2019 Blackboard Red Wine

The 2019 Blackboard Red Wine was crafted from several vineyards across two AVAs in Washington State: Royal Slope (51%) and Columbia Valley (49%). Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were hand-harvested in the early fall mornings of 2019. Upon arrival at the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted and destemmed. The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, with three months on oak (25% new French oak). After extensive evaluation by our winemaking team, 6,240 cases were produced.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful notes of currants, spice, raspberry jam, strawberry, and pureed plum. Hints of vanilla bean, cocoa powder, and macerated berries carry the palate. A darker fruit wine with soft tannins and surprising complexity. A great window into a warm vintage here in Washington State.
