Red Mountain Majesties

Red Mountain is Washington's smallest AVA (by area) and one of the newest being established as a unique subregion of Yakima Valley in 2001.  Some of Washington's most acclaimed wines are sourcing grapes from vineyards here most notably Quilceda Creek.  Many wines made from Red Mountain are single vineyard giving the curious oenophile great opportunity to experience true WA terrior.  The wines coming out of this tiny area display high concentration of fruit with powerful tannins.  Many wines from Red Mountain are easy matches for similarly and even higher priced Napa Valley wines.

5. Nota Bene Cellars Red Bordeaux Blend Red Mountain Ciel du Cheval Vineyard (2007)

« Prev 5 of 5
Previously available for $35.00
Nota Bene proves that you don't have to spend $50 for a wine from one of Washington's greatest vineyards. Big, and bold the wine has deep fruit and mando tannic structure, much more than I had expected for a $25 bottle. It shows all the refinement this vineyard is known for. A true value.
