Vineyard Notes
The Northridge vineyard, nestled in the Wahluke Slope, boasts shallow, ancient soils layered with 8-18 inches of topsoil above a caliche barrier. This unique composition allows water to trickle through while restricting root growth beyond this layer. Untouched by the Missoula floods, these soils have slowly leached calcium over centuries, gradually forming the distinctive caliche that characterizes this exceptional terroir.
Winemaker Notes

Food Pairing Notes
mushroom risotto or any red meats
Production
Aged 26 months in 50% new French and new American oak barrels

The tannins on this wine are incredibly silky. I love the earthiness that is very well balanced with the contrast of the dark fruit notes
