From the esteemed, but now gone, Ramseyer Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. Over 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the remainder Cabernet Franc and Merlot. A blend of 10 barrels that were vinified by John Ramseyer, then finished and bottled by Charlie Hoppes, it has the ripeness and complexity that Ramseyer was known for, and the citrus and spice that made Ramseyer unique. Rich cocoa and mocha, damson, lavender and loganberry, with lime rind, cedar and Asian spice in the finish. This is the final wine produced from this vineyard and is sure to please both fans of the Ramseyer wines of the past and fans of ded.reckoning.

This wine shows a classic Yakima Valley profile,
with aromas and flavors of orange peel, fresh green
herbs and cherry, along with barrel spice accents.
It’s made in a restrained style, with tart flavors carrying
on the finish. —S.S.
