Translucent and earthbound. The proverbial 1950’s ladies’ evening bag: Worn leather, perfume, broken cigarette, eyebrow pencil, faint red lipstick and a few loose coins. Elegant. Sensual. Mysterious. The everything.

“From a site just off Sunnyside road (not far from Cayuse), the 2016 Barbera Jack’s Vineyard is another saturated ruby/plum-colored effort that offers plenty of Rocks style in its blackcurrants, olive, dried game, and pepper. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and seamless on the palate, with nicely integrated acidity and a fresh, focused, lively style, drink it over the coming 4-6 years.”

92 Points, James Suckling (v2015)
“This is a rich take on barbera and very different from the Casasmith Northbridge Vineyard. Matured for longer in barriques, it delivers plenty of spiced-berry custard notes and a silky edge to the dense and deep-set summer berries on offer. The palate has a long, smooth and alluring feel. Dense, soft and deep. Drink now.”

Vineyard
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Jack’s Vineyard (100%): Stony, ancient riverbed, located on the floor of the Walla Walla Valley. The soil is very cobbly, with Freewater cobbly loam over gravel over sand, dried riverbed. In the rocky soils of this part of the valley, low vigor keeps flavors concentrated. Planted in 1999.
