2023 Lonesome Spring Ranch Vineyard Rosé

$25 / $21.25 / $20

Our 2023 Lonesome Spring Ranch Rosé boasts a glittering, pale salmon pink hue that captures the eye. The nose delicately invites with whispers of orange blossoms intertwined with hints of early strawberries, fresh orange zest, kiwi, and stone fruit. On the palate the tang of pink grapefruit dances gracefully with the essence of spring berries and citrus delights — salmonberry, white cherry, white raspberry, and Meyer lemon. Each sip is clean and refreshing, enhanced with a subtle crushed gravel minerality, culminating in a finish that balances just the right amount of body with a lingering acidity that beckons for just one more taste.

2023 Les Collines Vineyard Grenache Blanc

$30 / $25.50 / $24

Our 2023 Grenache Blanc intrigues right off the bat with a delicate pale, coppery-gold hue. Aromas burst forth, with vivacious key lime, lychee, banana, honeydew, and subtle spices captivating the senses. On the palate a symphony of fresh fruits unfolds — tart yellow apple, honeydew, and lemon pith mingle with tropical hints of starfruit to create an enticing and harmonious medley. The texture is delightfully unctuous and mouth-filling, yet balanced by a zingy acidity that adds vibrancy and intrigue. We’re delighted to bring you this second iteration of a wine from this still-young block of fruit at this iconic Walla Walla vineyard.

2023 Gamache VIneyard Viognier

$30 / $25.50 / $24

The 2023 Viognier, our sixth wine from this lovely block of fruit, presents a pale straw color with glittering platinum highlights. Aromas of Asian pear and white peach intertwine with subtle tendrils of green pea shoots to present a fresh, clean, and intriguing bouquet. On the palate, this Viognier reveals a slightly weightier character than the Grenache Blanc, boasting rich flavors of ripe yellow peaches, apricots, cantaloupe, and Granny Smith apples. Despite its fuller body and viscosity, this wine maintains the signature mouthwatering acidity and energy that we cherish. It strikes a perfect balance between richness and freshness, showcasing the unique essence of Gamache Vineyard and this north-facing block.

2021 BDX

$65 / $55.25 / $52

Rainy and windy weather at bloom and 5 weeks of 100°+ heat in summer were a double-whammy, for (as much as I hate to impugn one of our favorite varieties) Merlot can be a bit of a wimp when it comes to challenging conditions. So at blending time, with a limited quantity of Merlot, we chose to focus that Merlot volume on making a killer BDX. This is probably our most Right Bank-styled BDX yet — taut, sleek, and more elegant than the 2020. Buckets of bright red cherries and other red berries on the nose are complemented by hints of clove and herbal nuances. The polished palate is energetic, full of mouthwatering tart cherry and dried cranberry, with wonderfully delicate barrel notes of toasted brioche and cedar on the finish. This iteration of BDX represents a pinnacle of nuance and refinement, a testament to the artistry of blending. We’re immensely proud of this achievement.

2021 Phinny Hill Vineyard Cabernet Franc

$55 / $46.75 / $44

After an involuntary hiatus thanks to 2020’s smoky conditions, 2021 heralds the return of this wine from one of our cherished blocks of fruit. While maintaining a familiar essence reminiscent of previous vintages, this version unmistakably embodies the warmth of 2021. Aromatically rich and inviting, brimming with dark, rich, slightly stewed fruits — plum, black raspberry, black cherry, complemented by notes of fresh bay leaf and hibiscus flower. On the palate it boasts a generous breadth and suppleness, with chalky tannins and flavors of black plum, blackberry, graphite, and hints of espresso on the persistent finish. Like its predecessors, the 2021 Phinny Franc is delightful for immediate enjoyment, but its true brilliance awaits those patient enough to cellar a bottle or two (or three, or four…) for a few years.

2021 Phinny Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

$55 / $46.75 / $44

We have never been dogmatic about composition, never insisting on 100% varietal or vineyard blends. If small percentage of another element enhances the final product, we’re all for it. BUT, when everything aligns perfectly, and no blending is necessary, it’s a treat. This is the first non-Club exclusive wine we’ve made that’s unblended, 100% source component. We simply blended two neutral French oak barrels with a single new French oak puncheon to produce this stunner. It bursts from the glass with a harmonious mix of cassis, blackberry, and tart cherry, seamlessly integrating barrel notes of baking spice and a touch of herbaceousness — evoking the image of a pie cooling on a summer windowsill. The palate is bold yet refined, building to a luscious midpalate that maintains energy and focus, and echoes the aromatic fruits. The finish is enduring, with a delightful interplay of fresh fruits and barrel notes.

2019 Quintessence Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

$85 / $63.75 / $63.75

From just our third vintage of production, our approach to Red Mountain Cabernet once again pays dividends. We adhere to a meticulous approach: early picking, careful fermentation that avoids excess heat or overworking the cap, and patient aging. This allows us capture that intense character and weight of wines from this legendary AVA without overwhelming the palate with excessive tannins. Even after 2.5 years in barrel and over 2 years in bottle, it feels as though this wine is STILL holding back some of its allure. Aromatically, it shows a classic Quintessence Cabernet profile, with dark cherry, raspberry, cranberry, and hints of mocha. The palate is dense, plush and opulent, with abundant yet refined tannins that build and linger. It encapsulates everything we adore about Cabernet and Red Mountain, and yet this wine is merely at the beginning of its journey, with years of development still ahead.
