Review:

A 2009 was not made.

Tranche is the sister winery of Corliss Estate, one of the hottest new wineries in the Pacific Northwest. This is a great example of bigger, richer Chardonnay with great balance. Wine Enthusiast's Paul Gregutt, who knows Washington wine as well as literally anyone on the planet, went gaga for the Tranche:

Wine Enthusiast 95 Points: The Celilo vineyard has contributed the fruit to many outstanding Chardonnays from a who's who list of winemakers, but none better than this. Intensely concentrated and deeply extracted, it explodes with marvelously pure fruit flavors the full range of citrus, citrus peel and crisp tree fruits. A wine with perfect virtually balance, exceptional texture and amazing length. - P.G.

Tranche's Chardonnay: scents of nectarine, peach blossom, dried pineapple, vanilla bean and papaya. Flavors of tropical fruits, pineapple and coconut oil. Scent and flavor lead to a finish of crisp acidity and floral notes. Tranche is sister winery to the esteemed Corliss Estates whose Cabernet is one of Washington State's most collectible wines.
