2012 Estate Sangiovese
Sangiovese, “The Blood of Jove”. This Italian varietal has taken happily to the high terrain of Wilridge Vineyard in Naches Heights. This ancient varietal, known in 16th century Rome, is becoming a standard player here in Washington. The mineral and earth notes will take your senses to the windblown Cowiche Canyon, on top of which Wilridge Vineyard majestically thrives. We recommend inviting a hot date over to watch Sofia Loren movies, share a bowl of pasta and slowly sip this seductive wine.
Triomphe is a blend of extra-aged Cab Franc, and co-fermented Malbec & Petit Verdot from the Meek family vineyard near Benton City in the Yakima Valley. The three wines had enough "umph" to warrant the extra aging and we think you will appreciate the resulting depth, richness and complexity.
Grapes from 13 different vineyards, including four different grape varieties commonly blended into wines coming from the Bordeaux region France, comprise this wine. This wine incorporates the broad diversity of flavors available in the Columbia . While approachable early, this wine will age under favorable storage conditions for several more years. Accompanying foods should be boldly spiced, herbed and peppered!
Depth of color, flavor, mouth feel; raspberries, not black berries, high palate tones, not plums and cherries - these are marks of Cabernet Franc at its best and beautifully expressed in this vintage.
NV Sangiovese 1.5 liter
Wilridge is proud to present it's new line of "Maison" wines -- the first legally refillable wine bottles and kegs in Washington State since the enactment of Prohibition. Presently we feature a white blend, a red blend, and a rotating varietal (currently Sangiovese) in 1.5 liter refillable bottles and 20 liter (5 gallon) stainless steel kegs. These wines are "recession busters" meant for immediate consumption and priced at the equivalent of $10 a bottle -- $20 for the 1.5 liter magnum and $260 for the 20 liter (26.66 bottle) keg. A great deal on quality Washington wine!
2012 Viognier- Smasne Vineyard
The 2012 Viognier is straw yellow in color. The nose is redolent of white peaches and citrus fruits. The wine is off-dry and finishes with refreshing acitidy. It's medium bodied and meant for immediate enjoyment. Good on its own, the wine also pairs well with Asian cuisine and spicy foods. Try taking it to a picnic or barbecue on a warm summer's day.
