We love Washington State Merlot, and think it’s one of the greatest places in the world to grow and make it. That’s part of why we are so honored to get to work with a little slice of history with the old vine Merlot at Dionysus Vineyard. Our 2018 BFM consists of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, and stands up to its reputation of being the biggest Merlot based blend coming out of Washington today!
A field blend representing all five varietals planted at our Sconni Block Estate Vineyard - 48% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot - this is rosé as it was meant to be. Crisp, clean, fruit forward and utterly delicious!
This classic Washington State Chardonnay hails from Olsen Vineyard, one of the state’s premier vineyards. This is a high elevation, cool site that sits at an elevation of 1,110 feet - 1,350 feet. It was picked at perfect ripeness preserving its beautiful fruit flavors, racy acidity and natural balance. This is an amazing food wine that should be the star of setting your imagination on fire with pairing possibilities.
Our Rachis Syrah is the fraternal twin to our Tall Tales Syrah, and never can two brothers be so different. The bigger, bolder, more fruit forward flavors of this wine show the breadth of character that Syrah can have. This is another strong vineyard designate showing from Stone Tree Vineyard.
The 2018 Malbec is a vineyard designate wine from our Southwind Vineyard Estate. This is an expressive wine where dark, earthy and herbal characteristics combine with the an array of fruit forward characteristics to yield a well-balanced, sophisticated Malbec. Southwind lies on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley, perched high on a ridge of ancient lava flows overlooking the beautiful Walla Walla Valley. The diversity in elevation and soil profiles make it an extremely special place to grow grapes.
