Masterpiece White #2 MV 

This crisp and herbaceous white, drinks like a sauvignon blanc in style with a bit of stoniness and lees in the nose. On the palate, it has some light tropical notes of pineapple and melon as well as some floral (white flower) notes to soften the edges. It has a nice tart (lemony-apple) clean finish with bright acid. A terrific food wine. It’s drinking really well right now.

This is the 2nd Masterpiece White blend and is a Multi-Vintage and all Columbia Valley AVA fruit

  • 47% Viognier – 2007 Willard Family Vineyard
  • 33% Sauvignon Blanc – 2008 – a blend of Willard Family Vineyard and Preston Vineyards
  • 20% Riesling – 2007 – – a blend of Willard Family Vineyard and Preston Vineyards

Masterpiece Red #3  MV

This fruit forward red, is drinking well with big,  juicy integrated red and black fruits (cherry, raspberry, blackberry and plum) and is a bit complex layered with exotic spices of cinnamon, clove, and pepper, combined with the  “heady” aromas of violet and bergamot. But don’t let this aromatic wine fool you – it is tart and finishes with big red fruits (cherry) and a solid acid structure making this a perfect wine to compliment food or to be enjoyed all on its own. Delicious now, will improve with some age.

This is the 3rd Masterpiece Red blend and is a Multi-Vintage and all Columbia Valley AVA fruit
