The Alder Ridge Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills of Columbia Valley Washington, is endowed with a varied palette of soils, elevations, aspects and other influences. This Mourvèdre is situated along the river, pitch perfect for the unique expression of this varietal with its earthy, brooding, dark fruit, tobacco, coffee, leather and spices. Handling in the winery follows our long- standing approach using slow extraction and minimal intervention to bring out the old-world characteristics we love in this varietal. A new 500-liter American Oak barrel was chosen for aging 38% of the wine in the final blend, giving this rich complex wine the support and profile needed for balance and long-term aging.
