2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve: Our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a true reflection of the talent of our local growers. This wine pairs beautifully with hearty seared meats, roasted vegetables and mushrooms – especially Pacific Northwest Morels and Chanterelles. Approachable yet bold, complex with plenty of grip; hints of red berries, earth, oak, and tannins with a smooth & memorable finish.

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon: A smooth and perfectly balanced blend of Elephant Mountain, Moody, and McKinley Springs vineyards.  Aged in barrel for 22 months, our Cabernet Sauvignon is one of our boldest and most distinctive red wines and a quintessential representation of the Pacific Northwest. We harvest the grapes when they have developed a ripe earthiness with rich, black cherry flavors and deep tannins in the skin; while maintaining acidity. Smooth and complex with bold, luscious notes of black cherries with an undertone of rosemary and eucalyptus. Ripe blueberries round out the finish.

2016 Malbec Reserve: McKinley Springs Vineyards are the original players in the now fabled Horse Heaven Hills AVA.  Bright, bold and full-bodied; deep and dark in color. Rich aromas of earth and lush blackberry lead to a savory palate of Italian red plum, cedar, and a touch of pepper.

Awards:  Gold Medal Winner – 2020 Great NW Invitational Wine Competition.

2017 Dampier Pinot Noir Reserve: Located on the north side of the Columbia River sits Dampier Vineyard in Underwood Mountain, WA. At approximately 1,100 feet, this vineyard benefits from southern facing slopes with great exposure to the sun and cool Gorge winds throughout the growing season. Our Dampier Vineyard Reserve Pinot Noir Red Wine is taken from the Eastern most rows which gain additional flavor from this slightly different soil and exposure.

A delightful herbaceous nose leading to an earthy, red currant palate with a soft, spicy rhubarb finish. This black label reserve offers a delicate finish that will pair perfectly with any cuisine.

2016 The Daughter's Reserve:  A sassy Rhone inspired blend named for the winery owner’s daughter and fitting to her personality! Complex flavors and aromas of ripe raspberry, blueberry, and currant transition into savory herbal notes of anise and green peppercorn, along with hints of caramel and warm baking spices. On the full, bright, and lively palate, savory notes of tobacco, toasted brown sugar and baking spices become more defined on the warm and zippy finish.

It’s a fantastic wine for great times and great company. This second release vintage of The Daughters’ is a blend we’ve looked forward to making and sharing. Pair with smoky BBQ or hearty meats.

Product

2018 Necessity White: Sourced predominately from our house vineyards. The Columbia Gorge is a perfect place for growing and producing exquisite white blends. We strive to showcase the tangy acidity of our region while carrying a soft and pleasing mouthfeel. This wine is an elegant blend of our premier white varietals demonstrating the nuance and diversity of the wine-growing region here in the Columbia Gorge.

2018 Chardonnay Reserve: Our Reserve Chardonnay White Wines is single sourced and aged for 16 months in neutral Oak barrels.  Featuring a delicious vanilla and caramelized soft oak bouquet and palate of rich custard flan, leading to a luscious creamy soft caramel finish.  Lip smacking delicious! Due to our cooler climate, Oregon Chardonnay has a naturally higher acidity level than those from California, making them perfect for long barrel aging. Acidity stands up to time resulting in a more complex and balanced wine.

2019 Pinot Gris: The beautifully situated Van Horn Vineyard Pinot Gris was custom crushed at Mt Hood Vineyard. This Pinot Gris is full bodied with a bright yet silky mouthfeel and a crisp finish.  Crisp notes of peach, pear, and apricot with hints of jasmine on the nose transforms into the palate with Mandarin Oranges, honeysuckle blossom and mildly nutty notes of cashew. This wine is a perfect match for light appetizers, grilled fish, chicken and pasta salads.

Truly luscious and big, loaded with acidity and supple tannins to stand up to whatever it’s paired with. An aroma of ripe dark cherry, caramel, pepper and a palate filled with bright acidity and a hint of vanilla to finish. To have known Rusty is to understand why dogs are (hu)man’s best friend.

Like this wine, he was one of the best.

Aromas of baked blueberry, cherry, and black fruits along with savory hints of freshly cut tobacco, caramel, brown sugar, and baking spices excited the senses. Uplifting tannins on this full bodied, silky red blend fills the palate with flavors of blueberry, tart red and black fruit, tobacco, caramel and spiced brown sugar that leaves a zippy and lingering finish.

2017 Syrah

Product

Our 2017 Syrah Red Wine is sourced from McKinley Springs in Horse Heaven Hills and the Reid Vineyard in Rufus, Oregon and yields a deep-bodied and bountiful wine.  Complex yet silky, our 2017 Syrah has been aged for 24 months for softened tannins and great structure.

Deep aromas of toasted caramel and vanilla, with notes of white pepper, blackberry and forest floor transform on the palate to rich flavors of blackberries, plums and currants with savory smoked white pepper and cinnamon. The palate starts out big and fruit-forward, then transitions into a short, dry almost fleeting finish that calls you back for more.

This bold wine can hold up to the intense flavors of slow-roasted barbecue pork and other grilled and dried meats.  We vinify our wines to embrace the flavors of the Columbia Gorge region and to be enjoyed with family and friends.
