    Winemaker Notes
    The warmest vintage since 2003 cooled off just in time for harvest. The resulting wines were less likely to tip over into overripe favors or high alcohol levels, and picking proceeded at a normal pace. Total tonnage was up about 5 percent over 2012, a record for the state. 2013 made us thank Sweet Baby Jesus that our white wine vineyards are cool sites at higher elevation. The very warm vintage cooled down in mid-September allowing us to pick at the perfect moment in the first week of October. This gave us generous full favored wine while still keeping focus. 

    Tasting Notes
    Exotic aromas. Chamomile. Cardamon. Lime leaf. Exotic in nature, but classic to the bone. Satisfying with minerality racing to a long finish.

    94: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    Another incredible white is the 2013 Chardonnay Moxee Vineyard, which comes from a cool site on the northeastern edge of the Yakima valley, situated at an elevation of 1,450 feet, from 41-year-old vines planted in pure limestone soils. Aged 15 months in 25% new French oak puncheons, it has Chablis-like notes of lemon curd, apple tart, brioche and crushed rock to go with a medium to full-bodied, supple, textured, even sexy style on the palate. Showing a terrific mix of both cool and warm climate characteristics, drink this beauty over the coming 2-4 years.

    93: Wine Spectator
    Taut and tangy, balancing vibrancy against rich pear, pineapple and clotted cream flavors. Finishes long, with mineral and spice notes. Drink now through 2021.

    93: Wine Enthusiast
    The aromas draw you in with complex notes of chamomile, almond butter, herb and citrus. The palate shows depth and vibrant texture, exhibiting poise and exquisite balance. It delivers.
