Sleight of Hand was founded in 2007 by Jerry and Sandy Solomon, and Trey Busch. The formula at Sleight of Hand is high quality wines from Washington’s most exceptional vineyards. Sleight of Hand produces a full range of red and whites and without question has one of the top few tasting rooms in both Walla Walla and SoDo.
Ruby red in color. 15% ABV. Pretty nose of red fruits, olive brine, wet pavement and charred meats. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Vibrant and refreshing. Cherries, strawberries, kirsch and herbs on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. Washington State Grenache does not get much better than this. Absolutely shining right now. Drink over the next 3-5 years.
My rating: 93 points.
The wine is attractively priced at $45 via the winery and retail.
I’m not a big wine club guy but if I had to pick one from Washington, Sleight of Hand would be at the top of my list.
