Story

Pitch is an exclusive bottling produced by one of our partners in Washington State. We are proud to offer this wine as an extreme value (year in and year out) from the Columbia Valley in Washington State.

Firm, focused and dense, with blackberry, cherry, sandalwood and grilled rosemary flavors, coming together seamlessly on the long, vivid finish.
Old world structure showing flavors of cassis, black cherry and cocoa with leather, tobacco and savory spice on a balanced toasty finish. A textbook example of delicious Columbia Valley Cabernet.

The 2014 vintage for Washington State was as close to ideal as possible. Warm temperatures and an abundant, early crop produced picture-perfect grapes with soft tannins in the reds. There was no rain, no early freezes and a harvest that was mostly done by late October—about two weeks ahead of usual. The vintage did not have heat spikes either and when complemented by cool nighttime temperatures, the acidity remains intact resulting in a balanced and rounded wine with mild tannins.
