    Three Red Blend- 90 points2011 VintageWine SpectatorHarvey SteinmanSeptember 30, 2013

    "Fresh and vibrant, with tension among the black cherry, mint and spice flavors, mingling effortlessly on the long and deftly balanced finish. Merlot, Malbec and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2016. 297 cases made." –Harvey Steinman


    tasting notes

    Using the well-received previous three vintages as our template, the winemakers and I once again set out to craft a Three blend with the same grapes, and the same overall style. This new vintage ups the percentage of Merlot and Malbec just slightly and cuts the percentage of Mourvedre —that's the way the trial tastings led us. I wholeheartedly believe that those grapes, along with Malbec, represent three of the finest varieties grown in Washington state, and when blended together, they seem to bring out the best in each other. The 2014 Three is ripe and fruit-forward, but has the grip and structure to cellar over the next decade.
