This showpiece winery and vineyard overlooking the north shore of Lake Chelan near Manson has crafted a delicious blend of estate Cabernet Sauvignon (44%), Merlot (31%) and pulled-off Syrah (25%) from its reserve program. That Syrah is the secret sauce as its profile of dusty Marionberry and plum fleshes out the midpalate for a broad, deep and long profile that picks up cassis and earthiness. Award: North Central Washington (double gold).
