2016Red Wine

Sold Out

The 2016 Blackboard Red Wine was crafted from several vineyards across three AVAs in Washington State: Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, and Walla Walla. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were hand-harvested in the early fall mornings. Upon arriving at the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted and fermented in a combination of concrete and stainless steel tanks. It was then moved to custom French oak barrels (9% new and 91% once-used) for 17 months of cellaring with over 40 individual evaluations by our winemaking team. Only 2,390 cases were bottled

Tasting Notes

"Beautiful notes of strawberry, pureed raspberry, currants, plum jam and spice. Hints of vanilla bean, macerated berries and cocoa powder carry the palate. A fruit forward wine meant for early drinking pleasure with soft tannins and surprising complexity."
