This is the first time we have ever bottled Roussanne by itself; the wine shows its heritage with richness and tropical fruit. It is sourced from a cooler site that allows for extended hang time and full flavor
2016 Limited Release Dry Muscat Canelli
We picked some of the Muscat Canelli early this year and fermented it nearly dry to offer a light refreshing version, with a delightful effervescence. The wine has a blast of jasmine, rose, gardenia aromas followed by a nice bright mandarin spicy spritziness on the palate.

Vibrant blackberry flavors are layered with hints of tomato leaf and toasted walnuts, creating a lively entry that recedes to reveal fine tannins that linger on the finish.
2014 "The Nod" Merlot
For this vintage, our intense, concentrated warmer vineyards united with cooler sites, which required the winemakers restraint rather than reinforcement to maintain freshness and balance. Bountiful brambles and delicate spices are complemented with select oak barrels to create a vibrant, focused wine.

2015 Limited Release Boreal Red Wine
This wine highlights the broad range of wine that can be made with Syrah. These Syrah (90%) grapes were co-fermented with Viognier (10%) in the style of Côte-Rôtie in Northern Rhône region of France. The Viognier brings a delicate character to the Syrah and together they create a wine with notes of orange blossom, raspberry brambles and red currants.

The techniques used to create this Syrah added layers of flavor and texture to the iconic profile of Cold Creek Estate Vineyard and created a wine that will evolve in your glass and your cellar.
2014 Limited Release Walla Walla Red Wine Blend
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. At 53%, Cabernet Sauvignon has a slight majority over Merlot’s 47%, but numbers aren’t everything. Their parity of influence is evidenced by the seamless integration of broad and fine tannins, herbal and ripe fruit notes, rich viscosity and elegant lift.
2015 Druthers Cabernet Sauvignon
Dense, ripe tannins were accentuated by nice grip from the firm acid structure, and resulted in a very rich, full expression. Still everything you look for in Druthers – decadence, rich and ripe fruit, full tasty mouthfeel and almost (but not quite) too much of a great Cab!
2015 Limited Release Grenache
Grenache is an enigmatic variety with a vast and wholly pleasing array of delicate and nuanced aromas and flavors. I created this pleasantly vibrant wine to capture some of my favorite shades of its complex identity with a blend of resonate citrus, decadent cherry pie, and earthy spices.
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.
2014 Limited Release Mourvèdre
Mourvèdre is most expressive in a warm vintage, it loves the heat of a Washington state summer and 2014 certainly gave us all of this! The meaty, rich, complex layers that developed are decadent and interesting. A really fun combination for the Rhône based varietal.
