Seattle Times deems 2001 Zinfandel "Delicious"

"...delicious...fills the mouth..."

Paul Gregutt, Seattle Times "Wine Adviser", October 28 2003


…I must congratulate winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla...Now she has released the first few wines from her own winery, Forgeron Cellars, in Walla Walla. They are simply sensational; limited production, sophisticated winemaking, very fair prices.

It is often said that wines are made in the vineyard. Yes, but...the real artistry happens at the winery, under the guidance of uniquely gifted winemakers. All of these wines are highly recommended.

Forgeron Cellars 2001 Zinfandel ($25). Another delicious Zin from Washington. Very ripe fruit, tasting of tart cherries, fills the mouth, underscored by bourbon barrel flavors from aging in American oak.
