By on March 11, 2015

upland-estates-teunis-2009-labelWinemaker Robert Smasne expertly honors the heritage of the Newhouse family’s great grandfather Teunis Johannes with this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (22%), Cabernet Franc (18%) and Malbec. Aromas include blueberry, Marionberry, vanilla bean, lilac and violets. It’s a drink brimming with that same purple fruit in a medium-structure. That theme of blueberry and Marionberry keeps pushing from beginning to end. This wine earned a gold medal at the 2014 Great Northwest Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 120 cases

Alcohol: 13.9%
