2019 PROPRIETARY BLEND
 
2019 started out like any other, with the potential of an earlier harvest than the previous year. With that expectation we were ready in August to begin to bring in fruit, but the weather around the Walla Walla Valley changed on us coming into the end of August and we experienced a freeze in October. While the temperature change surprised us, it allowed the fruit to ripen slowly and many varietals around Washington truly blossomed.

Featuring all five classic Bordeaux varietals, this traditional blend is derived entirely from the famed Minnick Hills Vineyard. Dark red fruit abounds and is complemented by notes of fresh sage, graphite, and sweet Tahitian vanilla. Integrated and complex, the mid-palate offers flavors of ripe currant, cola, and fresh herbs. Fine tannins define the lengthy and complex finish. This wine will cellar well for 20+ years and pairs well with a Porterhouse or Ribeye grilled steak.

"This vineyard is our main attraction for Bordeaux Varietals in Walla Walla Valley. We always know that we can count on the Minnick Vineyard for world-class Walla Walla Valley grapes."

Cody Janett, Winemaker
