Columbia Rediviva, Phinny Hill Vineyard 2013
It has been a decade now since we started making our Columbia Rediviva exclusively using grapes from our Phinny Hill Vineyard.  In that time, one of our true delights as winegrowers has been to see how wonderfully our cabernet vines have come into their own, yielding wines with gorgeous structure, rich, juicy flavors and impeccably balanced tannins. As a result, our Columbia Rediviva has become one of our most celebrated bottlings, earning numerous "Top 100," "Year's Best," "Editor's Choice" and "Cellar Selection" honors.  Like all of the wines in this release, our 2013 vintage has yet to be reviewed; however, the 2012 vintage was named a "Top 100 Washington Wine" by Seattle Met, earned 93 points and was called a "head turner" by Wine Advocate, and received 92-point scores from Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Vinous. Featuring 85% cabernet, our 2013 Columbia Rediviva is a showstopper. From its beautiful floral and red fruit aromas to its silky structure and mesmerizing core of blackberry and cassis flavors, it is both poised and voluptuous. We can't wait for you to try it!

Sémillon, Sauvignon & Muscadelle 2015
Because we love dynamic wines with tantalizing acidity, and fresh inviting flavors, we have always sought out cooler vineyards. In fact, we have found that the combination of cool vineyards and hot years has resulted in some of the most exciting whites we have ever produced, yielding wines that marry our fresh, alluring style with a compelling depth and textural richness. Combining grapes from the legendary Boushey Vineyard with fruit from Lonesome Spring Ranch and the oldest block of Rosebud Ranch on the Wahluke Slope, this wine shows why this classic blend of white Bordeaux varieties is so complex and compelling. The core of sémillon provides eloquent white flower, golden fig, and honey notes, while the sauvignon and muscadelle contribute layers of rose, jasmine, and orange spice. Firm acid adds an almost architectural undercurrent, keeping this wine delightfully pure and focused.

Conner Lee Vineyard Chardonnay 2015
For us, the famed Conner Lee Vineyard delivers all of the qualities we prize in a great chardonnay. Like our Sémillon, Sauvignon & Muscadelle, our 2015 Conner Lee Vineyard Chardonnay offers an ideal meeting point between power and grace. Lush and intensely aromatic, with beautiful layers of white flowers, tangerine, beeswax, and tropical fruit, it is full and rich on the palate. At the same time, Conner Lee's cool, high-elevation climate shines through, adding complex layers of minerality to the pure and vivid flavors. Made using grapes from the vineyard's prized 1989 block, as well as its 2005 "clone #95" block, there is an underlying complexity to this wine that adds nuance and dimension to the brilliant flavors. Food & Wine selected the 2014 vintage as a "Top Pick: Over $30," calling it "outstanding."  We think the 2015 vintage is even better!
 
Rockgarden Estate Mourvèdre, Syrah & Grenache 2014
When we debuted the inaugural vintage of this mourvèdre-based blend last year, it was an immediate hit. It was also a wine that sparked a lot of excitement and conversation. Though it offered fascinating layers of meat and minerality, its energy and ebullience challenged people's notions about what to expect from a Rhône blend, with Stephen Tanzer giving it 91 points and praising its "lovely lift and juicy acidity" in Vinous. But, of course, this isn't just a Rhône blend—it's Rhône meets The Rocks District, and that's a very different beast. Like the 2013 vintage, the 2014 leaps from the glass, revealing layers of wild black raspberry, kirsch, plum, smoke and spicy black pepper. While it possesses all of the sumptuous savory notes that make Rhône reds so fascinating, there is a radiance and vitality to this blend that we believe makes it purely of "The Rocks." If you didn't try this wine last year, we hope you will this time around. It's something special.
 
Thank you for your continued support, and may autumn fill your home with joy, abundance, and delicious wine.

Many cheers,

Nina, Chris, Lindsey, and Paul
