Malbec has been one of our core wines since we began the winery. It was once the most planted grape in Bordeaux and has gained more recent attention as the dominant grape grown in Argentina. More importantly, Washington’s Columbia Valley is one of the few places in the world capable of growing exceptional Malbec. Wines made from this grape are notorious for requiring extended aging before they are released or ready to drink. Ours IS ready to drink at release but will continue to improve for at least 3-5 years in cellar and is expected to age well for 10+ years.

 We aged this wine in barrels for a full 30 months, more than 6 months longer than our average wine and 15-20 months longer than most wineries. This extended aging converts the Malbec grape from a simple, fruit forward wine into an exceptionally balanced complete wine.

Syrah has been called a winemaker’s grape meaning the winemaker can have a strong influence on the style the wine becomes through winemaking techniques. We crafted our Syrah to be soft and approachable with big, luscious fruit and just enough acidity and tannins to balance the wine. It is dark and rich in color and flavors.

 

The grapes were sourced from Seven Hills Vineyard which is one the first commercial vineyards in Walla Walla, first planted in 1980. It has a relatively high elevation for the area producing fruit with bright fruit qualities and early ripening. Seven Hills has been described as one of the “Great Vineyards of the World” by wine industry publications and has become known for producing excellent Syrah grapes in recent years.

This is our first vintage working with Tempranillo grapes which were supplied by our friends
Lloyd and Lois Piercy at Echo West Vineyards.
The historic growing region for Tempranillo is Spain where it is known as “Tinto”, “Rioja” or
“Ribera del Duero”. There has been a lot of recent success planting this grape in the Pacific
Northwest too. Here, the grapes seem to produce a more fruit forward wine which is more
approachable at a younger age than the Spanish counterparts. This is a wine paired best with
foods and specifically with meats, full flavored and spicy foods which all help to bring out the
spectrum of flavors of the wine.
We chose to age the wine in 100% American barrels for a full 2 years to bulk up the structure
and tannins as is typical for this grape. Higher end tempranillo wines from Spain are often not
released until 5 years from harvest as this is a wine well suited for long aging.
