Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Opens with intense aromas of apples and melons, joined by signature characters of crème brulee, caramelized sugar and butterscotch. Ripe orchard fruit flavours are joined by creamy, buttery notes and balanced by lively acidity.

The 2015 vintage was one of the warmest growing seasons on record in Washington. Warm temperatures continued through the spring and summer, moderating slightly into fall and extending an early harvest. Overall, 2015 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing optimal ripening across varieties and yielding outstanding wines throughout the region. Aged for 8 months in a combination of new and one-to-three year old American and French oak."


Reviews for the 2014 vintage below…


90/100 Natalie MacLean, June 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"What's remarkable is the careful and personal detail each of the 6000 barrels get for this wine. They are all hand-stirred weekly when aging on the lees to add creamy texture and rich depth. Every wine is touched every week by the winemaking team for 8 months, a term the French call batonnage to extract flavour from the proteins and yeasts in the wine that would naturally settle on the bottom and not have much impact. This process really builds the mid-palate. This wine is 100% barrel-fermented. Aromas of butterscotch, toasty oak and golden apple."


87/100 & Best Buy Wine Enthusiast (2014 Vintage)
"Pineapple and mango aromas mix with notes of baking spices. The flavours show a fine sense of balance, tapering toward the finish. It's oak driven at times but provides a lot of enjoyment."
