The Vineyard The vineyard site is a steep north facing slope of the Snipes Mountain ridgetop. Planted in 1998, the soils are shallow loamy Missoula flood deposits above well-drained gravelly subsoil. The north facing aspect protects the vines from the prevailing southwesterly winds and the elevation 300 feet above the surrounding Yakima Valley protects from frost in the spring and fall as well as the threat of winter damage. The vineyard is a field blend of Dijon clones 76 and 96. The Wine On the nose: Juicy pear, lemon creme, toasty, slightly peachy, complex and integrated. On the palate: creamy, peach and pear nectars, soft with balancing acidity, lingering toasty finish. This wine pairs well with baked black cod, butternut squash soup, spinach salad.
