2012 Indian Wells Red Blend
The red wine reflects the rich, round powerful style of Washington fruit, highlighting six different varietals. It is a true example of the art of blending. Nearly half of the fruit in 2012 was sourced from warmer-climate vineyards in the Wahluke Slope in Washington State, including our Indian Wells Vineyard. It offers jammy boysenberry flavors from the Syrah with a luscious concentration from the Merlot.
2012 Austral Red Wine
Wine geeks rejoice; there is a surprise waiting for you inside this classic Southern Rhone-style blend! Our 2012 Austral Red Wine features whole clusters of Washington Syrah fruit that were bucketed into the bottom of the tank, then gently macerated during a slow native fermentation to yield an earthy wine filled with exotic spice. This complex vintage blends 58% Grenache with 32% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre.
2013 Cold Creek Red
2013 was another 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.
2012 C-S-M Red Wine
Finding the balance of acidity, fruit and tannins is always a fun, challenging part of making this wine, and I hope that you find the results as pleasing as I do.
2013 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.
