“Alluring color draws you in. Shimmering pale pink suggests that cherry blossom, apple skin, golden plum come juicy and layered. Watermelon rind, rose petals and star anise take you on a long ride to a delicious and mouthwatering finish.” – Winemaker Charles Smith

About Golden West

Golden West is rooted in completing the story of Washington State. Winemaker Charles Smith has successfully shown that Washington, like France, can produce great Rhone varietals, Bordeaux varietals and aromatic whites. We began our story of Burgundy with SIXTO; Golden West came from the idea that where Chardonnay lives, so does Pinot Noir.

There is plenty of high-end Pinot Noir in the market and not enough at a really good price that nearly everyone can afford. Golden West fulfills THE PROMISE of what we set out to do: to bring really great wine to a lot more people.

The label is meant to show you where the wine is grown; to show both the geography and that it’s handmade and agricultural. When people think of Pinot Noir, they think artisanal and small. The layers of color signal both the complexity and simplicity of what’s in the bottle.

Vineyard – Evergreen, Ancient Lakes (100%)

100% Pinot Noir, Washington State Wine, 12.5% Alcohol
Planted in 1998 by Jerry Milbrandt, the vineyard lies along a stretch of steep cliffs above the Columbia River, in the Ancient Lakes. A cooler site due to river influence, the soils are composed of fragmented basalt, gravel, silt, and caliche deposited during ice age floods. As with all of Milbrandt’s vineyards, Evergreen is farmed using sustainable practices. This site produces fruit with sublime mineral character and great acidity, a balance that winemakers adore.
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Vintage

The 2019 vintage was on the cooler side as it started slow with later-than-usual bud break and continued on to be fairly moderate throughout the year. Some vineyards had issues with an October freeze a bit earlier than usual, but our high-elevation vineyards have great air drainage which allows us to extend the growing season late into October without freeze. This yielded fantastic ripening and some awesome wines with incredible balance and character. Overall, we are excited about the wine produced in 2019, which has brought us more finesse, incredible flavors and lovely balance.
