2016 Subduction Red

Ripe and hedonistic, this charming ruby colored wine exhibits blackberry, olive and rose petal aromas and flavors. The bright, fresh finish, juicy mid-palate and excellent length provides a wine that is compatible with many foods and occasions.

Tasting notes

Long inspired by the wines of the Southern Rhone Valley, this is our answer to a Washington version of a Cotes-du-Rhone Villages
wine. A blend of classic southern French varieties that are unique and expressive on their own; yet each contributes to create a
harmonious whole. Ripe and hedonistic, this charming ruby colored wine exhibits blackberry, olive and rose petal aromas and
flavors. The bright, fresh finish, juicy mid-palate and excellent length provides a wine that is compatible with many foods and occasions.

Production notes

The fruit was hand harvested and transported to the winery in the early morning and de-
stemmed directly into fermenters with no crushing. Inoculated fermentation was in both open
top fermenters with manual pigeage as well as closed top concrete Nomblot cube tanks with pump overs. It was pressed at dryness and barreled in French oak barrels (10% new) and in Nomblot tanks. Bottled in 11 months.

Subduction Red is more an exploration of the Columbia Valley than a representation of any one varietal or vineyard. The grapes all come from throughout the Horse Heaven Hills, Red Mountain and Yakima Valley, all from vineyards with which we have long term contracts. What is important for us lies in what each site contributes to the overall blend.
