Our single vineyard blends explore the primacy of vineyard over varietal. Using the Bordeaux varietals from each vineyard, we produce blends to express that site. The differences between the vineyard wines are of particular interest.
These new varietal wines are a pure expression of the characteristics of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as grown in Washington State. They take us full circle to our beginnings in 1989 when we only produced single varietals. They represent a combination of tradition and renewed excitement to express their essence.
