2014 Tribute Red

This wine was created to commemorate the life of our founder, John Walker. John was a true visionary and he created Kestrel Vintners to craft wines of both superior quality and value. John saw the potential of the Washington wine industry during its infancy and started Kestrel Vintners in order to take part in the growth of the industry. This complex blend is a tribute to John Walker’s role in the Washington State wine industry. It is a nontraditional red blend created to showcase the smoothness and complexity of our wines.

Your glass is filled with an enticing deep ruby color. Aromas of bright red fruits such as strawberry and raspberry jump from the glass. All those wonderful fruit aromas mingle with a nice oak undertone adding a pleasant earthiness to the wine. Elements of dark chocolate, vanilla and fresh earth fill your mouth with each sip. The flavors of fig and mocha present a slight tannin on the finish. The wine has great structure with an elegant balance of oak and acidity.

2014 Mourvèdre 

Originating in Spain and commonly used as a blending grape, we find that the wild, floral, and spicy characteristics of Mourvèdre deserve a lable of its own. This Rhone variety thrives in Washington soil and weather, always providing an exciting arsenal of flavors. These particular grapes come from Olsen Estates Vineyard and were tenderly cared for from bud to hand-picking, much like our own Kestrel View Estate Vineyard.

The beautiful deep purple of this wine promises a wild adventure! We recommend decanting this wine to allow the nose and palate to fully blossom. The nose delights with black currant and wild rose. The palate adds to the floral element with notes of lavender and rosemary with a crisp acidity and smooth tannins. The finish is smooth and soothing- the perfect close to an exciting trip of the senses!
