2016 Sauvignon Blanc, Red Willow Vineyard, Yakima Valley (Regular $20, Club $16) – 10-year-old vines planted at the western edge of Red Willow vineyard, at a 1,100 feet elevation and facing SE. Soils are sandy loam. The 1-acre block contains a field-blend of 8 Sauvignon Blanc clones, including Sauvignon Musque, and other French and Italian clones. Grapes were picked on August 25 and whole-cluster pressed into 85% stainless-steel tank and 15% neutral barrels, to ferment with native yeast. This vintage is reminiscent of the 2013 vintage, flinty, with a fresh crisp minerality and subtle nuttiness. 12.1% abv. 350 cases.
2016 Cabernet Franc, Copeland Vineyard, Rattlesnake Hills (Regular $28, Club $22.40) – 17-year old vines, from the same vineyard we started with in the 2011. Situated at almost 1,300 ft elevation on sandy rocky soils. Like all our wines, the wine is made without any manipulation of the fruit at the winery and all-natural fermentation. 12.5% abv. 341 cases.
2016 Syrah, Red Willow Vineyard, Yakima Valley (Regular $28, Club $22.40) – Red Willow Vineyard was the first vineyard in Washington state to plant Syrah, back in 1988. We have the utmost respect for the Sauer family and their long legacy of grape farming in the Washington state wine scene. This is our first Syrah from the vineyard, from a new site known as the “lavender block”, on the Marcoux hill, using cuttings from those original vines. So this is just 3-year old fruit. It clocks in at a lower alcohol level rarely seen in WA Syrah, 12.4%, and has Red Willow aromatics of brine, mulled cherry, and meat. The wine was fermented using 50% whole clusters and aged in neural barrels for 4 months. 12.4% abv. 262 cases.
2016 Riesling, Underwood Mountain Vineyards, Columbia Gorge (Regular $22, Club $17.60) – Our 2013 vintage was named White Wine of the Year in Seattle Magazine. Bright acidity balances the just off-dry character of the wine, offering layered tones of tangerine, apricot, and wet stone. Try with spicy Thai or Indian food.
2016 Côt (Malbec), Dineen Vineyard, Rattlesnake Hills (Regular $28, Club $22.40) – Côt (pronounced ‘Coh’) is the name for the Malbec grape in the cool-climate Loire Valley. This lighter-bodied version of the wine was crafted through whole-cluster, native fermentation and shows aromas of red berries and spice.
2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, 7-Mile Vineyard, Rattlesnake Hills (Regular $28, Club $22.40) – An aromatic cab from 25-year old-vines, that shows bright red fruit, varietal character and makes a great food-pairing wine. 13.7% abv
