Location: United States, Washington State
A winery built on showcasing great Washington terroir, Gramercy has achieved wonderful results with its recent set of releases. Founder, winemaker and master sommelier, Greg Harrington, focuses on crafting Rhône and Bordeaux varietals, sourced from some of the best vineyards in the state. Harrington incredibly passed the master sommelier exam at the age of 26 in 1996, which is a considerable feat considering there are just 130 master somms in the world. His winemaking philosophy is to choose the best fruit from the best vineyards and to utilize moderate ripeness with minimal intervention and minimal oak. The resultant wines are some of the best Rhône varietal efforts in the State of Washington. Particularly the 2012 'The Deuce' Syrah was a showstopper of great terroir and finesse. Also look for 'The Third Man' GSM blend, which was also a highlight in 2012.
