REVIEWS


WINE PRESS NORTHWEST MAGAZINE* SPRING 2009

2006 Teragré Red Etude
"Excellent!"

Greg Martinez set up his new winery on Whidbey Island, and his blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir shows aromas of pie cherries, dark brown toast and some vanilla. The drink is big on Bing cherries with chocolate cake on the midpalate and a hint of soy sauce on the fine finish.

2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
"Outstanding!"

The marriage of Greg and Theresa Martinez, the latter with a career in chemistry, has helped put Greenbank, Washington on the winemaking map with its first vintage. Fruit from well-known Les Collines Vineyard fills

the glass with aromas of black cherries, strawberry fruit leather, raspberry and some leafiness. Drink in tones of candied black cherries, moist earth, milk chocolate and oregano, and the finish is reminiscent of a raspberry reduction sauce. Food matches: Fire up the grill for this luscious red wine. A flank or ribeye steak will pair perfectly. Top with sauteed onions or mushrooms.

* Offers three ratings – Recommended, Excellent and Outstanding. (Outstanding is the highest rating.) They taste blind and won't list a wine if it doesn't get one of their ratings.
