Red Mountain Vineyard
Red Mountain Vineyard is located within the Red Mountain AVA, one of Washington State's warmest AVAs. It is known for producing big, structured red wines with copious amounts of tannin, minerality, and fresh red fruits. We source 6 acres of fruit from this vineyard, established in the mid 1990's. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot are all sourced to go into our flagship Cabernet, The Illusionist, as well as our flagship blend, The Archimage. As mentioned before, this site is one of the warmest that we work with. The soils are a complex mix of Missoula flood deposits, wind blown loess, and caliche.
Seven Hills Vineyard
Seven Hills Vineyard is located on the southern edge of the Walla Walla Valley AVA. It is one of the oldest vineyards in the valley, and is responsible for growing some of the best grapes as well. We source Merlot that goes into The Archimage from Seven Hills. The vineyard is managed by Sadie Drury, a rock star viticulturist. The soils are deep, wind blown loess, have great drainage, and allow for Sadie and her team to dial in the water and nutrient programs for our block.
