FULL DESCRIPTION

The Wahluke Slope itself is sort of an Eden in the middle of the high desert of Washington State.  A south-facing alluvial slope running for miles, it is formed of perfectly draining soils just rich enough to support most any crop you can imagine.  Grapes thrive here.  We have had the most luck at this site with Cabernet Franc and Syrah in particular.  And the Cabernet Franc from Block 13 is the very best we harvest.  While we generally yield 7 to 9 barrels of wine from the site annually, just a fraction of that makes it to bottle.  Past vintages have typically been just a barrel or two (25 cases per barrel of wine) as we tend to scrutinize this wine more than any other for the simple fact that when Cabernet Franc is pristine, it rivals any other variety in the world.  Our goal is to make only the best Cabernet Franc, and this site doesn't disappoint.
