2013 ANVIL Chardonnay, French Creek Vineyard

Our 2013 French Creek Chardonnaycame in very early (September 9), and was whole-cluster pressed the same day. The free-run and light-press juice was chilled overnight and racked before fermentation began. Once started, the juice was racked to barrels for a slow, cool 4-week fermentation period on mostly new and 1-year French oak. The initial notes of bright citrus and tart peach have given way to beautiful light tropical fruits, a round thick mouthfeel, and just a hint of smoke and butter on the finish.

2013 ANVIL Cabernet Sauvignon Dionysus

Old vine Cabernet Sauvignon has become the remarkable flagship variety of Dionysus Vineyard. In 2008, we started sourcing Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from block 12 and later on experimented with Petit Verdot from Block 11 which adds generous flavors and great texture. This wine is rich, full, creamy, and intense, with aromas of black pepper, violets, black currants, and dried herbs, followed by flavors of spice, cayenne pepper, dark chocolate, dried fruit, red cherry, and cobbler.

2014 Forgeron Chardonnay, Columbia Valley

Our Chardonnay is styled after the world-renowned white wines from the Burgundy region of France. 2014 Was a very warm vintage and we were diligent to pick the grapes earlier and then do a separate hard press from a light press to minimize phenol extraction that can cause bitterness and heaviness. The result is a beautiful, cooler-style Chardonnay--like one would find in Burgundy--with balanced acids and good typicity.

2013 Forgeron Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is ‘ruler’ of the reds and reveals the seriousness of a winemaker. Firm, structured, genuine and age-worthy; this wine is testament to the patience and restraint used in the vineyard and winemaking process. Bigger and bolder, underlines our commitment to work with Walla Walla fruit which is more mature and available now compared to when we started the winery 15 years ago. Minnick Hills and Pepper Bridge vineyards in Walla Walla, are VINEA certified and align with our commitment to work with vineyards where management has the utmost respect of the land. Birch Creek Merlot and Cab are big and bold, while Petit Verdot adds smoothness and dimension.

2013 Forgeron Zinfandel, Columbia Valley

Since first taking a chance on Washington Zinfandel when we started the winery in 2001, this wine has come to be what we would consider a cult classic. With a dedicated, passionate fan-base that continually requests our Zinfandel and waits in anticipation for each new release, we are thrilled that winemaker Marie-Eve was so determined to persevere in making Zinfandel here in Washington where grape ripening can be problematic and growing requires expertise, patience, and a lot of heart. Because of the difficultly growing good Zinfandel, we are limited to only a few sites throughout the State, thus requiring that we keep production to just a couple hundred cases a year. This wine is available to our Société club members for just a short period of time every year (or with each new Societe sign-up) so don't wait to stock up!

2014 Forgeron Primitivo

Primitivo is a genetic 'cousin' to Zinfandel. We like to compare and contrast our Primitivo and Zinfandel; although the varietals are very similar, the growing sites have very different conditions (warmer in Wahluke for Primitivo), and the Zinfandel gets harvested up to 30 days later than the Primitivo. The Primitivo is more rustic and for the 2014 vintage, we blended a bit of Zinfandel in to mellow it out a bit. Full-bodied, spicy, and creamy, with flavors of anise and caramel. Perfect for tomato-based dishes like spicy sausage pizza or eggplant parmesan.

2013 Forgeron Cabernet Sauvignon RED MOUNTAIN

We like to highlight the many faces of the vineyards we find in WA state. Klipsun is one of the oldest vineyards on Red Mountain and the arid conditions are perfectly suited to craft deep, powerful Cabernet Sauvignons. This Cabernet is composed of 90% Klipsun Vineyard Cabernet, and 10% Petit Verdot from Dionysus Vineyard. The result is classic Red Mountain: creamy, savory, bold, firm, and masculine with big tannins.

Forgeron Walldeaux Smithie 14, Columbia Valley

Walldeaux Smithie is a non-vintage blend to create more consistency and density. Blending 3 consecutive vintages allows a full tasting experience with complex layers from the “mature”  vintages (barrel-aged 12-24 months), combined with fruity, youthful and juicy mouth-filling flavors from the “newer” vintage, usually a wine of the year aged a short time in seasoned barrels. These bright, young flavors deliciously complete the more polished and refined characteristics from the previous vintages. With the highest quality in mind, Walldeaux Smithie offers exceptional value for its price.
