The 2016 Conjurer was aged for 12 months in 27% new French oak. Hailing mostly from our Estate Blocks at Red Mountain Vineyard and Blue Mountain Vineyard, this wine is a classic Washington State Bordeaux- style blend. It shows tremendous weight and concentration; while holding on to its elegance. The mouth-filling palate and medium-weight, fleshy tannins, are buoyed by food-friendly acid and a long, long finish. This wine has a gorgeous nose dominated by herbal notes from the Cabernet Franc, as well as savory spices, like nutmeg and cinnamon, and a flavor profile of dark fruit, like plum and blackberries. The Conjurer cries out to be paired with your favorite steak, and to be shared with your favorite people (or just sipped in front of a roaring fire--with or without company).

The 2016 Conjurer Red Blend is a blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot. It has beautiful polish and elegance as well as lovely black and blue fruits, medium to full body, integrated acidity, and a clean, pure, seamless style. It's a smoking value that will keep for 7-8 years.

Supple and focused, with vibrant black cherry, clove and orange zest flavors that lead to polished tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2023. 2,000 cases made.

A very bright and modern wine that carries dark-plum and blackberry aromas and flavors and delivers a very composed and approachable palate. Blend of 43% cabernet sauvignon, 32% cabernet franc, 21% merlot and 4% petit verdot.

This early release from this vintage is a blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. The aromas lean into the green, with notes of savory fresh herb along with flower, plum, cherry, black currant and spice. Plush ripe blue- and black-fruit flavors provide appeal.

The 2016 The Conjurer is a value-priced Bordeaux blend that offers up notions of red-black fruits, tobacco leaf and espresso. Medium-bodied and somewhat ephemeral, it doesn't reveal the concentration, character or intensity of the more ambitious cuvées.
