Of the "Bordeaux" varieties, Malbec is the most iconoclastic from our experience. Taste for near citrus elements and something that might be a cross between Syrah and Zinfandel.
For the first time since making Grâce we have blended all five Bordeaux varieties, namely: about 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, about 20% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Malbec and 2% Petite Verdot.
No "I'll have a Merlot" light weight kind of wine, this one. It's full of blackberry and cherry and is chewy - not to excess, with oak but definitely a wine that will be enjoyed most by folks who like to carry on a dialog with their wine.
This Gewürztraminer was created from the 1982 planting of Celilo Vineyard in the Columbia River Gorge. Old world methods combined with new world fruit produce a rich, aromatic Alsatian style wine.
A warm pie fresh from the oven. The acid of berries pairs nicely with a kick in this jammy treat of w wine.
blend of 60% Dolcetto, 20% Syrah & 20% Merlot
Our Madrona wine blend is graceful and with a touch of spice, is a versatile rich wine that is especially complimentary to your favorite Mediterranean recipe.
2006 Pinot Noir
Only two barrels of this beautifully balanced, pretty wine were made from this vintage. Bright cherry, strawberry, and raspberry aromas and flavors give way to pepper and earth tones on the lingering finish. Foods paired with this wine should be moderately herbed and spiced so as not to overwhelm the wine’s delicate nuances. Pouring at a temperature of about 62°F will yield optimum enjoyment. Santé!
2005 Syrah - Minick Vnyd
This rich and fulfilling Syrah opens with aromas of blackberry syrup, raspberry, leather, au jus and barrel toast. In the mouth is displays flavors of berry fruits, spice and cream, balanced with supple tannins and acidity.
