2011 Mourvèdre

Mourvèdre is a meaty, full-bodied red wine that is typically used in Rhone style blends. In this lighter bodied version, we blend in Grenache and a touch of Lemberger. This wine has aromas of tobacco, violet, raspberry leaf and an underlying hint of gravel. White pepper on the palate and red plums turn to rich strawberry flavors on the finish.

2011 Lemberger

Also known as Blaufrankisch, Lemberger was a favorite of Dr. Walter Clore: “the father of Washington wine.” He encouraged the grape’s planting throughout the Yakima Valley AVA, which is exactly the source of the grapes for this big, red wine. Rich in tannins, this wine reveals aromas of pepper, fig and ripe boysenberries. On the palate, the wine delivers smoked meat, ripe stone cherries and and a light peppery spice.
