The 2017 Blackboard Red Wine was crafted from several vineyards across three AVAs in Washington State: Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, and Walla Walla Valley. 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. 3,625 cases were bottled.
