El Prat showcases the unique complement of two of the Columbia Valley’s best vineyards – Wautoma Springs and the Wahluke Slope’s Stone Tree. Our Wautoma Springs Cabernet Sauvignon contributes elegant, refined tannins and a beautiful, flowery nose, due to the combination of sandy/caliche soils and the use of Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 8. The Stone Tree Malbec brings a graceful power, sweet tannins and bright, ripe fruit to the mix, lifting the overall blend.

Winemaker's Notes

El Prat accurately reflects both the terroir and the talent and personality that went into its creation. Aromas of blueberry compote, sweet caramel, vanilla bean, and anise are laced with warm oak undertones. In the mouth, the ripe fruit is balanced with hints of rosemary and savory notes. Aging for 36 months in oak barrels adds complexity and mouth feel.
