The Vineyard!

Sleight of Hand
“One of my favorite estates in Walla Walla is unquestionably Trey Busch's and Jerry Solomon's Sleight of Hand.
They're aided by Keith Johnson, who joined the team in 2011.
These are gorgeous Washington State wines that have tons of fruit and texture, as well as balance, purity, and freshness.
In addition, they're good values. I love the wines.”  

Serious wines without the serious attitudes...
Sleight of Hand Cellars was founded in 2007 by Trey Busch and Jerry and Sandy Solomon. Our only goal from the outset has been to make world class wines while having the most fun that is legally possible. Our love of great wines from around the world, and our love of music, have inspired our vision and growth and have helped us reach a customer base that has the same passions as we do. The winery has been open for less than ten years, but in that time Sleight of Hand Cellars has been named one of "The Next Generation" of up and coming wineries in Washington State, as well as one of "The Next Cult Wineries" by Seattle Magazine. In addition, we have been featured in Wine Spectator magazine and had numerous wines in various of the industry’s “Top 100” lists. Most recently, the Wine Advocate had this to say about our wines: “While I've always loved the wines from these guys, they've hit a new level recently, and the wines are now up there with the crème’ de la crème’ of the state (and beyond).”

The Wines!!

Renegade Chardonnay $14.99
This is a smooth fruit forward Chardonnay that was aged in Stainless Steel for 7 months, and a light toasted French Oak barrel for only 4 weeks to give it a nice creaminess on the finish. Its not overly oaky, or buttery, a perfect balance. The grapes are from the Livermore Valley Appelation.

The Magician Riesling $21.99
The 2015 Magician is 100% Riesling from Evergreen Vineyard, located high on the cliffs high above the Columbia River in the middle of Washington State. 2015 was a warm vintage, but Evergreen's cool site allows for extra hang time for the grapes, the result of which was more flavor, while maintaining the beautiful acidity that is the framework of this wine. Bright, crisp and juicy are the hallmarks of this Riesling, full of green apple and pear notes, juicy minerality and refreshing citrus notes. The very subtle sweetness is perfectly balanced by the acids, and if ever there were a perfect wine for spicy foods, this is the one!

Renegade Red Bland $14.99
A 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Fruit forward on the nose, with  smooth earthy finish.
Fruit was from Solano county. An inexpensive wine that is easy to drink.

The Conjurer Bordeaux Blend $29.99

90-92 Points- Jeb Dunnuck of the Wine Advocate.
"A blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot and a splash of Petit Verdot, the 2015 The Conjurer should end up being a smokin’ value. It offers complex notes of tobacco leaf, black currants, spice and earth in a medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, balanced style. It's going to drink nicely right out of the gate."

The Illusionist Cabernet Sauvignon $54.99

93 Pts The Wine Enthusiast and The Wine Advocate
"The first vintage to include Merlot, the 2014 The Illusionist checks in as a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. The idea with the Merlot was to soften the profile slightly, and the Merlot was the best two barrels in the winery. It is a seamless, full-bodied, incredible looking barrel sample that has pure, layered notes of cassis, graphite, blue fruits and toasted spice notes that continue to change with time in the glass.
Give it a few years of bottle age and enjoy it through 2034."
