2018 Cuvée

The 2018 Cuvée was crafted from several vineyards across the Columbia Valley, Walla Walla and Red Mountain AVAs. Farmed using sustainable practic- es, they were hand-harvested in the early mornings September 21- November 2, 2018. Each cluster was hand-sorted, berry-sorted, and then fermented in a combination of concrete and stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine was moved to French oak barrels for cellaring. After 40 individual eval- uations by our winemaking team, only 37 barrels were bottled in early October 2020.

Tasting Notes

Red and black currants, spiced plum and black cherry. Swirling brings up red fruits and sandalwood. Fresh, but ripe, with bright fruit and good tension. Long and smooth tannins with a finish of plum, blackberry and vanilla bean spice.
