Tasting Notes


2022 Dry Lake Vineyard Pinot Gris – Lake Chelan  - Almond, clove, and faint honeyed aromas dancing with delicate floral notes of honeysuckle. The Meyer lemony citrus flavor offers a refreshing acidity and a weighty feeling on the middle of your tongue.  The medium body & oily texture of the wine - makes it possible to pair with heavier and more flavorful dishes with spices and/or honey. $25/bottle

2022 Rosé of Syrah – Columbia Valley - A dark orange/pink color with notes of Jolly Rancher Watermelon, overly ripe strawberry, orange, hibiscus, and a hint of allspice. Moderately high acidity, but surprisingly dry on the tongue.  Serve cold to keep it zesty.   Perfect pairing with this wine would be takeout Greek Gyros with dill tzatziki. $25/bottle

2020 Tempranillo – Ancient Lakes - Medium-bodied with a deep ruby red hue. Medium-high acidity, structured tannins combined with complex layers of rich red fruit notes from start to finish.  Notes of red and black cherry, raspberry, tomato sauce, cigar box and dried fig.  A great balance between earth and fruit. $35/bottle

2018 Stillwater Creek Merlot – Columbia Valley - Boisterous black cherry and overly ripe plum with supple tannins and a chocolatey finish. Best paired with rack of lamb, roasted veal, or filet mignon with peppercorn red wine sauce. $35/bottle
