Beautiful deep garnet color. The nose displays driving, dark red Bing cherries. There is a cherry orchard located next to our Holy Roller Vineyard and this past summer the fruit was left unharvested due to rain splitting. Two months later the cherries were sun dried to perfection and I gorged on them. This wine tastes like a liquid expression of that flavor. A unique contributing factor to this wine blend is the addition of 8% of the varietal Aglianico. A first for Walla Walla Valley, we planted this ancient grape of southern Italy in our Serra Pedace Vineyard. We tried a splash of this varietal in the blend and found it fit like a glove, adding structure and a firm core of austere fruit.
