This is the first Grappa ever commercially distilled in Washington State. It uses pomace from grapes grown in the Yakima Valley and crushed in Woodinville. Aromas of straw and hay with soft pear and apple flavors.
We tasted Grappa Giallo at Meeting No. 18 on November 21, 2013. We rated it very highly at 3.05 out of 5, though we had some disagreement among member ratings. Grappa Giallo ranks 2nd overall in Other.
A dab on the back of the hand is non-oily and smells like straw and faint coconut. Nose is pleasant and harmonic. Taste - clean and sweet punch up front; vanilla, earth, toast. Round and mellow finish.
Burns the nostrils. Caramel, brown sugar like a cognac on the nose. Very enjoyable, alcoholy goodness. As I love high-proof goodness, I can see past the burn. Excellent. Could be mistaken for any number of other aged spirits. Bene!
