Bottle Party - Northern Rhone

For the folks coming over for Cayuse Weekend on April 5th, we are having our annual bring a bottle party on Friday night starting at 6pm at our WW Tasting Room! The theme this year is Northern Rhone. That means Cote Rotie, St. Joseph, Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage, and Cornas. If you want to bring some Condrieu, or Ch. Grillet, feel free to bring that as well :).

What N. Rhone is NOT: Cotes du Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Australia, Central Coast, Sonoma, and definitely not WA State or Oregon.

Again, your ticket to entry is a bottle of N. Rhone!! See you on Friday night! We will have Chef Andrae Bopp and Andrae's Kitchen on site with a food truck so you can grab some killer grub to go with your Syrah and Viognier!!

Wine Club Pickup Party - Walla Walla

We will have a pick-up party at our tasting room in Walla Walla on Saturday night of Cayuse Weekend, April 6th, from 5-7pm. We will have some light snacks available, and of course we will be pouring both new wines for you to try! We will also be pouring our newest 2018 Magician’s Assistant Cab Franc Rosé, and you will be able to purchase and take some of that home that evening. No RSVP necessary. See you there!

2016 Archimage Red Wine – 92-94 Points

The 2016 Archimage checks in as a blend of 50% Cabernet Franc, 47% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, brought up in 44% new French oak. Deep ruby/purple-colored with gorgeous notes of blackberries, leafy herbs, and exotic flowers, as well as just a hint of background oak, this beauty is full-bodied, concentrated, and elegant on the palate, with great tannin. It's another wine that's going to age gracefully.

2016 Illusionist Cabernet Sauvignon – 92-94 Points

Blueberries, cassis, lead pencil and hints of graphite all emerge from the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Illusionist, which is beautifully layered, silky and pure on the palate. With medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin, and a great finish, it's another terrific wine from Trey. Drink it over the coming decade or more. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, all aged 20 months in 64% new French oak.
