Our Malbec grows wonderfully in the hot, aried Wahluke Slope. This wine showcases the deep color, dark fruit and lush tannin characteristics of this varietal. Aromas of flavors of black cherry and blackberry permeate the attack and mid-palate, while sweet oak and vanilla undertones lead you through the long, silky finish.

This is the first-ever vintage of our Desert Wind Chardonnay 'Heritage Series'. The 2016 vintage allowed for extended hang time on the vine, allowing the fruit for the wine to fully ripen and develop complex flavors. This Chardonnay was fermented in French oak barrels and aged on lees 4-5 months. The resulting full-bodied Chardonnay displays aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, honeysuckle, vanilla and sweet spices. Enjoy on its own or pair with seafood, roast chicken or hors d'oeuvres.
Given top rating of "Outstanding" in a blind tasting by Great Northwest Wine. The 2015 Ruah is extremely rich and round, with flavors of blackberry, plum and ripe raspberry, with hints of allspice and cocoa. This lively wine coats every taste bud, providing a satisfying experience. Ready to drink now, but will be rewarded with an additional year or two of cellaring.
While traditionally a Spanish varietal, Tempranillo grows excellently in the landscape of Eastern Washington, especially in warm vintages like 2015.

Enjoy this wine over the next 3-5 years, and try pairing with your favorite paella recipe.

A WINE CLUB EXCLUSIVE - Please log in to your account to purchase. The 2015 growing season was excellent on the Wahluke Slope - warm from start to finish which allowed our Mourvèdre (a typically late ripening variety) to achieve full ripeness and character. The nose opens with rose petals and crushed spices, and finishes with notes of cranberry and bright cherry. This lively wine dances across the tongue with just enough acidity to finish clean. A kiss of oak marries well, and serves to cement this as the serious red it is. Drink over the next 3 years.
This Syrah was aged for 13 months in neutral oak barrels to allow the incredible aromatic nose of this wine to shine without imparting toasty oak flavor. On the nose, aromas of lavender, vanilla, and baking spices complement flavors of dark fruits, candied violets and roasted hazelnuts. The finish is long and supple, with velvety tannins and a hint of vanilla. Enjoy now or cellar for up to ten years.
Lively acidity makes this wine a terrific partner for food. On the palate, flavors of cherry cola, blackberry and raspberry jam predominate. Aging in neutral oak barrels allows the natural fruit character of this wine to shine.
This Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, robust and a great example of the powerhouse reds for which Washington State is known. From the warm 2015 vintage, this wine exhibits aromas and flavors of blackberry, cinnamom, cocoa and Bing cherry. Eighteen months of post-fermentation aging allowed the wine to soften and mature, resulting in a complex bottle perfect for drinking now or aging an additional 3-5 years.
