Here's what they are...

2015 :NB Una Notte GSM Blend - Columbia Valley ($30)

How many times must you taste a wonderful wine before wanting to make one just like it? One night…was all it took for us to know we wanted to make a Southern Rhône style blend such as this. Probably our most fruit-forward wine of the vintage with strawberry and raspberry up front in the bouquet, soft, but with enough structure to give this wine length in a proper cellar. Special thanks to Tedd Wildman from Stone Tree Vineyard for the major components of this blend and a significant positive contribution of Mourvèdre from Scott Williams of Heart of the Hill and Ranch Vineyards.

  • Bottled 7/29/17

2015 :NB Cabernet Franc: Dineen Vineyard - Yakima Valley($25)

Cabernet Franc on its own, alone, but not lonely, because this wine has so many friends. We have worked with the fruit from Dineen Vineyard for many years and have come to appreciate the varietal; sometimes savory and herbal finish, but full flavored and complex with concentrated dark berry fruit. Dineen Vineyard is located at the far west end of the Yakima Valley where the climate is relatively cool. We see rich tannins and length of finish in our wines, which leads us back to the vineyard year after year. Enjoy!

Made from 100% Cabernet Franc from a site in the Yakima Valley, the 2015 Cabernet Franc Dineen Vineyard offers a perfumed nose of candied cherries, blueberries, violets, and mint. It's juicy, medium-bodied, and lively on the palate, with a lifted yet fresh and enjoyable style. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck

 

2015 :NB Cabernet Sauvignon: Dineen Vineyard  -  Yakima Valley ($35)

This charming location near Zillah is quickly becoming our showcase vineyard of the Yakima Valley. Grapes for this wine were raised in Catherine’s Block by owner Patrick Dineen and Vineyard Manager Patrick Rawn. The cool location brings out the rich dark berry notes you expect in a Cabernet coupled with well-structured tannins that finish with hints of chocolate and spice. Bottled alone, it offers one a chance to explore the terroir of this site. Special thanks to the Two Pats! 

  • Bottled on 7/29/17
  • 75 cases produced

  • pH 3.76, TA 6.41g/L.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon (DineenVineyard)

From the same vineyard as the Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Dineen Vineyard is similarly colored and offers up a beautiful bouquet of crème de cassis, spicy oak, and crushed flowers. Elegant, medium to full-bodied, and nicely textured on the palate, it's a heck of a lot of Cabernet Sauvignon for not too much buck. Drink it any time over the coming decade or so. Reviewed by Jeb Dunnuck
