A combination of three of our favorite vineyard sites (StoneTree, Les Collines and Alder Ridge Vineyards), chosen for the unique flavors and aromas they bring to the wine. This is a wine meant to be enjoyed with food and friends. Be sure to have an extra bottle or two of our 2007 Zinfandel on hand... Zinfandel is a huge favorite among fans of Washington wine and we sell out early each vintage. You don't want to run out of wine before you run out of food!
StoneTree Vineyard is on the Wahluke Slope, a warm site chosen for the white pepper and spice qualities in the fruit. Les Collines Vineyard, on the foothills of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla Valley, adds bold flavors and perfume to the blend. The third vineyard is Alder Ridge Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills along the North shore of the Columbia River. This wonderful site brings rich, cherry jam characteristics as well as clean minerality to the wine.
