  Ahler Vineyard Syrah
The 2003 vintage of Ahler Vineyard Syrah is a well-structured wine with black licorice, ripe strawberries and rich tannins. This Walla Walla Valley Syrah shows a lot of power through the mid-palate and lingers to a mouthwatering finish. This wine is great now but will continue to improve with additional cellaring.
  Biscuit Ridge Vineyard Late Harvest Gewurztraminer
The 2005 Late Harvest Gewurztraminer mimics past vintages. Tropical fruit flavors explode in honeyed richness. The increased hang-time allowed the distinctive nuances of this spicy grape to blossom. The residual sugar of 8.5% in this wine lends itself well as a dessert wine.
  Boushey Vineyard Syrah
The 2003 Boushey Vineyards Syrah is a complex wine sourced from Boushey Vineyards located in the Yakima Valley. This well-built Syrah shows beautiful notes of white pepper, boysenberry and cedar. Beautifully balanced, this wine features layers of complexities.
  Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Champoux Vineyard has done it yet again. Consistent, exquisite quality has proven this to be one of the most exciting vineyards in Washington State. Black cherry, dark chocolate and a hint of green olive exemplify the beauty of our 2004 Champoux Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. Firm tannins suggest this wine will age gracefully into the future.
  Chelle den Millie Vineyard Cabernet Franc
90-Wine & Spirits Magazine, October 2006 "From a Yakima Valley vineyard just north of Prosser, this is textbook cabernet franc, aromatic with bright, peppery red cherry fruit. Light-bodied and delightfully straightforward with a texture that's more about acid and brightness than tannin, it's reminiscent of Loire Valley examples. Uncork for lamb chops."
  Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of eight different vineyards from throughout the Columbia Valley. Dark chocolate and black berry take possession of this well structured wine. It finishes with polished tannins and rich fruit. This is a fine example of what Washington State can produce.
  Columbia Valley Chardonnay
The 2005 Chardonnay combines fruit from around the Columbia Valley. Blending allows us to capture unique nuances from around our growing region and bring them together in one exemplary wine. Clove and pineapple aromas lead to subtle honeysuckle flavors. Gentle stirring of the lees, barrel aging and malolactic fermentation all contribute to the wine’s round mouthfeel and smooth finish.
  Columbia Valley Meritage Red
Meritage is an invented word, neither French nor English that combines "merit" and "heritage" (and rhymes with heritage). This wine has been seamlessly blended, showing rich concentration with mouthfuls of bright red fruit, coffee and cocoa. Round complex tannins will allow for our Red Meritage to age gracefully into the future. Our 2003 blend uses five of the major noble grape varietals, which only adds to its intrigue.
  Columbia Valley Meritage White
White Meritage wines are blends made from traditional Bordeaux white varietals. Our blend consists of 72% Sauvignon Blanc, 28% Semillon. Vibrant lemon, citrus zest and clean minerality mingle on the palate. Sur lie aging in small French oak barrels adds depth to the finish.
  Columbia Valley Merlot
The 2003 Columbia Valley Merlot is a beautifully balanced wine. Cocoa, black cherry and vanilla are among the many characteristics that typify this Merlot. This complex wine is very approachable now but will continue to develop with age. The fruit is sourced from six different vineyards from throughout the Columbia Valley.
  Columbia Valley Reserve Merlot
The 2001 Columbia Valley Reserve Merlot has ripe fruit and concentrated flavors of dark chocolate, black cherries and vanilla. This wine has a long, rich finish, adding to its complexity. Look for this wine to mature gracefully in bottle. The fruit was sourced from two well-established, award-winning vineyards: Champoux Vineyard and Conner-Lee Vineyard.
  Columbia Valley River's Red
The 2004 River’s Red, is made from a collection of fruit from many different vineyards and varietals sourced throughout the Columbia Valley. It has been aged in primarily in small French oak barrels, which have added to its complexity. This wine is approachable with bright cherry fruit.
  Columbia Valley Syrah
The 2003 Columbia Valley Syrah has been sourced from four different vineyards from throughout the Columbia Valley. This Syrah, characterized by blackberries, white pepper and clove was aged for fifteen months in small French oak barrels.
  Estate Rose'
The 2005 Rose' is made exclusively from Cabernet Franc grapes grown on our Estate Vineyards, Biscuit Ridge and Three Rivers. The aroma opens with pink grapefruit and cranberries and finishes crisp and light. Enjoy this refreshing wine on hot summer days, on a picnic, or by the pool. Serve chilled.
  Pepper Bridge Vineyard Sangiovese
Pepper Bridge Vineyard is well recognized for producing premium wine grapes in Washington's Walla Walla Valley. This Sangiovese is an elegant, medium-bodied wine with upfront berry fruit and hints of tea and baking spices, this wine is sure to please. Aging for ten months in neutral French oak barrels has allowed the true varietal character to shine.
  Wahluke Slope Grenache
Showcasing the beautiful qualities of Grenache is what was intended with this wine. We have blended our Grenache with Syrah in the past but thought it was interesting enough to stand alone. In our 2005 Grenache, pie cherries and strawberry rhubarb pie entice the palate. This medium bodied wine goes great with a variety of foods.
