Recent Accolades

2012 Mountain Cuvée

92 Points – Wine Enthusiast:
“Flavors of herbs, plum, oak spices and black currant offer impressive density and finish with a tart lick of acidity.” — S.S.  (9/1/2015)
Great Northwest Wine:
“Aromas of black currant, blackberry and plum with cocoa powder and dark toast. Inside, it’s a bold presentation of blackberry cobbler and blueberry, backed by rich tannins and pomegranate acidity. Enjoy now with well-marbled meats, but there will be further rewards in half a decade.”

2012 Sangiovese Grosso

Great Northwest Wine:
“Black cherry, black plums, fresh-from-the-vine blackberries and blood orange aromas pick up bittersweet chocolate and allspice. There’s racy acidity to the flavors of boysenberry and Montmorency cherry, while the nice heft of moderate tannins with a luscious spice component makes for a delicious pairing with a thick slab of lasagna.”

2012 Montagna Rossa

Double Gold – Seattle Wine Awards
Double Gold – Denver International Wine Competition
Great Northwest Wine:
“The nose hints at Bing cherry, cola and Red Vines licorice along with nectarine skin and minerality. On the palate, it’s clean and focused featuring Marionberry and blueberry, a combination that makes for a drink of sturdy tannins and juicy acidity which is finished by a pinch of horehound. It’s a food-friendly wine with plenty of staying power.”

2013 Primitivo

Great Northwest Wine:
“A spicy nose with white pepper among hints of red cherry, light cola and raspberry. This is a lighter-styled Primitivo with a smooth entry featuring flavors of Chelan cherry and vanilla with raspberry acidity and cherry-skin tannins. It’s nicely structured rather than sweet and boozy akin to some made in more southerly growing regions.”

2013 Cinsaut

Great Northwest Wine:
“In the glass, it takes on the appearance of a dark rosé, and it offers aromas of blood orange, dried strawberry, rhubarb pie and lemon ginger tea. On the palate, there are flavors of dried cherry and cranberry as pink grapefruit acidity easily pushes through the mild tannins to make this a very approachable wine.”
