Washington’s Most Expensive Bottles of Wine
Surprisingly, the state of Washington has been growing wine grapes for quite a long time, since 1825, to be exact. In fact, Washington state produces more wine than any other state in the United States except California.
There are many AVAs in Washington, or American Viticultural Areas, which are the geographical wine producing regions. The most popular are the Columbia Valley, Columbia Gorge and the Walla Walla Valley. There are hundreds of wineries all over the state, and thousands of amazing wines come out of them every year. Check out our list of the most expensive:
Although the Cayuse Vineyards 2006 Bionic Frog Syrah may have a unique label, it’s so much more than that. This classic Syrah is rich and complex with supple tobacco, olive and black fruit flavors and finishes with a lovely mineral note. $325
The Silverback Winery is known for their dense reds and the 2011 Reserve Syrah is no exception. It brings a plethora of dark flavors like tar, black fruits and charcoal to provide a dark and luxurious wine. $240
With only 3,400 cases made, the Quilceda Creek 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is stunning and delicious. Its bright red flavor and super ripe aromas of blackberry and chocolate give this bottle a true Cabernet essence. $224
Coming from the Columbia Gorge, the Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen 2008 Single Berry Select Riesling is delicately sweet with aromas of dried apple, honey and brown sugar. The layered flavors bring an amazing depth that is worth every penny. $200
The complex Horsepower 2012 Sur Echalas Vineyard Grenache brings amazing aromas of flowers, green olive, pepper, orange peel and so much more. Don’t be thrown off by the lighter color- t’s rich, flavorful, and savory in the best ways. $115
