Andrew Rich

Andrew Rich left a very successful career as magazine editor, after deciding he wanted to change his lifestyle and jump into wine with "both feet". He enrolled into wine school, located in Burgundy, France, where there was only one other American student, who happened to be from Oregon. Years later, it was their friendship that ultimately prompted Andrew to migrate North, after he had worked five vintages with Randall Grahm, owner and winemaker at Bonny Doon Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Passionate about Rhone style varietals, Andrew was determined to produce these warmer climate driven wines, even though he chose to live in Oregon. Starting his own label Andrew Rich Vintner in 1994, he quickly became a noted pioneer at creating Rhone-driven wines with a Northwest spin. He continues to work with some of the most respected vineyards in the Columbia Valley of Washington. Of course, he makes Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley too... 

Over the years, Andrew has created a serious following for his wines. He produces wines under two different labels: Tabula Rasa (meaning: "Blank Slate"), which is reserved for wines that are blended from various varietals. His single specific wines are limited in production and under the Les Vigneaux label (meaning: "Little Vineyards"). The current ensemble comprises an octet of highly distinctive wines: white, pink, red, redder, sweet-culminating in the sensous, opulent and the oh so sweeter Gewurztraminer late harvest wine.

Andrew's wines are distinctive, innovative, exciting and always a treat to pull from the cellar to share with friends and family. That's only if you feel like sharing the wine!

Andrew Rich 2011 Grenache

From the long, cool (yet dry) vintage that was 2011. The result of such a vintage was dead ripe fruit without the usual sugar spike and high potential alcohol. Historically, the 2011 vintage was atypical in eastern Washington, and I don’t expect to see its like again.

Washington? The nose may well take you to the south of France, with slightly dusty notes of herbes de provence, black cherry, and olive.  While grenache is often thought of as fleshy, this is a wine with a bit a sinew, more compact than broad: a structured wine, serious even, that is far more than merely gulpable. Drink this with something meaty and savory. It would be perfect with a butterflied leg of lamb, marinated with garlic and rosemary and a bit of olive oil, and grilled over hardwood. This is at its peak now and can be enjoyed over the next two or three years.  (43 cases produced)
