Appellation/Vineyards: Pepper Bridge; Les Collines, Minnick; Alder Ridge; Stone Tree / Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope and Walla Walla AVAs
Winemaking notes: The whole philosophy behind this blend is to showcase the best of these 3 AVA’s and the very specific vineyard characters in our particular vineyard blocks. Alder Ridge delivers elegance and structure while Minnick Hills offers all the earthy minerally characters that this vineyard is known for. Stone Tree lifts the blend to another level in terms of darker fruit aspects and overall power, richness and spice.
