Two Mountain Winery-Hidden Horse Red-Rattlesnake Hills-NV-bottleBest Buy! In 2000, the Rawn brothers purchased a Yakima Valley orchard planted by their grandfather and began transforming it into their 26-acre Copeland Vineyard. From there, they can see Mount Adams and Mount Rainier — hence, Two Mountain Winery. Here’s their introductory, non-vintage blend of Bordeaux varieties, leading with Cabernet Sauvignon. It quick to appreciate their restrained use of oak, which allows for notes of black currant, plum and blackberry with a hint of minerality and cedar. Blueberry acidity and easy tannin make this really drinkable as it leans toward the lighter side of a medium-bodied red. Try this with their recipe for Ham and Gruyere Bites.
