Our Wines

Our wines are first hand picked. We then sort and hand punch, then hand de-stem and finally barrel ferment. Quite a workout. We remove barrel heads for open fermentation and then reinsert barrel heads for aging. Lots of hands-on action and we are proud of it. We trust our hands, nose and mind to perform wine making and we think this shows in our product.

*2014 La Chanterelle Syrah, Wahluke Slope washingtonwineblog.com: "Sourced from the Wahluke Slope, this wine opens with dense aromatics of black plum, hoisin sauce, Chinese black tea and black cherry compote. There are dense flavors of dark chocolate shavings, sage, blackberry jam and suggestions of Earl Grey tea. The plush mouthfeel is lovely. Be sure to give this at least one hour decant if enjoying now. I can see this polished wine cellaring well into the next decade. Drink 2017-2026- 91"

*2014 La Chanterelle Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke Slope washingtonwineblog.com: "Sourced from the Riverbend Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, this was 100% whole cluster fermented. The wine was aged 20 months in near neutral oak prior to bottling in May 2016. The wine begins with aromatics of black cherry, cassis, anise, black raspberry and hints of leather. The palate is viscous, showing off the heat of the vintage. There are rich flavors of anise, creme de cassis, coffee grounds and suggestions of leather. You have to adore the plush texture and rich mouthfeel that head winemaker Donatas Pocus employs. This is an impressive follow up to their excellent 2013 Cabernet. Only two barrels made of this excellent Cabernet. Drink 2017-2026- 92"

*2013 La Chanterelle Syrah, Wahluke Slope AVA - 90pts. Dr. Owen J. Bargreen, International Wine Report: "The 2013 La Chanterelle Syrah is an excellent and balanced effort. Sourced from the Riverbend vineyard, the wine was aged 23 months in oak prior to bottling. Like their Cabernet offering, this needs some time in the decanter to settle. After an hour it unwinds with aromas of black olive, black cherry, and suggestions of wet stone and sage. There are flavors of red cherry, black raspberry, blackberry cobbler, and hints of cassis. Lovely mouthfeel, balance and texture. (Best 2016-2024) - March, 2016 (OB)"

*2013 La Chanterelle Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke Slope AVA - 92pts. Dr. Owen J. Bargreen, International Wine Report: "This wine follows up their highly impressive 2012 Cabernet. Aromatically reticent at first and needing a one hour decent, the wine reveals a bouquet of pencil shavings, anise, black cherry, black olive and oak. There are flavors reminiscent of blackberry preserves, roasted figs, coffee grounds and creme de cassis. Lovely weight and intensity, with a polished texture. This captures the heat of the vintage. (Best 2016-2025) - March, 2016 (OB)"
