"A smoky note adds depth to the rich black currant, blackberry, grilled red pepper and tomato vine flavors that linger on the middleweight finish. The tannins are present but refined. Best from 2014 through 2018. 497 cases made. -HS"(11/12)

Product Description:

"The fertile soil and terrain of the Phinny Hill Vineyards are unique products of two types of the largest floods that have ever occurred, eruption of the greatest flood basalt lava flows known on earth and a series of catastrophic ice age glacial floods with flows so large that they permanently altered the landscape of Eastern Washington. At Phinny Hill, this combination of geography and geology combines to produce conditions for growing exceptional wine grapes from which many award-winning wines are produced. Grapes were hand-picked, and sorted before being destemmed, so only the finest fruit found its way into the wine. We pumped over twice daily for gentle extraction during fermentation. Post fermentation, the wine was aged in 100% new French oak for 20 months. 100% New French Oak." -Winery
