If you have not yet heard about Tranche, I would recommend trying a bottle. This winery exercises great patience and only releases wine when they feel it ready to drink. Right now you can buy their 2005 Cabernet and 2006 Chardonnay. The Chardonnay is one of my favorites from WA and is made from grapes harvested from the famous Celilo vineyard. This white reminds me of a Mersault with a little age, showing lots of minerality and depth. The Cabernet is soft and round, with plenty of supporting acidity. If you are feeling like something off the beaten path, try their Barbera.
