"2018 Sin Banderas Red Wine- A blend of 67% Syrah with the remainder Mourvedre, this shows wonderfully smoky tones giving way to a deep core of dark fruits and violets on the palate. With silky tannins and a soft texture, this is a seriously good effort that should cellar well for the next eight to ten years. Drink 2020-2028 - 91"

"Each of the four partners is bristling with talent. Like a four-legged table, each brings different skills and strengths to the project’s foundation...The energy and talent of this group radiates in Sin Banderas’ distinctive wines...Watch for more great things to come from this budding project."

- Washington Tasting Room

"2018 Sin Banderas Rose- This great new Rose is made from Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault, all sourced from the Yakima Valley. On the nose this starts off with rose water with guava and red cherry preserves. The palate has good freshness with light red berry flavors and a touch of starfruit and melon with the lightest kiss of sweetened orange rind. This is very good range here. Drink 2019-2024- 90"

"The combination is downright delicious. Only one of the five barrels was new Meyrieux Grand Selection A’coeur, so the hint of toast stays behind the nose of plum, blueberry and clove comes with a whiff of cured meats. There’s richness and great mouth feel to the dusty tannins that allow for full enjoyment of blackberry jam and elderberry flavors." -  Great Northwest Wine

"The winery does not yet have a tasting room. What it does have is four young wine professionals who have knowledge of the industry, a passion for wine, and access to some of the state’s finest grapes. It’s a recipe for another outstanding Yakima Valley winery."  - The Yakima Herald

"A Mexican, Texan, Frenchman and Washingtonian walk into a winery...and the result is Sin Banderas"  - Nicholas Vroman

"The new red wine by Sin Banderas was very good, coming from the warm, 2015 vintage. This wine made from largely Syrah shows a wonderful red and dark fruit character, with a lovely mouthfeel. This project winery is an exciting endeavor that will only continue to produce high quality bottlings."  - Owen Bargreen
