Downburst is our single barrel Cabernet Franc from Dineen Vineyard in the Yakima Valley.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of strawberry and raspberry fruit roll-up, leather, graphite and roasted bell pepper. Its flavors of cherry, blackberry and vanilla converge with sage and smoke into a smooth mouthfeel and juicy finish.
Vineyard Notes
Dineen Vineyard
Production Notes
Our grapes were hand sorted and mechanically destemmed into a small bin for a 1-2 day cold soak to bring out flavors and color. Yeast and nutrients were added to start a 6 day fermentation. When fermentation was complete, the “free run” wine was pumped into barrels and the remaining skins were gently pressed to extract remaining wine into the barrels. The wine then went through a malolactic fermentation which softens the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with burgers, turkey, beef stew, tomato dishes, and drenching rain
