About the Vineyard

Located in the northwest corner of the Yakima Valley, Red Willow is one of the oldest and most celebrated vineyards in Washington.† The vines are planted on steep hillsides with unique soil formations unlike any other in the state.

 

The regionís warm and sunny days allow the grapes to ripen fully and cool nights keep the fruit acids high, creating flavorful and well-balanced wines.

 

Tasting Notes

Earthy aromas of clove and spice, vanilla bean and dark fruit give way to flavors of mineral and spice notes.† Full bodied and dense in texture with firm tannins and balanced acidity.†

 

Food & Wine Pairing

The 2007 Brick would pair perfectly with a dish like grilled Italian sausage sandwich with seasoned roasted onions and peppers.
