The oldest vineyard in the Pacific Northwest’s smallest American Viticultural Area shines in the hands of second-generation winemaker Wynne Peterson-Nedry, and this bottling marks her first vintage as head winemaker. The family connection to the property runs deeper as her birth year coincides with the purchase of this parcel — 1980. LIVE certified sustainable fruit spent 11 months in 42% new French barrels, which helps make for aromas of black currant, Marionberry, cola, leather and tar. Inside, it’s filled with plums, red currant and Western serviceberry, backed by pomegranate acidity, plum skin tannins and figs.
