2018 :Nota Bene Una Notte - Columbia Valley
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 StoneTree Vineyard for this blend’s major components and a significant positive contribution of Mourvèdre from Scott Williams of Heart of the Hill Vineyard.
