Philippe Melka, named one of the top nine winemakers in the world by Robert Parker, used small lots from Washington State's finest vineyards to craft this enticing red blend.

A warm, dry spring arrived early in 2015 and was followed by a hot summer.  Careful canopy management throughout the growing season helped protect the grapes from too much sun.  Although warm daytime temperatures persisted throughout the fall, evening temperatures were cool, perfect conditions to maintain the grapes’ natural acidity and fully ripen the vintage’s small, thick-skinned berries.  The resulting wines are both powerful and elegant.

As in previous vintages, hand-sorted grapes underwent a variety of fermentation techniques to build layers of complexity and richness in this refined blend.  Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented in 400L French oak barrels that were gently rolled throughout fermentation to add structure and showcase the grapes’ rich, supple tannins.  All other varieties were fermented in traditional stainless-steel tanks, with select lots enjoying longer skin contact to enhance the wine’s dark color and mid-palate.  Aged 22 months in all French oak barrels, 75% new, and bottled unfiltered and unfined.
