2022 :Nota Bene Purring Cat White Blend – Yakima Valley
Fine wine grapes raised in two artisan vineyards at the west end of the Yakima Valley show how cool microclimates can produce lovely flavors of melon and apple wrapped in a full-bodied, silky finish like many crafted red wines. Five days of skin contact, followed by natural fermentation and barrel aging sûr lies, contribute to complexity and its ability to age in a proper cellar. | Bottled 7/14/2023 | 63 cases produced | Alcohol 14.20% | pH 3.72 | TA 5.78 g/L
