The 2018 Magician is 100% Riesling from the Ancient Lakes AVA in the middle of Washington State. Cool temperatures from the vineyards along the Columbia River allow for extra hang time for the grapes, the result of which is more flavor, while maintaining the beautiful acidity that is the framework of this wine. Bright, crisp, and juicy are the hallmarks of this Riesling, full of green apple and pear notes, juicy minerality, classic Riesling notes of petroleum, and refreshing citrus elements. The subtle sweetness is perfectly balanced by the acids, and if ever there were a perfect wine for spicy foods, this is the one!
2018 "MAGICIAN'S ASSISTANT" CABERNET FRANC ROSE'
The 2018 Magician’s Assistant Rose’ is a bone-dry 100% Cabernet Franc Rose’ that screams out summertime; but don’t be fooled. This full bodied rose’ is a year-round, food-friendly rose’ that provides the perfect in-between wine for dishes that feel too hearty for a white, but too delicate for a big red. It is full of fresh strawberry and cherry aromas and flavors, with a hint of watermelon, wet stone, and citrus on the finish.
2016 "THE ENCHANTRESS" CHARDONNAY
90 Points-Steven Tanzer
The Enchantress Chardonnay “(bottled in July 2017; aged in neutral oak and concrete, from an old Wente clone vineyard planted in 1980; from vines picked in two passes, the first one Aug 19th; partial malolactic fermentation): White peach and flowers on the nose, complemented by a musky leesy quality. Fresh, fruit-driven Chardonnay with noteworthy finesse to its peach and lemon flavors. Nicely balanced and long.”
2016 "THE SPELLBINDER" RED BLEND
92 Points—Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2016 Spellbinder is a value-priced blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot. Deep ruby/purple-colored with lots of black and blue fruits, earth, and gravelly minerality, it has terrific depth of fruit, no hard edges, and solid freshness and purity."
2016 "THE CONJURER" RED BLEND
92 Points—Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2016 Conjurer Red Blend is a blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot. It has beautiful polish and elegance as well as lovely black and blue fruits, medium to full body, integrated acidity, and a clean, pure, seamless style. It’s a smoking value that will keep for 7-8 years."
2015 "THE ARCHIMAGE" RED BLEND
94 Points—Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2015 Archimage checks in as a blend of 57% Cabernet Franc and 43% Merlot that spent 20 months in 40% new French oak. This deep ruby/purple-colored effort offers a rocking bouquet of blackcurrants, smoke tobacco leaf, cured meats, and assorted leafy herbs. It’s rich, full-bodied, beautifully layered and textured, and expands on the palate, with sweet tannin. It’s a terrific Bordeaux blend from this team.”
2015 "THE ILLUSIONIST" CABERNET SAUVIGNON
94 points—Jeb Dunnuck
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Illusionist (there’s 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot) spent 20 months in 65% new French oak. It offers a more classic Cabernet Sauvignon bouquet of creme de cassis, tobacco, damp earth and chocolate. As with the Archimage, it’s full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, with sweet tannin, and is going to drink nicely for a decade or more.”
2016 “LEVITATION” SYRAH
93 Points- Wine Spectator
“Harmonious and expressive, this never overplays its hand, offering black raspberry, dark licorice and smoked pepper flavors that take on structure toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025.”
2016 “THE SORCERESS” GRENACHE
90-92 Points- Jeb Dunnuck
“An outstanding Grenache in the making, the 2016 Grenache Sorceress from Trey offers a pale ruby color as well beautiful kirsch and cherry fruits, medium-bodied richness, lots of spice and floral nuances, and a great finish.”
2016 “THE PSYCHEDELIC” SYRAH
94 points -- Wine Advocate:
“The 2016 Syrah The Psychedelic bursts from the glass with lovely aromas of roasted red-black fruit, black olives, espresso, cola and rosemary. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and satiny, with a lavish attack, an expressive core of succulent fruit and a long, sapid finish. Complex and aggressive, it’s already drinking well.”
