This wine ships in the March 2017 Club Release to Artisanal Select Washington Red Wine Club Members. 

Possibly the signature wine from 2014.  The vintage was the hottest on record until the ’15 came.  This wine is a dead ringer for a Grand Cru Bordeaux (at  he price) absolutely a complete wine – beautiful ripeness with fragrance, weight, and natural acidity.  As you can see the cepage is Cabernet Sauvignon dominant 42%, 34% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, and 9% Malbec.  One of the wines that we have been most proud of in our 18 vintages of making wine in the Pacific Northwest.

STAFF NOTES:

Dark ruby in color, the black-currant and blackberry aromas are evident of the hot vintage for this Bordeaux blend. Dark fruit notes are underlined with hints of cedar, freshly sharpened pencils and tobacco. The mid-palate is full bodied with rich tannins; rounded out with beautiful blackberry, cherry and hints of pepper. A smooth finish for this young wine makes it very approachable now, however, a good cellaring will benefit this lovely Washington vineyard blend.
