2015 Limited Release Pinot Blanc
We are excited about our first vintage of Pinot Blanc sourced from the Yakima Valley. The wine shows hints of anise and cardamom along with stone fruit and floral notes. Tank fermented and aged sur lie for 6 months to show slight minerality in the rich, luscious palate.
2014 Limited Release Austral Red Wine
The combination of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre is joined by Cinsaut, which refines and brightens the complex palate. Partially fermented and aged in concrete tanks, weaving threads of pure fruit throughout is spiraling depth; focused tannins and exotic spice make this red wine a sensory delight.
2014 Limited Release Coyote Canyon Barbera
The natural high acidity of this grape variety makes for a superb food pairing wine. I was able to couple this quality with our uniquely Washington stamp of vibrant aromas, deep color, and decadent flavors to create a wine that is a delight for all your senses and for any occasion.
2014 Limited Release Boreal Red Wine
Boreal brings together Syrah (94%) and Viognier (6%) in a traditional, old-world style blend. This blend highlights the delicate side of Syrah and creates a lovely, floral wine.
2013 Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon
The Horse Heaven Hills AVA is a special place for Cabernet as the soil and climate combine to produce wines that are seamlessly elegant, yet vibrant and assertive.
2013 Limited Release Cold Creek Red
2013 was a stunning vintage that allowed for seven different varieties to find their home in the Cold Creek Red Blend. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon share the lead, with Malbec, and Syrah in supporting roles. Cameos by Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Barbera round out this vibrant ensemble cast.
2013 Limited Release Cabernet Franc
This variety expresses both fruit and herbal complexities in its flavors and aromas; a hot vintage like 2013 ripened those flavors to black cherry and sweet cooking herbs. The lengthy growing season in 2013 also allowed the tannins to achieve full ripeness –a luxurious silky expression.
2011 Limited Release Cold Creek Vineyard Syrah
An exciting, younger planting imparts subtle minerality and spice to the blend. Cooler vintage acidity and velvety tannins offer a balance that makes this wine versatile and easy to enjoy.
2013 Limited Release Walla Walla Red Wine
This blend of 48% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Syrah is sourced from opposite ends of the Walla Walla Valley, and demonstrates how weaving fruit together from diverse sites can result in a wine of richness and depth that also displays fine tannins and softly nuanced aromatics.
2014 Druthers Cabernet Sauvignon
Druthers is one our richest, most exorbitantly extracted Cabernets! Made from the oldest block of Cold Creek Cabernet, this is what Big Cab is all about.
2013 Limited Release Grenache
Bright berries, guava fruit, silky tannins, and old vine concentration.
2014 Limited Release Malbec
Malbec in Washington state is becoming a “thing” in my estimation. It loves our warm, dry climate and thrives in almost every region. It’s a wonderful combination of our Cold Creek and Canoe Ridge Vineyards with a touch of Indian Wells. Rich jam and spice flavors, it’s one of my favorites every year.
2013 Limited Release Mourvèdre
The 2013 Mourvèdre is the most complex we have ever done! This warm vintage was exceptional for Mourvèdre, resulting in a Washington wine with incredible structure, richness and character.
2012 Limited Release Stone Tree Vineyard Syrah
2012 was an exceptional vintage for this Washington Syrah. Known for ripe, jammy reds and complex Rhone-based varietals, this classic Wahluke Slope – lush and decadent, but surprisingly nuanced with velvety smooth tannins.
2015 Limited Release Austral White Wine
This Austral of “Southern” Rhône-style blend of Marsanne (69%) and Rousanne (23%), delivers richness and structure showing stone fruit and ripe melon flavors. A touch of Viognier (8%) provides layers of peach and minerality.
2014 Limited Release Extended Aging Chardonnay
Last year, while tasting through our best Chardonnay lots, we thought some would benefit from extended time in barrel. So we left ‘em to see what would happen, and we were right! We used 100% new French oak and the extended time in barrel gave the wine more complexity and great oak integration.
2015 Limited Release Sémillon
Our Sémillon was fermented in stainless steel to retain the natural fig and melon flavors and highlight the intrinsic grassiness. Sémillon is naturally full bodied and this wine shows off a rich, oily texture.
2015 Limited Release Jonté Sauvignon Blanc
Intense passion fruit, tangerine, and pomelo aromas dance & mingle with citrus and hints of cut grass on the palate. The harmony of fresh fruits and rousing acidity makes this an excellent pairing with a favorite salad or fresh seafood.
2015 Limited Release Viognier
This lovely Viognier is primarily fermented in stainless steel to show off beautiful floral aromas, delicate stone fruit with some tropical undertones. The balance of the blend is fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels to offer a hint of spice and give a soft oily texture to the palate.
2015 Limited Release Waussie Riesling
This wine is edgy, like any good Australian, but it shows the restraint and elegance of the Northwest. It is a dry Riesling that shows lime, mandarin, and white peaches tied together with beguiling ginger spice.
2013 Limited Release 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.
2015 Limited Release Oak Oval Gewürztraminer
A portion of this wine was naturally fermented in neutral oak for 6 months; the balance was fermented and aged in Oak Oval and exhibits a rich creamy texture with complexity on the palate, aromas of clove, ginger with hints of rose and lychee.
2015 Limited Release Marsanne
New single varietal addition to our collection, this Marsanne was so
expressive on its own, we had to show it to you! Bosc Pears and a floral note race through the nose with an almost viscous palate that has a truly seamless finish.
