One Rich Wine Guy: Forgeron Cellars at Wildhorse

"Chardonnay is MarieEve's flagship wine. She is truly a virtuoso with this grape. The 2007 is what I believe to be one of her best ever."

"Chardonnay is Marie-Eve's flagship wine. She is truly a virtuoso with this grape. The 2007 is what I believe to be one of her best ever. The grapes are sourced from throughout the best vineyards throughout Eastern Washington. The wine has aromas of apples and tree fresh peaches. The flavors match the aroma up front, becoming creamy, and then followed with a crisp finish."

"Walldeaux Smithie is Forgeron's idea of a fun "everyday" red blend. But, don't let the cute label and name fool you. The juice is sourced from some of the most respected vineyards in the United States: Alder Ridge, Pepperbridge, Klipsun, and Boushey. Marie carefully blends different vintage sources and years to come up with the juicy flavors that she wants to showcase in this blend. Aromas and flavors of blueberry, blackberry, and vanilla to open, with a nicely rounded finish of peppercorn and silky tannins make this one of my favorite everyday wines."

"Zinfandel is another of Marie-Eve's strong suits. The 2005 is a dark plum color in the glass, with aromas of licorice, blackberries, and white pepper. The flavors are a mixture of dark cherries and blueberries. A long finish makes this a great wine to pair with bison, ribs, or wild game."
