Very small production only 1,500 cases, the 2017 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is special from Scenic valley. The aromas of this Pinot Noir begin with strawberry, and blackberry then broaden along the palate to include chalk, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and earth. The acid supports a complete, yet not overwhelming tannin balanced between skin and oak. The wine retains its velvet mouthfeel through a process of clarification by racking.
The Brady Vineyard Petite Sirah is rich and luxurious, featuring deep crimson color and aromas reminiscent of blackberry, and black pepper with subtle notes of roasted vanilla and spice. On tasting, it shows opulent texture and savory berry and bramble flavors that echo the aromas. The wine is luscious, full-bodied with balancing gentle acidity and just a hint of velvety oak that lengthens the finish.
Aromas of berries and dried herbs, new leather and vanilla with a hint of spice. Flavor is of blackberry preserves with a juicy mid-palate. Spicy white pepper, cherry, and plum finish with velvety tannins.
From Langudoc-Roussouillon Region this is a medium bodied sauvignon blanc that certainly over delivers for the price point. Crisp and clean with some moderate to mild acidity on the finish this wine is a perfect sipper or will pair perfect with some cheese or meats as an appetizer.
A collection of mountain fruit farmed at elevations of 1,200 to 2,400 feet. Aged on oak 12+ months. These high tannin wines are rich and complex. This Chardonnay has notes of pear, green apple, melon and citrus with undertones of lightly toasted coconut, oak, caramel and a long, juicy finish.
Milbrant Red Blend is 41% Syrah, 25% Malbec, 21% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Pioneer of the Columbia Valley wine region, Butch Milbrandt saw potential in Eastern Washington. He’s one of the first to drive a stake into what is now known as a world-class wine destination. This red blend is focused and generous, open textured and inviting, offering cherry, currant, red plum, and raspberry jam flavors.
Rich vibrant purple and red hues present in this wine. Cassis, black cherry and ripe black plumb combine with black pepper, and mocha with a hint of black olive. Flavors of juicy blackberry and cassis are encompassed with black licorice and slightly toasted oak. This is a structured Cabernet with length, flavor, and style.
