Viognier

Current Release Vintage- 2017

# cases produced

$18 bottle/ $216 case

 

Review of our 2016 release:  Viognier is one of the most difficult wine to craft in Washington, thanks in no small part to the variety's difficulty to grow and timing of harvest.  When well done, like this example, it can be glorious, with aromas of orange blossoms, vanilla cream and hints of Mandarin orange zest.  This has zippy acidity in the finish.

Chardonnay

Current Release VIntage- 2017

# cases produced

$18 bottle/ $216 case

Review of our 2016 release:  If you try to classify this Chardonnay, it's probably more Sonoma County style than Chablis, thanks to a rich mouth feel loaded with pretty tropical fruit, including starfruit, Asian pear, juicy ripe pear on the finish, backed by steely acidity through the impressive finish.

Syrah

Current Release- 2015

Tasting notes from our 2014 release: Cloves and pepper dominate the bouquet of cherry, plum and a touch of vanilla. Smooth texture with silky tannins. Spice and Hungarian oak lead to bright cherry and plum fruit. This is an all-around wine. Drink this wine for lunch, at a barbeque, or a special dinner.

Malbec

Current Release- 2015

# cases produced

$ 30 bottle/ $360 case

Tasting notes from our 2014 release: A strong and fruity nose, with both dark and bright red fruit, followed by a mixture of spice. The wine is silky with tannins that build but don’t overwhelm. Mission Fig and Amarena Cherry are in balance with the oak. The finish is long and has a hint of a wine brandy character.

Petite Sirah

Current Release- 2015

# cases produced

$25 bottle/ $300 case

Tasting notes from our 2014 release (Petite Sirah/ Syrah): This wine is very complex, a sweet nose with Bing cherry and oak. Mouthfeel is rich and full with massive tannins but not excessively drying.  Fruit fills the palate and finishes with just a hint of Dr. Pepper.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Current Release- 2015

# cases produced

$35 bottle/ $420 case

Tasting Notes from our 2014 release: Powerful bouquet!  Dark fruit, rich and deep, followed by a mixture of spice. Tannins fill the mouth creating a chewy sensation.  Tastes of Sweetheart cherries, blueberry, toasted nut and vanilla with a long finish. This is definitely a wine to age.

1023 Cabernet Sauvignon

Current Release- 2015- SOLD OUT

32 cases produced

The 1023 Cabernet Sauvignon is an exclusive for wine club members only.

Review of the 2015 release:  This father-son collaboration in Quincy is showing great potential with a number of grape varietals, particularly with Washington's signature grape: Cabernet Sauvignon.  This example reveals sophisticated aromas and flavors of dense tobacco, black currants, cocoa powder and fresh-cut herbs.  The oak and tannins are beautifully integrated and aromatic, giving way to a graceful finish.
