The Sestina is an ancient form of poetry from
Medieval France. Just as a modern poet can fill this
form with new expressions, we use the traditional
Bordeaux blend to express Washington. Sestina is
our vision for an old vine, complex blend where all
of the components complement each other. This
wine is designed for the cellar, so the emphasis is
on structure, balance, and complexity.

2011 Sestina: Jumps from the glass with
penetrating aromas of deep black fruits, vanilla,
saddle leather, jasmine and wet stone.
This year’s Sestina is broad-complex with
black and blue fruits, bitter chocolate,
fresh loam, and lava rocks. A paean to old-vine
Washington terroir with many years
of enjoyment to give.

This year’s Sestina is broadshouldered, yet remains poised on the palate, complex with black and blue fruits, bitter chocolate, fresh loam, and lava rocks. A paean to old-vine Washington terroir with many years of enjoyment to give.
