2005 Syrah - Power & Glory
This blend of 89% Syrah, 6% Mourvedre, and 5% Grenache is our foremost example of these varieties. We blended Rhone grapes from four distinctive appellations to make this cuvee. Syrah from Walla Walla Valley and Red Mountain, Mourvedre from the Wahluke Slope, and Grenache from the Horse Heaven Hills produced this enticing wine of both Power, and Glory.
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.
2001 Cuvee Alexander
Bright aromas of Chambord, cassis, pencil lead, damp earth and mocha are framed by toasty oak, toffee and barrel spice. In the mouth it displays juicy black cherry and ripe plum flavors
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 Maison Malbec 1.5L
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!
2005 Syrah - Destiny Ridge Vnyd
This blend of 77% Syrah, and 23% Grenache is from the block 17 of the Destiny Ridge Vineyard, in the Horse Heaven Hills. Two different clones of Syrah were blended with Grenache to create a wine of stunning complexity, structure and richness.
