Although designated as Columbia Valley on the label, this 2015 Chardonnay is in fact 100% Estate Red Mountain fruit from the Kiona Estate vineyard. These old vines represent approximately 1/3 of Red Mountain’s pioneering 1975 planting. Now 40 years old, this three-acre block produces elegant wines worthy of attention.
Kiona’s philosophy with this wine is to split the difference between oaky/buttery Chardonnay and high-tone un-oaked Chardonnay. 24% of the 2015 vintage was aged in new French oak for 14 months, and the remaining 76% spent its time in stainless steel. The resulting blend showcases crisp acidity and fresh fruit found in un-oaked Chardonnay along with the rich, creamy roundness and complexity of an oaked Chardonnay.
This classic blend showcases smooth, refined tannins and a long finish. Supple dark berry and earth on the palate round out the experience. Selective blending from some of Washington’s finest vineyards along with careful oak aging yields a balanced, intricate wine.
37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 13% Lemberger, 10% Sangiovese, 6% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Carmen ère, 2% Malbec, 1% Petite Syrah.
Blending old and new plantings, the 2013 Estate Red Mountain Reserve strikes a remarkable balance between power and finesse. This wine is the answer to the question, “What’s so special about Red Mountain?”

Shows all the hallmarks of a great Ciel vintage — elegant and powerful with layers upon layers of interest. Straight out of the bottle the wine has superb energy and ripping great length. After an hour in the decanter, the subdued fruit blooms, boding well for a long, graceful evolution in bottle.

Dark, deep black licorice aromas. Black cherries and blackberries on the palate. Muscular tannins and acidity are deftly balanced. After an hour in the decanter, the tannins are silky and the flavors broaden and deepen magnificently. This wine will unfold gracefully for years to come.

Bel Canto 2015
Saturated medium ruby-red. Lovely complex perfume of raspberry, cherry, graphite, flowers, licorice, tobacco leaf and herbs. Penetrating and juicy but dense as well, with sharply delineated, weightless flavors of red and blue fruits and tobacco leaf accented by violet and minerals. The terrific rising finish features serious firm-edged tannins and a notable light touch. Considerable aging potential. 56% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Franc.

This barrel fermented Viognier has an aroma reminiscent of wild Washington honeysuckle combined with citrus, guava, and lychee nut. It rests heavy and rich on the palate and an interesting orange zest tanginess surprises the tongue. Flavors consist of pineapple, blood orange, and spice box with a lingering finish. 100% Viognier from Dwelley Farm Vineyards in Walla Walla.
A Super-Tuscan blend Walla Walla style. This wine shows surprising complexity and balance. Aromas of chocolate covered dark cherries, toast, and bell peppers first emerge, all melding together. Flavors of bright cherry, bell pepper, and black pepper fill the palate, all with an appealing freshness making Homme Nu a delicious easy-to-drink wine. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Sangiovese.
An experience in taste. Dark blueberry, Bing cherry, elderberry and black licorice aromas turn into lush and penetrating flavors of chocolate-covered blueberry and vanilla extract. The wine shows exuberant youthfulness, but there’s plenty of acidity and tannin structure to allow this to improve. 100% Merlot.
Double gold medal, 2015 Seattle Wine Awards
Black raspberry, cassis, dark plum, graphite and a hint of chocolate can all be found in the aroma of this wine. On the palate it is a mouthful, yet not heavy, for such a big wine. The black fruits shine through with moderately high tannins, and a surprisingly long finish. 33% Cab. Sauv., 33% Merlot, 33% Cab Franc, 1% Petite Verdot.

This Bordeaux style blend has a smoky nose with hints of tar and tobacco. Flavors of tart black plum, cassis, and vanilla are accompanied by an earthy undertone.

Condor is a blend of 40% Merlot and 60% Cabernet Sauvignon from Dwelley Farm Vineyards in Walla Walla.
