The 2005 Harlequin Claret is a wine reminiscent of left bank Medoc Bordeaux. Bright aromas of blackberry, cherry, cassis, pencil lead, damp earth and mocha are framed by toasty oak, toffee and barrel spice.
From the oldest block in Washington's Grand Cru vineyard comes this lovely rich and balanced Chardonnay. Aromas of mandarin orange, apple tart tatin, wet stone and mineral precede flavors of orange, mango, hazelnut and spice.
Subtle blackberry notes suggest a dark side, while a hint of leather promises danger, but take comfort, this one is a gentle mistress.
2012 Pinot Grigio-Crawford
Wilridge winemaker Paul Beveridge crafts Pinot Grigio in the classic Northern Italian style to emphasize the fresh citrus aromas and flavors of the grape.
Grapes from 13 different vineyards, including four different grape varieties commonly blended into wines coming from the Bordeaux region France, comprise this wine. This wine incorporates the broad diversity of flavors available in the Columbia . While approachable early, this wine will age under favorable storage conditions for several more years. Accompanying foods should be boldly spiced, herbed and peppered!
A warm pie fresh from the oven. The acid of berries pairs nicely with a kick in this jammy treat of w wine.
2006 Le Grand Pere
Only two barrels of this beautifully balanced, pretty wine were made from this vintage. Bright cherry, strawberry, and raspberry aromas and flavors give way to pepper and earth tones on the lingering finish. Foods paired with this wine should be moderately herbed and spiced so as not to overwhelm the wine’s delicate nuances. Pouring at a temperature of about 62°F will yield optimum enjoyment. Santé!
