Long Shadows Vintners was founded in 2002 by Washington wine visionary Allen Shoup, who as President and CEO of Chateau Ste. Michelle from 1984-2000 forged internationally acclaimed winemaking partnerships with Piero Antinori (Col Solare) and Dr. Ernst Loosen (Eroica Riesling). Long Shadows Vintners now builds upon those successes by bringing an elite cadre of the world’s most celebrated winemakers from the finest wine regions around the globe to Washington in order to create world class wines that showcase the viticultural excellence of Washington State's Columbia Valley. Each celebrated vintner partners individually with Shoup and resident winemaker Gilles Nicault on a distinct winemaking program to produce a single “best of type” wine under a unique label. These include: Pedestal Merlot by Michel Rolland (international consultant and owner Le Bon Pasteur, Pomerol); Sequel Syrah by John Duval (formerly of Penfold’s Grange, South Australia); Poet’s Leap Riesling by Armin Diel (Schlossgut Diel, Nahe, Germany); Pirouette by Agustin Huneeus (Quintessa, Napa Valley) and Philippe Melka (Vineyard 29, Hundred Acre, Napa Valley); Chester-Kidder by Allen Shoup and Gilles Nicault (former winemaker at Woodward Canyon, Walla Walla Valley); Feather Cabernet Sauvignon by Randy Dunn (Dunn Vineyards, Napa Valley, formerly of Caymus); and Saggi by Ambrogio & Giovanni Folonari (Cabreo, Nozzole, from Chianti Classico and La Fuga, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany). Long Shadows is named in tribute to the stature of this select group of individuals, who continue to shape the wine industry with their benchmark wines and wineries. Read less

Kinda dullsville. I was expecting a rich fruit bomb but to me this was like when you drink kool aid and don't add enough sugar. i'm not saying that this tastes like kool aid. It just tastes like nothing to me.

Red, slightly transparent in color with a blue hue. Toasted notes of milk chocolate and black fruit on the nose give way to subtle tannins and more primary fruit on the palate, along with a touch of spice. The mouthfeel is plush and silky, rounded ou... Devon Magee. A Proprietary Blend wine from Washington in USA. 2006 Long Shadows Chester Kidder 750ml

Potent and polished at one and the same time, this deeply filled opus shows complexing accents of rooty spice and sweet, loamy soil smells to its very deep and confident fruit. Solid, yet supple and showing a nice sense of polish, the wine is appropr... Connoisseurs' Guide. A Proprietary Blend wine from Washington in USA. 2006 Long Shadows Chester Kidder 750ml

Aromas of dried figs and cocoa powder, along with hints of tamarind and toasty oak are followed by intense violet and blueberry jam flavors beautifully integrated around a spicy core. Balanced, with refined texture and robust structure, a seductive mouthfeel sets up the wine for its remarkably long, satisfying finish.
