Rattlesnake Hills is one the most exciting AVA’s in Washington State.  The mountain vineyards coil through the ancient bluffs and mesas that sit above the Yakima Valley just north of the Willamette Valley in Oregon.  This is a rare and special wine.

This Pinot Noir is audacious, showing immense power and substance but with an elegant fragility that allows for supreme balance.  Aromatics of ham basted in cola yield to rich flavors of cherry bonbon, milk chocolate, and savory spice. All held together by silken threads of blackberry and coffee. Drink deep of this satin ambrosia and let the Velvet Venom course through your veins.

“Always carry a flagon of wine in case of snakebite and furthermore, always carry a small snake”.
