Our 18th vintage of this classic Bordeaux-style blend delivers another spectacular wine that showcases the best of the Walla Walla Valley. Crafted from our finest barrels and favorite lots of fruit, this wine begins with inviting aromas of black cherries, plum, clove, vanilla and dark chocolate. Flavors of black cherry, spice, and sweet herbs are framed with supple, elegant tannins. Patience in the cellar will be rewarded. Drink 2021-2029.
