``Pearlescent`` Cabernet Franc Rosé

$40 _ $34 _ $32

Off-dry and juicy, this pale pink wine takes you on a journey! We let the deeply purple skins of the Cabernet Franc sit on the juice for 8-10 hours, picking up a blush of color before fermenting in stainless steel. Beautifully balanced residual sugar and acid make this an amazing patio pounder! Great with spicy noodles, crab, and blue cheese.

``Dog Day`` Chardonnay

$38 _ $32 _ $30

Chardonnay is well known in the United States, partially because it's the grape that inspired our wine industry's first international accolades back in the 1960s and partially because of its immense flexibility. While it is still beloved decades later, many winemakers have changed their stylistic approach! Instead of creating a very buttery, oaky Chard, we've opted for a cleaner build - dry, juicy, and fruit forward with a hint of toast. Gold Medal!

In honor of Scoobie and Skylar, the best winery dogs we could have asked for, we donate a portion of the proceeds to the local ASPCA!

``Mirage`` Merlot

$48 _ $41 _ $38

Washington Merlot has two different styles, depending on the AVA - weighty and black fruit-forward with more of a tar/creosote profile or high-toned and red fruit-forward, leaning into a bright cherry build. Anyone familiar with how our winemaker tailors our wines will be unsurprised that the ``Mirage`` is firmly in the red fruit camp! Medium bodied with moderate acidity, this is a bottle that would fit well with flat iron steak and a corn and zucchini salad.

``Dynamique`` Cabernet Franc

$48 _ $41 _ $38

Cabernet Franc is one of the six noble Bordeaux grapes, valued for its finessed tannins and exquisite nose. While it's often used in blends, a solid stand-alone Cabernet Franc has charm and elegance to offer. Its medium-high acidity makes it an ideal food pairing wine! Chicken or pork, beef or lamb, hard cheese or soft, even steaky fish - you really can't go wrong.

``Red Satin`` Cabernet Sauvignon

$55 _ $47 _ $44

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 with dark red fruits and a velvety mouthfeel. Full of finesse and structure, the ``Red Satin`` pairs as beautifully with braised short ribs and lamb shanks as it does your classic burger. Silver Medal!

``Ahh!`` Syrah

$65 _ $55 _ $52

A question we're often asked is what exactly the specialty of the Washington wine industry is! This is a tricky one to answer because our state's complex geological history of racy glaciers and spitfire volcanos has left us a legacy of absolutely rocking terroir. While all wines reflect terroir, Syrah corners tightly, metaphorically speaking. This combined with the hot summer days and cool nights of Eastern Washington results in a wine with the ripe fruit flavors so typical of the New World style woven seamlessly into the structure and fresh, dense core of Old World vintages. You could definitely wave Syrah over your head as a Washington specialty. Give this a try with triple cream brie or prime rib - you'll be thrilled! Silver Medal!


Blend: 100% Syrah
Appellation: Rattlesnake Hills
Vineyard: Dineen Vineyard

- Alcohol: 13.9%

``Temptress`` Tempranillo

$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 pork, its versatility lends itself to roasted vegetables and pasta just as well.


Blend: 100% Tempranillo
Appellation: Rattlesnake Hills
Vineyard: Elephant Mountain

- Alcohol: 13.7%

``Pure Velvet`` Petit Verdot

$60 _ $51 _ $48

One of the six noble grapes of Bordeaux, this varietal is redolent with structure. Old World blends typically use small amounts of Petit Verdot due to its inherent bossiness, but the warmer climes of the New World create a riper, fuller bottling. As a stand alone varietal, this pairs magnificently with big, beefy dishes, including anything spiced. Gold Medal!


Blend: 100% Petit Verdot
Appellation: Rattlesnake Hills
Vineyard: Dineen
Wine Analysis
- Alcohol: 13.8%
- pH: 3.70
- Total Acidity: 0.56 grams/100 ml
