2017 North by Northwest Columbia Valley Red Blend
A pleasing bouquet greets the nose with notes of plum, blackberry jam, chocolate, toast, roasted coffee, vanilla, perfumed violets, pepper, anise and baking spices. Up front the wine starts out round and robust with a silky weightiness that carries flavors of plum, prunes, cinnamon, blackberry, toast, mocha, tobacco, currant, pepper and blueberry. The mid-palate features good weight and depth. Tannins firm up slightly, without being astringent or drying, for a luscious finish.

We partner with like minded vineyard owners who practice sustainable agriculture. Our guiding principle is simple: Produce a wine of outstanding quality to delight wine lovers everywhere.
