Saviah Cellars - Distinctive Wines from the Walla Walla Valley

This is my favorite vintage of our Big Sky Cuvée ever! Seamless and silky with aromas of red currant, cherries and plum enhanced by a delightful thread of savory herbs. This wine goes beautifully with elk, bison, or beef prime rib seasoned with freshly cracked pepper, sea salt and garlic.
