Lovely Viognier from a seven acre vineyard in the Walla Walla Valley. The Viognier is limpid yellow with a hint of green hue.

Isenhower CellarsRoussanne

We make Roussanne because we like it, it is enjoyable with Asian cuisine, and there is already enough Chardonnay in the world! We made our first Roussanne in 2002 - back then it was very unusual. Over the years we have experimented with different vineyards and styles of winemaking.

Isenhower Cellars Jongleur Bottle Preview
Isenhower CellarsJongleur

100% Petit Verdot from Dionysus Vineyard. Petit Verdot is a relatively rare Bordeaux variety - the grapes tend to ripen late and have blistering acidity, and most wineries use Petit Verdot for blending. There are few 100% Petit Verdot wines because it takes a terrific vineyard to ripen the Petit Verdot properly.

Isenhower Cellars Blanc de Blanc Sparkling Roussanne Extra Brut Bottle Preview
Isenhower CellarsBlanc de Blanc Sparkling Roussanne Extra Brut

We love sparkling wines but have made a vow not to make a chardonnay (there is enough chardonnay in the world). Therefore, following our experimental bent, we started making a sparkling Roussanne in 2012 from Olsen Ranch Vineyard and have continued since. Tiny little bubbles make for a lovely mousse. The first aromas out of the glass include yeasty notes, lemon, tangerine, and mango rind with hints of toasted bread and creme brûlée. The mouthfeel is very fresh and fruity with just a touch of yeasty, creamy texture. Lots of tropical fruits do the samba with the lovely little buttles from the Méthode Champenoise. There is brilliant acidity and texture in the mid-palate.

In 2014 we asked Wallula Vineyard to plant 2.5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon in the Goldilocks region of the vineyard: not too hot, not to cold, … 2017 is our first and limited bottling from our block.

À Bloc is a cycling term that means "to go all out, even beyond the point of recovery" (do not forget the diacritical mark above the À, it sounds like "ahhh"). It is also a metaphor for the winemaking at Isenhower Cellars.
