This wine was made in partnership with winemaker Charlie Hoppes, from Wine Boss and Fidelitas wineries in Richland, Wash. The fruit was donated by Lonesome Spring Ranch on the Rattlesnake Mountain bench near Benton City, Wash. The Fruit was hand sorted, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel. The wine underwent a brief barrel aging of seven months creating this finely textured wine with a strong fruit middle, and a mildly spicy, oak finish.
