We get our grapes ripe, rich and fruity every year but there is always this old world influence of terroir, earth, minerality and great natural acidity in our wines. The INTUITION is the perfect example! Big, rich and ripe but with very complex undertones of the above mentioned and a core of great balanced acidity and tannin. We use old world techniques and minimum influence production methods to showcase the vineyards in all their glory. The lots are saigne’d before fermentation, cold soaked and then left on the skins for as long a possible to increase over all power and terroir feel. A sense of place is important here!!! This is our first growth offering right here from Washington State!!!
