3L ANVIL Proprietary Blend

2017 3L ANVIL Proprietary Blend


The 2017 vintage was a difficult one to start, coming off one the coldest winters in Eastern Washington’s history. Despite a late frost our fruit survived. As Spring turned into Summer, Mother Nature delivered an ideal growing season, long enough for our fruit to fully ripen and short enough to ensure we could pick it before poor weather arrived.

In the vineyard

Minnick Hills Vineyard has really become a special vineyard in our hearts. When the fruits of our labor are combined they truly make a magnificent blend. Having worked these wines separately it was really interesting finally putting them together. They worked so well together to create a much larger picture. We are excited to see what this wine will become in the upcoming years.

In the glass

A beautifully deep ruby color in the glass, our Minnick Hills Blend begins with aromas of currant, red berries, complex floral notes and hints of fresh herbs and graphite. In the mouth you experience a lovely medium-bodied structure with refined tannins and balance. Red fruits abound and lead into the precise finish. A great wine to enjoy with steak, or other grilled meats and vegetables.
