima Valley)
This is a northern Rhône style, tight, bright, and quite meaty. Along with the pure flavors of 100% Syrah fruit, it brings the tart, citrusy acids that can elevate the mouthfeel, giving it what the Australians call ‘lift.’ There’s backbone here in the form of acids and a tight spine, and you get the feeling that…
Apex 2010 Alder Ridge Vineyard Mourvèdre (Horse Heaven Hills)
This vineyard-designated Mourvèdre is nearly 100% varietal with just a small splash of Syrah added. The grape’s white pepper, pomegranate and gamy character is on full display here, framed by the refreshing acidity of the vintage.
Apex 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley (WA))
This is structured around pretty, clean, primary fruit flavors. It’s forward and accessible, with dusty blueberry and pale black cherry most prominent. Pleasant drinking, though not as concentrated as the Apex Merlot.
