This wine possesses a deep cherry color. In the aroma you will find strawberry, cherry, red currant and red licorice flavors. These are balanced by wispy floral aromas of citrus blossoms and roses. The wine's sweet palate ripples with delicate fruit flavors, and finishes with a lingering silky cherry note.
The fruit used to produce Lady In Red was grown at several outstanding locations around the Yakima Valley and Columbia Valley, including our own Kestrel View Estate Vineyard. Grapes from the chosen sites produce wines brimming with ripe red fruit flavors and generous mouthfeel. The fruit which composes Lady In Red was carefully picked at its height of maturity, then de-stemmed and crushed leaving 15% whole berries. It was fermented at 85° F, in small batches, for 7 to 10 days, then gently pressed so as not to extract any harsh tannins. Fifty percent was then aged in small oak barrels until bottling.
Our Lady In Red Holiday Edition is a blend of hand crafted reds that have been thoughtfully combined. The resulting product is a stunning holiday sipper.

Our white table wine has traditionally been a blend of Viognier, and Gewürztraminer, with a splash of Pinot Gris. This year a touch of Muscat also found its way in. The grapes were harvested simultaneously and blended as juice in the fermenter.
The juice underwent a cool slow fermentation using Côte de Blanc yeast. The combination of these factors helped to preserve the fine fruit and floral qualities of the varieties. The fermentation was stopped at 0.8% Residual Sugar. The resulting wine is a marriage of spice and floral elements.
The color is black becoming very deep plum at its margins. The mouth is filled with dark fruit such as: Van cherries, pomegranates, Elk Heart plums, loganberries, cola, coco, dried herbs, cigar, coffee and smoke. This expansive and generous wine boasts full body, ripe dense fruit flavors, with sweet supple tannins and a lively finish.
The fruit was hand-picked and sorted to remove any leaves that may have found their way into the bins. The tiny berries were soaked in their own juices to transfer all the goodness of the grapes to the wine. Once the precious color and flavor had been extracted, the wine was pressed into barrels. There it spent twenty-two months aging in small French, Hungarian and American oak before being bottled.
Love life to the fullest. Dance!
