Soos Creek Winery is a tiny, artisan winemaker in Washington's Columbia Valley who believes in doing things the "old fashined" way. Each vintage they offer 6-8 different wines, making a grand total of around 2000 cases. Over the last 20+ years their reputation as winery that does things the right way has allowed them access to some of Columbia's top vineyards and growers, including: Champoux, Ciel du Cheval, Slide Mountain, Elephant Mountain, Dineen, Sagemoor, Charbonneau, and Klipsun.
This 2012 bottling of their 12th Artists Series Red Blend honors the grower of this fantastic fruit, Jim Holmes of Ciel du Cheval and Paul Champoux of Champoux Vineyard.
A superbly balanced, beautiful, Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc that displays lush notes of dark berries, dark cherries, black currant, blueberry, with notes of dark chocolate and toasted oak.
