2009 C-S-M Red Wine
“CSM” refers to the Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Malbec that were blended to create this limited release wine. For this 2009 vintage, we sourced all of the fruit from our vineyard at Canoe Ridge Estate in Washington’s Horse Heaven Hills AVA. The Cab adds structure, while the Malbec and Syrah bring brambleberry flavors and a lush texture to the red wine.
2012 Walla Walla Red Wine
Wines from the unique Walla Walla Valley AVA can be anything from fine boned and elegant to broad and stout in structure. Our 2012 interpretation is a bridge between these extremes, full of bright fruit and sculpted tannin, like fine silk draped over an oak canopy.
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.
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.
