Flavors of Bing cherry, black peppercorns, leather, cedar, and vanilla give way to clove, earth, and dark fruits. Pleasant crisp tannins and juicy acidity make this wine delightful on its own or with a meal. Enjoy now through 2018.
2012 brought a return to the classic eastern Washington vintage conditions and a departure from the previous two cooler years experienced in the area. Budbreak was slightly ahead of average and a cool start to the summer slightly delayed vine development. In late July, warm and dry conditions returned and lasted through mid-October, allowing the fruit to ripen in an ideal situation.
