Winemaker’s Select

2013 Super Yakima

We’re happy to present to you our first vintage of Super Yakima. Our Yakima Valley-AVA Sangiovese, Malbec and Merlot is our take on a Super Tuscan. From start to finish, this wine has undergone “royal” treatment. These grapes were carefully handpicked from our vineyard, aged in our highest quality French Oak barrels and bottled with top-of-the-line glass and natural cork.

Winemaker’s Notes:
The color is an enthralling medium ruby with garnet edges. The bouquet is rustic with aromas of warm-berry jams. Fresh-picked cherries and hints of hazelnut and coconut entice you for another taste. The medium body is complex with satiny acidity and mellow tannins. The velvety finish lingers with hints of elegant oak. All-around, this is a delightfully fruit-forward blend that takes you for a ride along its ever-changing palate. This wine will please you whether drinking it by itself or paired with a light beef dish.

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.

2013 Cabernet Franc

The color is dark and inky with a slight garnet color around the edges. In the aroma and on the palate you will find an abundance of ripe fruit flavors such as blackberry, plum, boysenberry, and blueberry pie. Beneath the layers of fruit some nice oak tones give the wine more depth and complexity while mixing with an earthy component that should make this wine age very well. This wine is rich and bold, yet retains balance and complexity.
