Volatus Wine Enthusiast Recent Reviews on the 2008 and 2014 Inside Passage

Two fun reviews we recently received from the Wine Enthusiast are shown below.  Combined with the 2007 Reserve Red review and 91 point rating, we are extremely pleased with how the wines are tasting.  Between Wine Enthusiast and The Sommelier Company every Volatus wine has received at least an 89 point score with the Inside Passage and 2007 even higher. 

Volatus 2008 Reserve Red - 89 Points

This long-aged blend of 67% Syrah and 33% Petite Sirah is plump on the oaky nose with condensed rose petal, chocolate cake and violet aromas. The palate starts with ripe black cherries but then settles into an asphalt-laden midpalate, finishing with chocolate-chip cookies and a graphite tension. - Wine Enthusiast

2014 Inside Passage Reserve White

Made to pair with halibut on the winemaker’s annual trip to Alaska, this blend of 68% Viognier, 16% Marsanne and 16% Grenache Blanc shows beeswax, seared pears, caramel corn, apple syrup and peach crème brûlée on the nose. It’s light and playful on the palate, with ripe lemons, rounded stone fruit, honeysuckle and citrus zest. - Wine Enthusiast

If you have not tried these yet I think it is about time!

Cheers!
