The Estate
This wine comes entirely from our estate Double Canyon Vineyard and is crafted to showcase the best characteristics of our land. Our 90-acre parcel is planted to 1,850 vines per acre, exceeding typical Washington standards; this high density produces less fruit on each individual vine, thus increasing overall quality. The vineyard is planted to a range of different clones that have been selected for the characteristics they have displayed from our site over the past decade of winegrowing. The fruit is hand-harvested and we perform daily pump overs for extraction. Once fermentation is accomplished, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 16 months.
Vintage
2015 proved to be the warmest Washington vintage on record; the growing season started quickly, veraison began 15 days ahead of schedule and the vines continued to hit all growing benchmarks ahead of pace. The progression of the season resulted in the earliest harvest in Double Canyon’s history, culminating on October 21st. Early cold weather coupled with warm wind events led to a lighter than normal crop load, which ultimately contributed to the expression of exceptional quality in the glass.
