Liberty Bay Cellars

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Liberty Bay Cellars is located in Poulsbo, Washington. Winemaker and founder Dave Prigmore produces about 1,000 cases per year. The winery sources fruit from Conner Lee, Stillwater Creek, Elephant Mountain, and Sugarloaf vineyards.







Liberty Bay Cabernet Stillwater Creek Columbia Valley 2005

A delicate nose with pencil shavings and spicy plum. A tight fruit core surrounded by black fruit and lots of black currant. A slow attack that opens up and then blossoms. A bit short on the finish. 13.8% alcohol. 175 cases produced.



Liberty Bay Syrah Columbia Valley 2006

An unusual nose with mulberry and a light nut component along with something I just can’t put my finger on. At times, floral to the extent of almost seeming perfumed. A thick, gripping taste that is a bit over-extracted. 15.4% alcohol. 194 cases produced.



Liberty Bay Merlot Conner Lee Vineyard 2005

A fairly light nose with spice, dark licorice, a sweet component, and a whiff of nail polish. A bit over-extracted and tart. 14.7% alcohol. 74 cases produced.



Liberty Bay Cabernet Conner Lee Vineyard 2005

An engaging nose with dark rich spice and dried fruit. A bit of alcohol on the nose. A rich wine that is a bit over-extracted but opens up and expands nicely. Has the best finish of those tasted. 14.7% alcohol. 25 cases produced.
