Tasting notes

From the extraordinary 2018 vintage, this Rainmaker is a stunning voyage into the labyrinth we’ve constructed by blending classic Yakima Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Olsen and Boushey Vineyards with deep round rich Malbec from Sagemoor and Klipsun. Such depth and color, oh my! Up front the palate is packed with black cherry, blackberry and sweet vanilla cream, leading to herby, crushed stone on the long and tantalizing finish. Silky and plush now, but designed to travel for many, many a mile.

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

Movie pairing: Rainman or Singin’ 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.
