Souzão is a rare varietal known for its deep color and intense flavor, and is often used in the production of port wine. Our Souzão is a small production of only two barrels, and has typically been used in other blends, however the 2016 vintage of Souzão was bottled on its own. The wine was fermented in an open top fermentation bin, with twice daily punch downs for gentle extraction. The Souzão was aged for an extended 37 months, and showcases an “Old World” wine feel. This Souzão has soft tannins and acidity, with a deep rich color and intense fruit aromas. Flavors of black currants, licorice, leather, and spice on the finish are present.

Carmenere is often known as the “lost grape” of Bordeaux. As one of the six original Bordeaux varietals, it has nearly disappeared from its native region, but has since reemerged elsewhere. Eastern Washington’s dry, arid climate provides Carmenere with optimal growing conditions. Our Carmenere was fermented in open top bins, with twice daily punch downs, and aged for 17 months in barrel. This Carmenere presents its characteristic green pepper aroma, along with wonderful flavors of plum, raspberry, and earthy notes.

Portugal or Washington State?  Where are we?
Growing Portuguese varietals in the US is a limited venture. There may be fewer than 200 acres nationwide. We love our rather exclusive vineyard at the Desert Wind Tasting Room. Here we grow about two acres of grapes, varietals which originated in Portugal, and in that country are most often components of fortified port wines. Let us introduce you. 2016 Touriga Nacional in a dry red table style wine and the 2019 in our Rosé style. The 2016 Souzão is the first time we have featured it in a stand alone, we have used it in the past for blending in our Ora blends or our 2018 Rosé.
