Notes of dried crushed herbs, leather, anise and some old fashioned strawberry hard candy on the nose which follow through on the palate. Moderate tannins frame a soft mouthfeel with more dark purple fruit, chocolate, and a touch of red cherry before a lightly spicy finish. Yum!

- Malbec 2013
Verhey Vineyard, Yakima Valley
Enticing scents of vanilla, black plum, sweet cherry, and pie crust followed by a lush mouthfeel redolent with rich black fruit, ripe purple plum, root beer overtones, some black olive and soft integrated tannins. This supple wine is beautifully balanced with a long spicy finish that begs the question...why wait?
- Intrigue 2013
40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Malbec, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Carménère
Deep and smooth are the touchstones of this year's vintage. Blackberry, fig, vanilla, and black currant predominate on the nose followed by a palate that is initially dry and clean, followed by juicy red fruit flavors leading to underlying fig, tobacco leaf, and wood. The strong structural support of tannins and acidity leads to a meaty finish of dark berries and plum that will make you want to stock up!

Spofford Station, Verhey, Corvus Vineyards,
The scent of sweet cherry, red licorice, and raspberry leaf invites a taste of this unique blend. Explore a mash of red fruit flavors and lots of plum that evolve into rich flavors of prune, mulberry, black olive, and a touch of mulling spice. With a juicy tannic finish, this wine is as delicious as it is special.
- Chardonnay 2015
"Ripe pear, banana and mango nectar on the nose, tempered by notes of creamy lemon chiffon, thyme and fresh herbs. These follow through on the bright and citrusy palate that has some creaminess followed by a long finish of banana candy and lots of lime zest. Downright tropical!
