2018 Spring Release Wines:
- 6-bottle club members: 1 bottle of each of the 6 new wines listed below
– 12-bottle club members: 2 bottles of each of the 6 wines listed below
2017 Cabernet Franc, Copeland Vineyard ($30/$24 club), 11.9% abv – this is an amazing vintage, with more texture and a little more red fruit. After 7 vintages of Franc at this vineyard, I think it is in the top 3. 20% whole-cluster, unfiltered.
2017 Côt, Dineen Vineyard ($26/$20.80 club), 11.2% abv – Now that we do 2 different vineyard versions of this grape (aka Malbec), it is so cool that the wines are almost polar opposites of each other, but fit together perfectly and both have a place at the dinner table. This one is the more savory and lighter-bodied one. A very unique wine that’s fun to drink. Reminds me a lot of the 2014, which is one of my favorites. 100% whole-cluster.
2017 Gerwürztraminer Orange, Oak Ridge Vineyard ($26/$20.80 club), 12.7% abv – the return of the orange wine! We started working with Oak Ridge vineyard and their expressive, older-vine rendition of this grape last year and we feel like we are working with 2 of the most passionate farmers in WA. 100% Organically Certified grapes. This version was fermented on the skins and so the aromatics are Gerwüztraminer, but the skin-contact adds another dimension of flavors, tannins, and texture. 16-days skin contact.
2017 Grüner Veltliner, Underwood Mountain Vineyards ($21/16.80 club), 12% abv - In a way, having any of this wine this year is a miracle, due to the very difficult harvest conditions in this area of the Columbia Gorge. The wine turned out well and shows a different side of the grape than the last vintage, a little drier and a little more pepper on the nose. We expect this has some room for development, with time in the bottle.
2017 “Cru Carbonic” Cabernet Franc, Red Willow Vineyard ($34/$27.20 club), 12.7% abv (**wine-club only** 1 bottle per 6 bottle purchase, while supplies last) – This wine was made from grapes from the same vineyard block as our Cabernet Franc Rosé, but picked 11 days later. The name is a stylistic nod to the Cru Beaujolais Gamay wines of France, that we are so enamored with. (Not a Nouveau!) A very distinctive wine with a tiny allocation of only 42 cases. 100% whole-cluster, unfiltered.
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Willow Vineyard ($35/$28 club),14.2% abv – this wine has had a few years to settle in and we think it is ready to be unleashed. Powerful but elegant, aromatic and meaty, purity of fruit, along with great acidity. A very “Red Willow” expression. Unfiltered.
