WINE

2019 Chardonnay

86% Evergreen Vineyard Chardonnay, 14% Lawrence Vineyard Roussanne

Fermented with indigenous yeasts in neutral barrels then aged sur lie for 15 months.

High elevation sites littered with caliche and broken basalt contribute freshness and minerality to the wine. Crisp Evergreen Chardonnay does the heavy lifting, providing structure and citrus notes, Roussanne accents with exotic fruit and complexity.

2020 Rosé

40% Grenache, 35% Mourvedre, 25% Cinsault

“A clean mouthful of fruit with a crisp bright finish,” the words of Kris Chau, a magical artist, tattoo poker and conjurer of this label sum it up pretty well. This dry, crisp, direct-to-press intentional rosé from Ravenscliff and Northridge Vineyards in Wahluke Slope was the first in the Kind Stranger series. The wine is pale Provençal style dry rosé with its perfect crispness and 12.2% alcohol.

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

85% Aquilini Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Weinbau Vineyard Malbec

Washington Cabernet vines grown in basalt derived gravel on the shoulders of Red Mountain give excellent depth, intense fruit and ample structure from this awesome site. Weinbau’s 30-year-old Malbec vines pile on the concentration and spice notes. This stunner was fermented whole berry with indigenous yeasts, then macerated an average of 28 days between the lots. Basket pressed to barrel for 20 months, 15% new french oak mostly 500L. Label artwork by Kris Chau, based on a work titled "Healing Hands."
