Soos Creek Artist Series #5 Red Wine 2005

David and Cecile Larsen are the owners and winemakers for Soos Creek Winery which is located in Kent, Washington. The winery was founded in 1989 and has slowly grown in production to over 1,500 cases.

David Larsen is one of a number of winemakers who started out in the Boeing Winemaking Club. More importantly, David is in the group of Washington winemakers who are also climbers – one of my other passions.

Soos Creek sources its fruit from some of the best vineyards in the state, including Champoux, Ciel du Cheval, Boushey, Klipsun, and Sagemoor.

  1. Soos was one of the standouts for me at last year's Taste. Even after "tasting" for almost seven hours and suffering from some pretty severe palate failure, the wine stood up.

    I should pick up a bottle...
