2014 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.
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.
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.
2016 Limited Release C-S-M White Wine
This year, we wanted to make a play on the acronym ‘C-S-M’ using an assortment of white varieties. Sémillon lends a fig note while the Chenin brings fresh melon flavor. We added a touch of Muscat Canelli for a hint of juicy fruit. A fun aromatic blend from the Horse Heaven Vineyard.
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.
2016 Mimi Chardonnay
Sourced from vineyards in the Horse Heaven Hills including our vineyard at Canoe Ridge Estate, our Mimi Chardonnay is made in a lightly oaked, elegant style that is great with food. The wine offers apple and pear fruit character with bright natural acidity. This Chardonnay is refreshing yet complex.
2016 Limited Release Chenin Blanc
The 2016 Chenin Blanc exudes classic characters of fresh melon and rose-like floral notes. The finish is crisp and refreshing for ‘summer sipping’. One of my favorites every vintage.
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.
2016 Limited Release Jonté Sauvignon Blanc
Like a ripple dancing across the Loire River, this year’s Jonté Sauvignon Blanc begins gentle and fresh with light pear, white flower, and whispers of cut grass. Alluring lemon and passion fruit splash across the palate.
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.
