Tasting notes

Tasting Notes:  Dark purple-black color. Aromas of dark raspberry, blackberry fruit, dried herbs, nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon. Hints of gingerbread, cardamom and dusty earth. In the mouth this wine is full, lush and slightly sweet and tart with just a hint of tannin on the finish. 

Production notes

Production: Grapes are from Red Mountain AVA vineyards within a 2 mile radius of the winery: Hedges, Bel’ Villa, Magdalena and Rockwell Brown. The wine was destemmed and partially crushed into stainless steel fermenters where it was pumped over twice daily until desired tannin extraction was achieved. It was then pressed to barrels where it underwent malo-lactic fermentation, then racked off lees and 100% barrel aged for 12 months in 31% new oak, American (66%) and French oak (34%).

Other notes

Harvest notes: 2013 was another excellent vintage in Washington State, made slightly unusual by 80 plus temperatures in April and 90 plus temperatures in May. This uncommon early season heat caused bud break and growth to be early and rapid, exceeding average by about ten days. An average summer meant veraison and harvest began early, which led to ripe fruit throughout the state. Once again, “average” in Washington is everyone else’s “great”.
