Intense ruby color and deep red berry flavors develop on the palate. Lively acidity provides length, and the typical focused Walla Walla tannins offer weight and depth to the structure. Exotic spice notes such as nutmeg, mocha, and oak nuance enrich the finish.
We are excited to release our first wine produced 100% from the Grenache Taptiel Vineyard in the Red Mountain AVA of the Columbia Valley. This 100% Grenache, 2016, starts with a subtle earthy nose. It is medium bodied with beautiful garnet color and candied plum notes. The finish lingers on hints of leather and tar.
