"2010 Stands alone due to extraordinary events! If it was not for the cool temperatures and the higher than normal precipitation we would have experienced just a regular WA State year. 2010 was very challenging both in the vineyards and in the cellar. Techniques and procedures during crush, not tried in our winery’s history, were pulled out of the tool box and applied. The results speak for themselves. Merlot and Syrah stand out showing depth and chewy mouthfeel already and with late ripeners Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot showing more classic and complex "Bordeauxesque" undertones of earth and spice. Whites fared very well and especially favored our Roussanne weaving blends with high levels of complexity. All in all, we are happy with the 2010 vintage and look forward to enjoying these wines!" - Winery
