McCrea 2006 Boushey Vineyard Sirocco White (Yakima Valley)

This is the first release for McCrea's white Rhône blend, a mix of 38% Grenache Blanc, 34% Marsanne, 15% Picpoul and 13% Roussanne, recently planted by grower Dick Boushey from Tablas Creek Beaucastel cuttings. There's a little bit of toasted nut flavor, but only a small number of second year oak barrels were used. The blend of grapes delivers interesting and complex fruit flavors that work seamlessly together, evoking Satsuma orange, then tangerine, then apple, then apricot, then Asian pear. The oak notes recede quickly into the background, and the wine resonates through an extended finish. Paul Gregutt
