An exciting varietal in Washington State requiring just the right microclimate… found at Skyline Vineyard. The high elevation creates a cooler site, delivering delicate tannins and a silky, smooth mouthfeel - expressions of crushed cherry, raspberry, plum with deep floral aromas of cut iris and peony flowers. Pair with animal, vegetable, mineral - roast turkey, salmon, lamb.
