The "Reckoning" has been one of the most appreciated of Washington's red blends since first produced by us in 2006. The 2011 version, a medium bodied wine with rich colors of dark raspberry and plum, nose of fresh made fruit jam and smoke, with evolving textures of currant, blackberry, tobacco and plum, complex lushness across the mid-palate, elegant sweet tannins, and a pleasing lift at the finish, is a wonderful compliment to rich Italian sauces and barbeque. It is just entering its drinking window now, should age nicely for another 15 plus years. 52% Merlot, 35% Cabernet, 13% Cabernet Franc.
Full red-ruby. Deep aromas of black fruits, licorice and nutty oak, complicated by a musky quality and a whiff of smoky minerality. A sweet, tactile, cleanly made midweight wine with a silky texture to its blackberry and lightly saline flavors. Plenty of flavor interest here. Finishes with a sweet dusting of tannins and good fruit persistence. This is the first vintage of 100% Malbec from Basel Cellars and looks to be a bottling to follow.
An estate blend of four blocks from our Pheasant Run Vineyard, each vinified to draw out characteristics of our varied terroir, then artfully blended to create this multi-layered wine. This wine exhibits complex fruit and oak, black currant and cherry cola with cardamom and vanilla. The texture is full and big, typical of a quality Eastern Washington Cabernet.
A wine for those who love good Merlot and a new perspective for those who don't. Walla Walla's climate is made for Merlot. Fruit ripens to perfection - not over-extracted, not too many tannins - but concentrated, with expressive characteristics. Elegant aromas of card stewed and dried fruits, pipe tobacco and exotic spices. The mouth gives generous flavors of plum, black-berry, caramelized sugar and mocha. The finish is deep and rich with long, smooth silky tannins.
Bright red ruby colors. Cassis, blueberry, mocha, licorice and rich spices on the nose, complemented by a touch of violet. Spicy and a bit tart, showing a savory character to its flavors of black fruits, brambles and spices. Acids and tannins in harmony with great Washington State fruit on the finish.
