"Marie-Eve Gilla is winemaker at this Walla Walla winery established in 2001. Born in France & married to Gilles Nicault of Long Shadows, Marie-Eve has been making wine in Washington State since the early 1990s. Her winemaking is French in orientation aimed at producing wines of balance, elegance & refinement…the vineyard-designates all stood out.”

It has densely concentrated fruit on the palate with ripe flavors & hints of new oak. Aged in 60% French oak & 40% Hungarian oak, it has soft, round tannins & a moderately fine finish. 91 Points"
