We’re projecting this to be your ultimate Holiday Season dinner red wine. It delivers what even the best Oregon Pinot Noirs only promise.
Prices: List $20/bottle, Tasting Room Club $18, Case/Mixed Case $17.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Our Grenache bounds with red berry flavors – bright strawberries and raspberries touched with notes of white pepper and lavender. Grenache is one of the most versatile food pairing wines due to its spiciness, and the myriad of depth and textures on the palate. It’s the extra-spicy finish on this medium bodied wine that makes our Grenache unique, expressing the Yakima Valley, WA, terroir. We find cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger on a lingering finish that will enhance but not overpower the array of Holiday dinner foods from your kitchen.
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: This is a rich and full-bodied wine that had extended skin contact before pressing and the start of fermentation – thus the slightly pinkish/appearance to the wine in your glass. We like producing Pinot Gris as a full-bodied wine to enhance the tree fruit aromas of pear and Crisp apple. The extended skin contact also matures the pear, mango and peach flavors inherent in most Pinot Gris grapes. One of the few wines we have on our list originating from Columbia Valley terroir, this wine ends in orange blossom, toasted nuts and a distinct minerality. The palate is bright with acidity and a rich texture that highlights a finish of baked apple and orange citrus.

The reason: It has to do with federal labeling laws. Prior to the 2011 harvest I “produced” my wines at Dakota Creek Winery (owned by my brother and sister-in-law) located near Blaine, WA. Because the pre-2011 wines were produced in Washington, I was able to label them accordingly.
Therefore, the only legal alternative for me at this point is to label our wines as “American” as the AVA.
