(2014 Vintage) Grapes were sourced from vineyards throughout the Columbia Valley, including the Horse Heaven Hills. • The fruit was de-stemmed and gently crushed to either upright stainless steel tanks or rotary fermenters. • Crushed grapes were typically “cold-soaked” for 24-48 hours then warmed and inoculated with a number of yeasts, including Mauriferm Plus, Prise de Mousse, Premier Cuvee and ICV-D21 to initiate 7-10 day fermentations. • Merlot and other varieties were blended in to build structure and complexity. • The wine was aged for several months in a combination of American and French oak barrels to soften and round the blend.
This one was an unexpected gem... enticing aromas of chocolate, cherries, butterscotch(!) and oak... kept coming back to the glass to take another sniff... and it's all answered by the incredible long-lasting taste that soothes the mind and soul... getcha some!
