Revealing blackberry, mocha, and anise.


Mountain minerality, black cherry, and spice
box on the palate, lead to a rich texture,
followed by a lengthy finish. This wine is
built to age for another 10 years.

Growing Conditions

2012 returns to a “normal” weather pattern in
Washington. It was a warm, sunny, dry summer, with significant
diurnal temperature swings, especially in the fall. This allowed the
grapes to retain their naturally high acidity to balance the luscious,
ripe fruit flavors. The balance of structure with riper fruit profiles
should allow these wines to mature earlier than the 2010 and 2011
vintages, while still creating age worthy
wines. This is considered a benchmark
vintage in Washington.
