MOOSE CANYON PREMIUM RED WINES – 2018

All Moose Canyon wines are $30/bottle, reduced to $24/bottle for members of American Wine Society, or if a (mixed) case is purchased.  Also for $8/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  All are produced in limited quantities, and we expect the 2018 wines (bottled September 19, 2020) will sell out this summer.

2018 Malbec
Purple, dark and inky, with aromas and flavors of blackberry, black cherry, plum, cedar, huckleberry, white pepper, sage, and cocoa.  Balanced and full bodied, the tannins are smooth and the finish is long.

SISTERS RULE WINES these wines are all available for custom labeling, and priced at $15/bottle or less.

2018 Chardonnay
Refreshing dry white wine leads with aromas of poached pear, green apple and spice, followed by juicy flavors that add melon, lemon zest and grapefruit.   $12/bottle or $5/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  Case price (purchase any 12+ bottles to make a case) is $10/bottle.  Supply of this wine is limited.

2019 Pinot Gris
This  100% Pinot Gris has intense tropical aromas and flavors including lime, honey, honeysuckle, green apple, kiwi, pear, peach, pineapple, melon and banana cream pie.  The well balanced lingering palate, and refreshing acidity make this a great summer wine so take it home and let your imagination run wild.  $12/bottle or $5/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  Case price (purchase any 12+ bottles to make a case) is $10/bottle.

2019 Dry Rose
A blend of 36% Merlot, 34% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc, 6% Sangiovese, and 4% Grenache, this easy drinking and food-friendly Rose has aromas of fresh strawberries, peaches, and a zest of kiwis.  The palate continues to be generous with bright flavors of watermelon and raspberries.  The wine finishes off with impeccably balanced acidity and a touch (.6%) of residual sugar, exiting the palate with a clean and refreshing finish.  We like this wine with Lumpia, and with pizza or pasta that has white sauce.  $12/bottle or $5/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  Case price (purchase any 12+ bottles to make a case) is $10/bottle.

2019 Off Dry Riesling
Leading with a full floral nose of jasmine and honeysuckle, and then followed by flavors of lemon, apple, pear, melon, honey and mango.  The crisp acid nicely balances the slight (2% RS) sweetness, the body will coat your entire mouth, and the finish will keep you going back for more.  Buy two bottles, because the first one will be gone before you know it.  And if you’re having Thai or Indian food with a little heat, this is the wine for you.  $12/bottle or $5/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  Case price (purchase any 12+ bottles to make a case) is $10/bottle.

2017 Merlot
Medium bodied red wine with aromas and flavors of red cherries, chocolate, leather and licorice, and with soft tannins.  This Merlot is a “gateway” red, popular with white wine lovers.  It is 100% Merlot, from Horse Heaven Hills, and goes particularly well with Papa Murphy’s cowboy pizza. $15/bottle or $6/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  Case price (purchase any 12+ bottles to make a case) is $12/bottle.  This supply is dwindling.

2017-2018 Red Blend
Yep you read it right, it’s two years blended.  And it’s 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 9% Syrah, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% Tempranillo, and 2% Sangiovese so it’s got everything in it.  Plum, blackberry, black current, herbal notes, cedar, soft tannins and a nice smooth finish.  Try this wine with lasagna or even a lean steak, you won’t be disappointed.  $15/bottle or $6/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  Case price (purchase any 12+ bottles to make a case) is $12/bottle.

2018 Syrah
Dark fruit aromatics of blackberry jam, sweet plums with roasted figs. The palate is round with flavors of bacon fat, smoked meats, and savory exotic spices.  The wine finishes with a silk like texture that lingers on the palate showcasing the complex dark fruit elements.  Swing by Longhorn for a pulled pork sandwich to enjoy with this wine. $15/bottle or $6/glass to enjoy in the tasting room.  Case price (purchase any 12+ bottles to make a case) is $12/bottle.

Case prices:  You can mix and match all wines (both wineries in the same case) to add up to a case (12 bottles) and get the case price.  Case prices are extended to any quantities purchased by members of Moose Canyon Wine Club, American Wine Society, and PSAWBC.
