Garnet red in colour with purplish hue. The bouquet shows aromas of peppery spice, earthy, dried herbs, fresh plum, raspberry, smoked meat, black pepper and orange rind, showing complexity and a classic Yakima Valley profile. The flavours explode with intensity, density, richness and layering along with impressive length on the palate. An extended, peppery finish caps it off. This is a big, broad-shouldered wine that still maintains a beautiful sense of balance.

Established in 2010, Kevin and his wife Stefanie set out to produce limited, hand crafted wines that are complex, balanced, and pair well with food. Kevin's love for wines from the Rhone Valley in France have led him to focus primarily on Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedré from cooler climate and higher elevation vineyards in the Yakima Valley. These vineyards produce wines with depth and power along with the finesse and delicateness required to complement food. It all started in 2006, when Kevin had a simple taste of one of Washington’s finest wines and began an unexpected journey from wine customer to producer. Over the course of the next four years, he travelled back and forth to Eastern Washington vineyards, worked under the tutelage of some of Washington’s leading winemakers, and returned to school for chemistry, microbiology, and oenology. Top 100 wines of world by Wine Enthusiast and that he was named 'Winemaker to Watch'.
