2018 :Nota Bene Arianses Vineyard : Wahluke Slope
We proudly present another enchanting vintage from Arianses Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope. Special thanks to vineyard owner Bruce Zunser for his care and vision in growing the components of this Bordeaux-style blend. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot share the leading role, but all varietals offer significant sensory components. This wine’s complexity and fruit-forward nature are achieved with multi-yeast fermentations, bâtonage, and early integration through blending. We think you’ll enjoy the fruits of our labor.
