Mike Januik, formerly winemaker with Chateau Ste. Michelle, is an old hand in Washington, now entering his third decade nurturing and nursing this state's fruit. His wines are understated, elegant and graceful, proportioned to age but created for near term enjoyment as well. Excellent, fruit-driven, balanced and restrained.
