Cult of Ceres Messor MMXIII
Winemaker’s Notes – Like it’s 2012 predecessor, the 2013 Messor is a Cabernet-based blend from the historic Dionysus Vineyard. As one of the most celebrated vineyards in Washington State viticulture history, the Dusted Valley family is honored to feature this extraordinary place through the second release of Messor, Ceres’ helper god who reaps the harvest. This wine is an extremely limited production and has been carefully tucked away to provide additional time to bottle age. It is an elegant wine showcasing a beautiful spectrum of fruit and a seamless entry that builds through the mid-palate to the lingering velvety finish.
