Tasting Notes

This has a lustrous ruby color with aromas of milk chocolate, blackberry, eucalyptus, toasted almond and clove. The palate is lush with flavors of plum, blackcurrant, chocolate, tobacco leaf, nutmeg and anise. The fruit, earth and tannins find a smooth balance with a long finish.

Vineyard Notes

North by Northwest was founded in 2005 by the King family with the vision to handcraft varietally pure wines from the finest vineyards in Walla Walla Valley and Columbia Valley AVAs, which straddle the border of Washington and Oregon. We partner with like-minded vineyard owners, with an eye on sustainable viticultural practices. Our guiding principle is simple: produce a quality wine, for wine lovers.

Winemaker Notes

Fermentation techniques included cold soaking, punch downs, and pump overs, and extended maceration. Aging took place over 16 months in both American and French oak barrels.
