2015 Merlot

Yakima Valley

As soon as this wine is poured, it looks like it can’t wait to be tasted. Bright, sparkling, and deep purple in color, the wine in your glass wants you to love it. The scent of mocha jumps out of the glass and is soon joined by clove and plum, with a little cookie dough!

The fruit-forward palate is full of flavor: black cherry, ripe plum and blackberry. Raspberry, clove and caramel linger on the finish.

A deliciously rich and dry Merlot that only Washington fruit can produce. Supple and elegant, this is a barrel-matured wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for a few years.

80% Merlot, 15% Blaufränkisch, 5% Dolcetto

Suggested Food Pairings: Roast turkey, pork tenderloin, grilled veal chops, lamb shoulder with lemon gremolata, roast duck, charred beets and herbs, and roasted tomatoes – or your favorite pizza. With medium tannin and not too much acidity, you’ll find Merlot pairs well with light meats as well as lightly spiced dark meat, cheeses, and vegan dishes.

2016 Cascade

Columbia Valley

This Rhône inspired blend could be mistaken for an easy-to-love cross between Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer. Lychees and dried apricots come to mind

Bright, shiny, and reflective in appearance, Cascade’s long-lasting aromas of banana, pineapple, lime blossom, honeysuckle, and nutmeg ‘cascade’ out of the glass!

Creamy Viognier flavors of stone fruit, white peach, and apricot blend deliciously with the classic Roussanne notes of honey, melon, and herbs. Don’t be surprised to find yourself thinking you taste a little bit of Seville marmalade!

Viognier and Roussanne come from the Rhône Valley, but until the late 1980s, Viognier was grown almost exclusively around the village of Condrieu in the Northern Rhône. Roussanne is grown mainly in Southern Rhône and Provence.

47% Roussanne, 44% Viognier, 9% Riesling

Suggested Food Pairings:

  • Meat/fish: Poached salmon, savory orange chicken, and pork chop with apricot sauce.
