``Cloud 9`` Riesling

$28 _ $24 _ $22

Floral and lively on the nose with a crisp, clean profile - off dry but given tons of appeal by its delicate acidity! This balanced Riesling is capable of pairing with many foods, stand outs being stinky cheese or spicy noodle dishes. As the weather warms, though, all you really need is a porch and a couple of friends!

``Pearlescent`` Cabernet Franc Rosé

$38 _ $32 _ $30

Our rosé is made from Cabernet Franc grapes that were picked slightly early to maintain the ideal acid balance. After destemming the grapes, the deeply purple skins “kiss” the juice for 8 to 10 hours to transfer a blush of color. Lively aromas of fresh strawberries, nectarines, and melon make this one of our favorites, no matter the season! Fantastic with a goat cheese and pecan salad topped by grilled salmon.

``Mirage`` Merlot

$46 _ $39 _ $37

Washington Merlot is marked by its richness and brightness, weight and balance - and a dark, vibrant flavor profile that makes it the match of many a Cabernet Sauvignon.

A complex and beautifully integrated bottle, this will pair wonderfully with beef stew or shepherd's pie.

``Z-Spot`` Zinfandel

$58 _ $49 _ $47

Zinfandel is thought to be one of the oldest grape varietals from which wine is still being made, dating back to 6000 BC. It is grown all over the world, passed from Croatia to Italy (known there as Primitivo) to Austria to the United States. Our ``Z-Spot`` is plenty bright and grippy while still light enough to open year-round! Medium bodied with a mouthwatering aroma of cherry, cedar shavings, and smoke, this ravishing Zinfandel will dress up any dinner. Barbecue, stuffed eggplant, pulled pork - you can't go wrong!

``Dynamique`` Cabernet Franc

$48 _ $41 _ $38

Chicken or pork, beef or lamb, hard cheese or soft, even hearty fish - you really can't go wrong. Double Gold Medal!

``Red Satin`` Cabernet Sauvignon

$50 _ $43 _ $40

Cabernet Sauvignon is everywhere, a perennial favorite due to its complex profile and big body. In Washington, however, the hot days and cool nights produce a premier experience of Cab - supple and rich, dark red fruits leading to a velvety mouth feel. Full of finesse and structure, the ``Red Satin`` pairs beautifully with braised short ribs and lamb shanks as well as it does your classic burger.

``Poet`` Blend

$60 _ $51 _ $48

Tempranillo hails originally from Spain, mainly the Rioja and Ribrera del Duero regions, but has been grown in Washington for almost thirty years. This grape thrives in higher altitudes and especially loves the cool summer nights of Yakima Valley. With the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and the subtle, savory heft of Carignan, this wine ticks a lot of boxes. Known for how well it pairs with red meat and ham, its versatility lends itself to roasted vegetables and pasta just as well. Silver Medal!

``Maverick`` Malbec

$60 _ $51 _ $48

Originally from France but now often recognized in the same breath as Argentina, Malbec is a finicky grape with promise of a robust profile. Thin skinned with a predilection towards ailments, Malbec grapes require sun above all else and handle cold very poorly, which makes summer in Eastern Washington an ideal climate.

Done right, Malbec unfolds in your mouth like a luxurious silk shawl! Our ``Maverick`` is plummy and dense, full bodied with dark fruit and a touch of meatiness. Pair with a juicy ribeye and chimichurri potatoes! Gold Medal!


Blend: 100% Malbec
Appellation: Rattlesnake Hills
Vineyard: Dineen
Wine Analysis
- Alcohol: 13.8%
- pH: 3.8
- Total Acidity: 0.56 grams/100 ml
