Our luxury line, Anvil, is dedicated to highlight Washington State’s most sought-after vineyards in their best vintages. Sometimes a varietal, sometimes a blend; always lush, rich, and complex. Anvil is for the discerning enthusiast who appreciates traversing the nuances of origin among timeless classics.
Planted in 1983, Klipsun Vineyard is located on the southwestern edge of Red Mountain overlooking the Yakima River, where it receives the intense light of the afternoon sun. Frequent breezes stress the vines further. It is one of Washington’s warmest, driest vineyard locations. In combination with silty sand and shallow soils, these factors produce very ripe grapes with intense concentration, abundant flavor, and depth.
One of our oldest vineyards to source from, Klipsun consistently yields Cabernet Sauvignon showing great power and intense fruit flavors in its produced wine.
A medium to full bodied lush, rich and complex wine.
