2016 Reserve

We love Bordeaux style blended wines. Each year, we begin choosing the blend for the Reserve with the entire vintage available to make our favorite blend.

We lead with Merlot as the base, blending in Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. All the grapes from Scooteney Flats, the vineyard right across the street from our winery on Red Mountain.

Tasting notes

On the nose, strawberry, cranberry, and a hint of vanilla. Our fullest bodied wine leading with ripe black berry, cherry, and caramel on the finish.

Rand Sealey
Review of Washington Wines

Composed of 44% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% each of Cab Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, this wine exhibits a deep ruby-crimson color and lovely, perfumed aromas of blackberries, huckleberries, cherries, Damson plums, crushed roses, sweet pea flowers, tobacco, cedar, violets and oriental incense. On the palate, the dark fruit flavors are elegant and refined, yet robust, underlain with licorice, dark chocolate, French roast and Red Mountain earth. The velvety textured back reveals sensations of macerated berries, roasted nuts, mocha, toffee, lanolin (“legs”), graphite and toasty oak (75% new French) followed by a long, satiny tannin finish. 19/20 points.
