Walla Walla natives Jay DeWitt and Doug Harvey run this small winery that is named after an apple packing shed whose history dates to the late 1800s. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (64%), Syrah (18%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Merlot using grapes from three vineyards: Minnick Hills, Birch Creek and famed Seven Hills. It opens with aromas of milk chocolate, cherry, cedar and slate, followed by flavors of brooding notes of espresso, dark chocolate, boysenberry and cardamom, as well as hints of pomegranate and oak. It’s all backed with moderate tannins.
