The Malbec grape tends to have a dark, inky color, and is known for producing full-bodied, tannic wines. Grown worldwide, Malbec has taken a particularly strong hold in other warm wine-producing regions. With a deep shade of plum and full flavors of black current and overripe cherry on the palate, our Malbec is a clear favorite for many. The nose contains hints of black pepper, overlaid with fresh cut grass. The low acids, full body, and light finish make this an easy-drinking wine. Source: Tagaris Winery, Richland, WA.
2016 Cabernet Sauvignon:
As one of the most well-recognized red varietals, the Cabernet Sauvignon has a reputation for being strong, dry, and full-bodied. The naturally high tannins and acid in this wine make it an optimal candidate for aging. True to form, our Cab Sauv has dry characteristics with a bold palate of red fruit flavors, blackberry jam, and a hint of spice. The full-bodied nature of this wine creates a rounded mouthfeel, and the lingering finish is sure to warm you up even on the coldest Montana day. Source: Martinez & Martinez, Prosser, WA.
2015 Pinot Noir:
Most commonly associated with the Burgundy region of France, Pinot Noir is a classic and recognizable wine varietal that is now grown all over the globe. With thin skins and a penchant for growing in tight clusters, this grape takes a lot of care to grow and cultivate. Following in the traditional style of Pinot Noir, our wine is dry with a light to medium body. The pale ruby color accurately represents the mingled flavors of raspberry and tart cherry, laced with hints of plum and blackberry. Medium acidity and low tannins make this lightweight wine ideal for the summer months. Source: Tagaris Winery, Richland, WA.
2015 Red Blend:
This Red Blend is unique in that it is made in the classic Rhone Valley style, unlike the more common Bordeaux style you will find on the supermarket shelves. The Rhone Valley of France is a highly respected wine growing region known best for its Syrah grapes (Northern Rhone) and Châteauneuf-du-Pape blends (Southern Rhone). Our blend is representative of the Northern Rhone, and contains 75% Syrah and 25% Viognier, a white wine varietal that contributes to the color and aroma. Flavors of bright red fruit mingle with the tannins on the center of your tongue, before fading away to a light, pleasant finish. With little to no acid on the edges of your tongue, this blend is very approachable. Source: Claar Cellars, Pasco, WA.
2017 sauvignon blanc:
With early origins as an indigenous grape of South West France, Sauvignon Blanc is recognized for the crisp, fresh wine it produces. When grown in cooler climates, the green, grassy flavors are prevalent, while warmer climates produce flavors of tropical fruit. Our Sauvignon Blanc leans toward the latter, with a fuller body that leaves pleasant flavors of peach and grapefruit lingering on your palate. The mild acidity and unique flavor profile of Sauvignon Blanc makes it one of the few wines that can be effectively paired with sushi. Source: Claar Cellers, Pasco, WA.
Hailing from the Rhine region of Germany originally, Riesling has become a household name among wines. The grape itself is versatile, and lends itself well to a large range of wine styles. Our Riesling contains around 1.5% residual sugar to help balance out the naturally high acidity of the wine. The mouthfeel has a viscous, almost “chewy” quality to it, and you will taste prominent flavors of nectarine, apricot, and ripe melon. There is also a slightly effervescent or bubbly quality to our Riesling, making it the perfect base for our wine cocktails. Source: Four Feathers Estates, Prosser, WA.
2016 Dessert Riesling:
While there are man types of Dessert Wines available, ours falls in the “Late Harvest” category. The grapes are left on the vine just past the peak harvesting season, allowing the sugars to continue accumulating. At the time of harvest, the grapes have naturally dehydrated, and have an appearance resembling raisins. The resulting wine has a thicker consistency, and is packed full of flavors of ripe peach, apricot, and honeydew. Source: Claar Cellars, Pasco, WA.
