Vineyards & growing season

Lady Hawk and Champoux Vineyards are two of the finest vineyards that Washington State has to offer, and both clearly represent the uniqueness of the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. Lady Hawk, owned and operated by Judi and Paul Champoux, is a very small parcel of land with less than five acres planted, all of which is Cabernet Sauvignon. Luckily there are no other wineries that receive grapes from this meticulously managed vineyard, thus leading to a truly one of a kind wine. Champoux Vineyard, which is located adjacent to Lady Hawk, produces beautifully supple and complex wines, many of which have become the most famous and highest rated to come out of Washington State.

The Columbia Valley has seen a shift from cooler vintages in 2010 and 2011 to the three warmest vintages of the last ten years in 2014, 2015, and 2016. In 2016, an early bud break was followed by warm temperatures from spring through fall. Although quite warm, it was an even growing season without some of the extreme temperatures of 2015. This has led to very balanced wines, showing great acidity, which are drinking great at an early age.

Vineyards & Growing Season

After a string of mostly moderate vintages, Washington State saw its warmest vintage in many years in 2015.  An early bud break was followed by warm July and August temperatures. Cooler September temperatures allowed grapes to hang in the vineyard longer and gain great complexity.  The heat also led to very small individual berries with immense structure and flavor.

Ciel du Cheval, Obelisco, and Quintessence Vineyards, all located in the Red Mountain AVA, are three of my favorites. These particular vineyards always express the terroir of Red Mountain especially well. The rich soils, dependable air drainage, and limited rainfall result in highly concentrated berries with dense skins, rich inky color, and daring complexity.

Vineyards

Ciel du Cheval

Quintessence

Lady Hawk

Obelisco

First planted in 1975, Ciel du Cheval is located in the heart of Red Mountain and grows some of the most sought after fruit in Washington State. The soil of loam on gravel beds, inhibits vigor which leads to small berries with intense concentration and flavor.

Sitting between 675 and 1025 feet elevation, Quintessence Vineyard receives incredible sun exposure along its southwest-facing slope. With a very strong focus on different clonal plantings, they are growing some of the most complex and unique Cabernet Sauvignon in Washington State.

Planted in 2002, Lady Hawk Vineyard sits in the southern section of the Horse Heaven Hills AVA. The 4.5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon grown at this sight are swept by the winds off the Columbia River, allowing longer hang time and more complex fruit.

Obelisco vineyard sits on the Red Mountain AVA and is known for its warm, dry sunny days and cool summer nights. The volcanic, rocky Red Mountain landscape was formed over 10,000 years ago with the Missoula Floods creating a new landscape with rich soil deposits over sand, silt and gravel.
