2018 BFM – Dionysus Vineyard, Columbia Valley
85% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot
We love Washington State Merlot, and think it’s one of the greatest places in the world to grow and make it. That’s part of why we are so honored to get to work with a little slice of history with the old vine Merlot at Dionysus Vineyard. Our 2018 BFM consists of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, and stands up to its reputation of being the biggest Merlot based blend coming out of Washington today!

2018 Petite Sirah – Stone Tree Vineyard, Wahluke Slope
90% Petite Sirah, 7% Primitivo, 3% Syrah
Our Petite Sirah hails from Stone Tree Vineyard in the heart of the Wahluke Slope AVA and exemplifies the luscious fruit and power that this vineyard is so well known for. Bound by the Columbia River and the Saddle Mountains, the rapid cooling in the evening helps retain naturally high levels of acidity, which in turn preserves the varietal characters of the grape. Get ready – this wine starts big, stays big and finishes big!

Was one of your wines a bit fizzy when you opened it?

The winemaking team wants you to know what that’s about.  The bottles in your STS Tasting Kit are bottled from our regular 750ml bottles.  To maintain the integrity and freshness of the wines, our team places a small amount of CO2 in each bottle right before filling.  Sometimes, some of this CO2 dissolves into the wine and creates tiny gas bubbles.  If you experience this, it’s totally natural and there is absolutely nothing to be concerned about.  Give your glass a really good swirl and you will find the fizz dissipates very quickly. The more you know!
