This single-vineyard selection shows bright fruit, with raspberry, cherry and vanilla in equal measure, and it opens up broadly on the palate, with lush, ripe flavors. It's significantly different in style from the Yakima Valley bottling (which also includes some DuBrul fruit), and it shows a careful hand at the tiller. This is a winery to watch.
