AWARD WINNER
Best Crush Collection Wines 2020

Crush Collection

Wine Club Price: $105$136.00 $120.00

Celebrating the 2020 harvest, our Crush Collection features these four delicious wines all perfect for the switch of seasons.

2017 Chardonnay:  Sourced from the fabled McDuffee Vineyard in The Dalles. Due to our cooler climate, Oregon Chardonnay has a higher acidity level than California, making them more like true Burgundian’s. We avoid using new oak for aging our Chardonnay, reaching instead for sur lees aging (stirring of the lees) and partial Malolactic Fermentation to achieve a complete and complex flavor profile.

Aged in mellowed water-bent American Oak barrels, our Chardonnay is bright and lively, with notes of pear baked tart and caramel highlights.  Awards: James Suckling 91 points – 2016 (previous vintage)

2017 Cabernet/Merlot:  This fabulous Bordeaux blend shows why Cab & Merlot goes so well together.  Our blend is a traditional Bordeaux style blend, a perfectly balanced pairing of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon.  A crowd favorite with its fabulous balanced acidity and tannins that show notes of cranberry, plum, purple bell pepper, and fresh pressed coffee. The nose has a delightful vanilla and almond extract with spices and smooth dry finish, perfect for food pairing or by itself.

2017 Necessity Red:  This wine is a lively blend of our premier Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Barbera grapes, celebrating the uniqueness and diversity of our Columbia Gorge wine-growing region. The blend creates a Pinot Noir affect with real substance and weight. All 3 varietals are grown within 25 miles of the winery; there are few places in the world where that is possible.

Fruit-forward with a smooth mouthfeel, this vintage boasts an aroma of violets, rose hips, pomegranate and red currant and a palate offering beautiful acidity, smooth with a soft finish. Great everyday and dinner party wine!  Awards: Silver Medal Winner – 2019 USA Wine Ratings

2017 Barbera Reserve:  This new release is single-vineyard Barbera 100% from the Bolton Vineyard near Wishram, WA. A perfect representation of a great Northwest Barbera.  Our Barbera is one of our most sought after wines. With sophisticated layers, bold characteristics, and brilliant tannins, it is always a wine-lovers’ delight.

This beautifully intricate red boasts a nose of ripe aromas of black raspberry, plum, and fig jam merge with notes of cocoa, leather, and hints of sweet tobacco. The palate gives way to luscious plum, blackberry, and fig, with sweet smokey notes that ride along velvety tannins with a full mouthfeel. Medium+ acidity and alcohol creates balance and a savory finish.  A perfect to compliment any Italian dish of your choice!
