Each bottle of wine starts in the vineyard where early spring the grapevines
of Yakima Valley are pruned to align perfectly with the summer sun.
Through the summer, the vines struggle to find water and reach out into the soil
to produce a grape full of flavor and richness. The grapes are gathered
early morning in the fall where the temperatures are cool to preserve the
delicate freshness of the fruit. The fruit is then slowly fermented to
preserve all of the aromatic qualities of the grape and then placed into either
American Oak or Stainless Steel depending on the type of wine. Over the
year and a half of aging, the wine is continuously monitored to ensure the
highest of quality prior to bottling.
The following is a list of the current wines available.
Chardonnay - $13 (Sold Out)
The 2007 Chardonnay is a lightly oaked, bright in
color, and taste. This wine offers rare subtleties that you wont find in
many Chardonnays. Slight hints of nutmeg and saffron, this wine goes excellently
with a white sauce pasta or seafood bolognase.
Cabernet Sauvignon - $18
Slowly fermented over a two week period and stored in
new American oak, this wine will surprise the palate with the customary
Washington signature fruityness which quickly changes to a full flavored bold
wine, rich in tannins and just the right acid balance. You'll be surprised
that each sip brings the full range of flavors as the first sip with earthy
aromas, and the tastes of dark cherries, cocoa, and dates.
Merlot - $17 (Sold Out)
This is the winemakers favorite for 2007.... We're not
telling you why. We're hoping to have some cases left over for our
personal cellar :-)
2007 Aglianico - $22 (Sold Out)
We are excited to introduce
Washington grown Aglianico. Aglianico is an ancient grape that has a ton
of history. White Cellars is first winery in Washington to

dark wines with a unique flavor found only in the Aglianico varietal. The
wine has a pleasant rock candy aroma and a full bodied flavor accentuated with
roasted tomatoes, green pepper and raisins.
The Brick - $17 (Sold Out)
The 07 Syrah from
Yakima valley really comes through in this rich red blend. 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
Lucid - $17 (Sold Ou)
This is another Syrah blend with
