Winemaking Notes

After harvesting in October 2012, the grapes for this wine were destemmed at the winery and transferred to tanks.  Fermentation occurred at 85°F in small-lot, stainless steel tanks after a two- to three-day cold soak on the skins. During fermentation, pump-overs were used for intense extraction of color and flavor. Malolactic fermentation was completed to create a round mouthfeel.  All lots were barrel aged in 225-liter barrels for 17 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 30% of which were new.

Tasting Notes

2012 Vision

In 2012, Winemaker Sean Hails had a vision to create a distinct Red Blend, one that stood out against the rest because of its color, flavor and finish. Crafted with grapes from specially selected blocks in the Columbia Valley, our 2012 Vision Red Blend begins with a Merlot base to showcase Washington’s beautiful expression of this grape. From there, Sean layered Syrah and Malbec for its enviable combination of fruit and spice and Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon for enhanced structure and firm tannins. Fruit-driven and full-bodied, this blend offers aromas and flavors of cherry, ripe plum and spice that culminate in a long, pleasing finish.
