While Malbec is known as a classic Bordeaux blending varietal, we chose to showcase it in on its own in this special bottling. The 2008 limited release Malbec from Wahluke Slope is a decadent wine that displays aromas of raspberries and floral notes, while bright plum flavors give way to a smooth finish.
We Also Recommend
This is a round and elegant red wine that exhibits flavors and aromas of Herbes de Provence with white pepper spice and a touch of Syrah for additional layers. There is an underlying meat and earthiness that is beautifully complex all on its own, with an interesting juxtaposition of very soft tannins. The 2008 Mourvèdre is sourced from Washington’s Yakima Valley and Wahluke Slope AVAs.
2008 Stone Tree Vineyard Syrah
Our Stone Tree Syrah is what I like to call ‘Syrah in the raw’. Made with 100% Syrah fruit from the Wahluke Slope, this is a rich, powerful wine with an earthy nose and big fruit flavors. With a slightly higher elevation and a beautiful, southern slope, this site gives Syrah of depth, breed, and amazing peppery complexity. A “perfect” ripening season with full crop yields, and restrained sugar levels led to out- standing wines from Washington State in 2008. Enjoy this full-bodied wine with pepper-crusted steak.
2014 Austral White Wine
This rhone-style blend of Marsanne (60%) and Rousanne (30%), delivers richness and structure showing stone fruit and ripe melon flavors. A touch of Viognier (10%) provides layers of peach and minerality. All wines were barrel fermented and aged for five months in neutral oak.
2013 Dry Gewürztraminer
This dry style of Gewürztraminer presents the celebrated spicy ginger and clove aromatics of a classic Gewürztraminer mixed with hints of rose, lychee and pink grapefruit. Half the wine was fermented in stainless steel to capture these classic fruit notes, and half in neutral oak barrels for added complexity and richness on the palate. Selected cool sites in Washington’s Columbia Valley yield bright, aromatic Gewürztraminer fruit.
