Black olives, plums, violets and wet granite on the nose, with a savoury whisper of cured peppered beef. The palate manages to be dark and bright all at once. Intense plum and blueberry fruit, black olive tapenade and crushed peppercorns all beaten with leather and cured meat. Perfumed notes of purple flowers, cloves and cinnamon. The texture is silky and balanced perfectly with the classic structure. This is a wine with resonance. It hums like a pulsar orbiting the centre of a black hole.

Tasting Notes

With only 240 hectares under vine, the Red Mountain AVA (American Viticultural Area) is one of the smallest wine growing regions in the States. Though minuscule, its wines are superb. Technically part of the Columbia River Valley, it is a microclimate of awesome, with southwest facing slopes that get more sunlight than any other spot in Washington State. At night the temperature plummets, lengthening the ripening season and giving grapes superb sugar/acid balance. The soils are loess gravel with a multitude of sedimentary variables left from the retreat of the last ice age. A tiny place perfect for making complex, classically structured, beautiful red wines.
