2020 2020 Pirouette
- Winemaker Philippe Melka
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Bordeaux Blend
Philippe Melka, named one of the top nine winemakers in the world by Robert Parker, used small lots from Washington State's finest vineyards to craft this enticing red blend.
The 2020 Pirouette is a big, refined wine with beautiful balance, offering concentrated color and flavors. Black cherry, sweet spice, plum, and hints of dark chocolate are lavishly integrated with silky tannins that leave a rich impression across a lengthy finish. Complete and seamless from beginning to end.
Notes of black cherries and mulberries with toasted spices and stones. Medium to full-bodied with creamy tannins and velvety texture. Meaty and structured with a flavorful finish. 66% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 2% cabernet franc and 2% malbec.
A selection of top Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards and a small amount of old vine Cab from Sagemoor Vineyard give Pirouette its ripe and rich style. Merlot, also sourced from Red Mountain, adds suppleness to the mid-palate, with Cabernet Franc from Weinbau Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope lending elegant red fruit and a small amount of Weinbau Malbec, adding depth and spice to the final blend.
