2013 Cougar Vineyard Syrah
From its infancy at harvest to its maturity in the bottle, this wine from the Cougar Vineyard stood out as a shining example of everything I love about Wahluke Slope Syrah – an intricate interplay of rich fruit, subtle spiciness, smooth weighty tannins, and a long complex finish.
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.
