All but one of the six wines reviewed here are made by the Northwest's two largest wine producers: Ste. Michelle Wine Estates in Woodinville and Precept Wine in Seattle. Both make wine in such large amounts that they are able to take advantage of economies of scale.

annual Premiere Napa Valley today brought in a resounding $3.04 million, nearly matching last year’s record-breaking event. The auction’s 211 lots donated by 218 NVV members were purchased in just over three hours of lively and spirited bidding at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone.

More than 80% of the lots featured were from the 2011 vintage, which had an unusual growing season. However, the vigorous bidding at today’s auction proved that the skills and experience of Napa Valley’s vineyard managers and winemakers prevail, even when the growing conditions are less than perfect.

The average wholesale price per bottle sold was $160.75, an indicator of the rarity of Premiere Napa Valley wines, the demand for the limited 2011 vintage and the overall appreciation for the consistent quality wines produced in the region.

Last March I wrote about some unique wines being made by Gino Cuneo, sold under the Tre Nova label. These are done in the appassimento style, an Italian technique that requires drying the grapes before fermenting them, which Cuneo does on racks in his workshop. He also makes more typical, dry red wines from Washington vineyards planted to Italian varieties such as barbera, nebbiolo and sangiovese.

Tre Nova's most recent releases include the debut of Nebbaro — a blend of barbera and nebbiolo sourced from a pair of Horse Heaven Hills vineyards. A little high-toned in the nose, this wine smoothes out in the glass, with pretty fruit flavors of raspberry and Bing cherry. It sells for $20.

Also in the current lineup is a 2009 Tre Nova Ripasso Red Wine ($20), with barbera, sangiovese and nebbiolo grapes in the blend. Half were air-dried for three months; the sangiovese was fermented conventionally, then blended in. The result is a dry, slightly nutty red, with tart flavors suggesting fruit leather.

Better-known wines from such California wine-growing regions as Napa Valley tend to sell well outside the United States.
