Rich & Smooth

A small family winery (Mike, Gale, Amanda, Angela and Matt) that produces Rhône-style red and white wines from two vineyard properties in the Walla Walla Valley. They produce wines only from varietals that they love and farm themselves. From their first vintage in 2007, the wines have been remarkable with a consistent complexity, depth of flavour, finish and distinctive terroir. Almost everything they do is by hand, planting each vine in the vineyards, trellising, pruning, dropping fruit and then picking and sorting the berries at harvest. 

The density and power of this wine is stunning. There is weight without feeling heavy, incredible complexity of blackberry cobbler, star anise, ripe plumb, saddle leather, Asian spice, oyster shell and wet gravel. For Contender fans, this is up there with the 2009 vintage where the 5% of Marsanne shows through giving it a viscous texture.

Pair this wine with succulent BBQ ribs, braised meats, venison or rich stews.

This product is part of the LCBO Classics Catalogue. It will take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered from its release date.

Impressive for the deep yet polished structure and distinctive crushed rock accents that highlight the richly layered black raspberry, licorice and smoky cracked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2031.
