Owner/winemaker Bill Grassie produces his wines in Woodinville and also has planted a vineyard at his property in Fall City, a tiny community in rural eastern King County. The grapes for this wine come from east of the Cascades, and it is a beautiful effort. Aromas of blackberry cobbler, lightly toasted oak and a hint of black licorice gives way to flavors of racy dark fruit, dark chocolate and espresso, all backed by just-right tannins that lead to a memorable finish. This earned a double gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
