2004 Kestrel View Estates Vineyard : Yakima Valley
Kestrel View Estates Vineyard is the home vineyard of Kestrel Winery, who fortunately for us don’t vinify all of their own grapes. :Nota Bene has put together a wonderful blend from one of the oldest vineyards in the state, on Hinzerling Road in Prosser. Located in the Yakima AVA, it’s one of the cooler locations in the state. This cool climate gives rise to intense cherries in the nose along with delicate floral character as you enjoy this wine over time.
