VINEYARDS: Columbia Valley, Washington
WINEMAKING: Greg Koenig, Consulting Winemaker. Fruit parcels from our Rhone varietal vineyards were vinified separately. After free-run, light-skin contact and fermentation in tank, partial malolactic fermentation occurred during barrel maturation in a mix of steel as well as new and old barriques - French, American and Hungarian oak in origin - for a period of 9 months. The wine experienced a light filtration, fining, and cold stabilization prior to bottling. Bottled: June 2016.
