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.

Pinot Gris, also know was Pinot Grigio and perhaps the most nuanced mutation of the noble Pinot Noir, produces flavorful wines with notable substance and color. This wine was fermented entirely in steel tanks. Early October storms in Vintage 2013 resulted in a grape harvest about two weeks earlier than usual, resulting in a wine with food-friendly acidity and citrus notes on the finish. It serves well as an aperitif or with fall salads, sliced fruits, a wide variety of cheeses and moderately seasoned fish.
2010 Cabernet Franc
Our 200 example is from Fred Artz' on Red Mountain, Chandler Reach, just a stone's throw up the Yakima Valley, and from Meek Family Vineyard near Benton City. This wine showcases some of the reasons that Cabernet Franc is beginning to turn heads. 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.
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!
2012 Estate Red Dessert- port style
Considering how long it will age and develop in the bottle, it's truly amazing how good the Wilridge Port tastes right now. The grapes were picked on October 20, 2012, and allowed to naturally ferment for 9 days. At 11 degrees residual sugar, fermentation was stopped by using the traditional Portuguese method of adding brandy to the fermenting must. The wine tasted good almost immediately after it was put in barrels, so Wilridge winemaker Paul Beveridge decided to treat it as a "Vintage Port" and bottled it on April 13, 2012. Only 127 cases were produced, so order yours today.
2012 Syrah Mourvédre
This wine is a homage to the great Rhône wine region in France. While the terroir in this Washington wine is New World, the wine making and vineyard care both stay true to old school European Organic & Biodynamic practices. Raise a glass to the French success with Syrah blending! It was their innovations and style that lead to this delicately balanced and uniquely Washington wine. Santé
