Professional Wine Reviews for J. Bookwalter Suspense Conner-Lee Vineyard 2013

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
Reminiscent of a classy Pomerol, the 2013 Suspense checks in as a mix of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc that's from an old vine selection (all from the Conner Lee Vineyard) and was raised all in puncheons. Leafy herbs, cedar, lead pencil shavings and plenty of dark currant and plum fruit give way to a medium to full-bodied, rich, nicely textured 2013 that has ripe tannin and a great finish. Drink it over the coming decade.

Additional Information on J. Bookwalter Suspense Conner-Lee Vineyard 2013

Winery: J. Bookwalter

Region: Washington State

Washington is the second largest wine producing region in the United States, after California, with over forty thousand acres currently under vine, and over six hundred wineries currently operating there. Since the first wineries were established there in 1825, Washington has produced a wide range of wines, made mostly with classic Old World grape varietals. Indeed, their Merlot and Chardonnay wines were immensely popular over the past few decades, and helped establish this state as a serious producer in regards to New World fine wines. The dry and arid eastern side of the country is heavily irrigated, and holds over ninety-nine percent of the state's wineries, each producing the state's characteristic bright, fruit-forward red wines and dry, crisp acidic white wines, both of which are increasing in popularity around the world.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
