From the Northridge vineyard, this soft, peppery, seductive wine is one of the most unique Rhône varieties made in Washington. The intensity of the peppery spice, along with the supple, rose-petal-inflected red fruits, gives the wine unusual depth and length, despite its apparent lightness and softness. It extends gracefully and fully across the palate, leaving a peppery lift to the finish.
