The Wines!

Chehalem Inox Chardonnay 2020 $22.99

#58 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2021

91 Points Wine Spectator!  
"This white bursts with aromas of peach blossom and lemon zest, taking on a lush, succulent texture toward a crisp finish. Drink now." 
Winemaker's notes - INOXTM, Chehalem's 100% stainless steel fermented and aged Chardonnay, is a perfect example of the range of this varietal.
The 2020 offering is rich and bright, with initial stone fruit aromatics jumping out of the glass.
They give way to notes of lemon curd, dried mango, and honey. The mouthwatering palate is weighted by a slight viscosity that creates an alluring texture on the finish that begs for another sip.

Substance Cabernet Sauvignon ,"Jacks Vinyard" 2017 $49.99
91 Points Wine Advocate!  
"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Jack’s Vineyard opens to an expressive, dark-fruited nose of blackberries, currant, cassis and subtle dusty florals. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is clean and correct with a balanced mid-palate and a bright and juicy finish." 
Winemaker's notes - 2017 was a fantastic year for making wine with a cool spring and a fair amount of rain. Washington had an ideal spring for heathy vines.
The moderate temperatures during summer were perfect for small clusters and yet delayed veraison into the fall where we had a consistent ripening season that allowed us to hang the fruit for perfect tannin and flavor without losing acidity or acquiring too much alcohol.
Overall it was a vintage to remember.
