Tasting notes

Incomparable velvetosity, with vibrant crushed stone, lavish flower and blackberry aromas and dynamic black cherry, olive and spicebox flavors that glide along its fine tannin architecture. Generous and friendly now, but destined for a long, long ride. So freaking good it will make you want to retire. Congrats Papa! Make it rain y’all!

Food pairing: Roasted maitake shepherd’s pie or roasted beef tenderloin au poivre

Movie pairing: Rainman orSingin’ in the Rain, depending on your jam

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
Rainmaker began life as a wine club offering in 2010. It has evolved to become our most fruit forward cabernet sauvignon, blended with malbec. The Yakima Valley is the source for all the fruit in this cuvée, most often it is from Olsen's extraordinary vineyards just west of Red Mountain. We named this wine Rainmaker during a conversation about what it means to be running a business with Chris's Dad. We poured the 93 point 2013 at Wine Spectator's New York Wine Experience in 2017. We were at a booth between Chateaux Margaux, Lynch Bages and Mouton Rothchild. We belonged there.
