For a Song 2014 Syrah

Columbia Valley, Washington

$14.99 or 13.49 for club members or by the case.



We in Washington feel that our Syrah sings a very beautiful and unique song. This 2014 Syrah offers up violets, baked blackberry pie, cardamom and spice fill the nose. Plum preserve and exotic spices follow through on the pallet with a soft, textured finish.The end result is an elegantly lush wine with an easy drinking balance.
For a Song Wines is a collaborative effort between wine maker Kyle Johnson and wine importer/distributor Mike de Maar. Both had a dream of creating value driven wines, sourced from great vineyards they knew, which would represent huge appeal for the price.
With packaging created to evoke feelings of nostalgia for days gone by, when we all had time to slow down and listen to the music, we hope you’ll be inspired to do the same.

 

Chinook

Yakima Valley, Washington



When Kay Simon and Clay Mackey first put down roots in Prosser in 1983, there were only about 40 wineries in the state, and the Yakima Valley had just been established as the state’s first American Viticultural Area (AVA). The inspirational couple behind Chinook Wines, Simon and Mackey went on to carve a niche for themselves by making approachable, affordable wines even as they helped shape the burgeoning industry around them. This year, as more than 900+ wineries churn out award-winning vintages, Chinook and the Yakima Valley AVA celebrate their 34th anniversary.



2015 Sauvingnon Blanc $19.99
This Sauvignon blanc includes fruit from the fourth vintage of a clonal trial at a vineyard North of Prosser. The range of aroma & flavor components are complex. The 2015 Chinook Sauvignon blanc has a crisp balance of body & acidity. They fermented the juice at a cool temperature to retain floral & fruity aromas such as ripe grapefruit. We find this wine perfectly matched with herbed chevre.

2015 Chardonnay $19.99
Chinook's Chardonnay grapes are grown by multi-generational Yakima Valley vineyard families who sell them their 'old vine' Chardonnay. The winegrape pioneering families denHoed & Roy planted these vines to provide for the emerging wineries in the Yakima Valley. Fruit from these vineyards results in flavors in the wine reminiscent of tropical fruits (pineapple) & Granny Smith apples. These flavors were amplified by aging in lightly toasted oak barrels, which added a subtle vanilla aroma.

2016 Rose of Cabernet France $16.99
This much-loved rosé has aromas reminiscent of strawberry jam. It's a favorite with salty snacks or fresh summer salads. Made from the prized Cabernet Franc grape, the 2016 is bright pink and delicious served chilled. Just 150 cases bottled. 

2014 Cabernet Franc $24.99
For over 15 years Chinook has produced a Cabernet Franc from their estate vineyard and selected growers' fruit in the Yakima Valley. The 2014 Cabernet Franc is 100% varietal and from 100% Yakima Valley AVA grapes. Their hands-on minimal processing produces a Franc which is soft, drinkable and low in tannins. To emphasize the Cabernet Franc characteristics (cherries, raspberries, licorice, violets) they choose to age this wine in neutral oak barrels. In the 2014 season, grapes were grown at Chinook's Estate Vineyard and Boushey Vineyards.

Stop in Friday and sample the rosé and Cabernet Franc.
