Merlot | $27.00

Whitman Hill 2021 Merlot

Tinged with seductive crimson hues and a deep ruby core, this wine is marked by balance and elegance.  Our Merlot is redolent of smooth milk chocolate supported by inviting raspberry and black plum aromas.  The palate reveals a complex orchestration of fresh, lively acids, silky tannins, and mid-palate density with deliberate gradient transitions between flavors.  Milk chocolate flavors scintillate through the mid-palate exhibiting a soft and open mouthfeel.  This Merlot possesses the ideal combination of being approachable now, while also developing a lovely complexity over the next decade.  Spends 20 months in a combination of new and once used French oak barrels along with some Hungarian with fruit sourced from our estate vineyard.

Syrah | $25.00

Whitman Hill 2020 SYRAH

Provocatively deep ruby to purple tinged, this 100% Syrah is sinfully decadent. The hedonistic character abounds in the meaty nose all the way through the finish. Prominent aromatics of fresh fennel, tarragon, and chive blossom compliment the cornucopia of vibrant flavors that unfold in waves as the wine evolves in the glass. Baking spices, bread dough, and sweet oak are among the sweet and savory flavors with bombshell notes of black plum, blackberry jelly, and meat juices that pack a wallop through the mid-palate. Lush and textured throughout, with focused, soft tannins, integrated oak regimen, and succulent acidity, this Syrah is reminiscent of northern Rhône beauties. It finishes with Yakima Valley hallmark flavors of scorched earth and blueberry compote. Spends 28 months in a combination of new and once-filled French and neutral oak barrels with fruit sourced from our estate vineyard.

Cabernet Franc | $25.00

Whitman Hill 2020 Cabernet Franc

Upon first inspection, this deep ruby, almost purple, hued beauty expounds intense aromatic notes of sagebrush and roasted poblano chile, but after diving back into the glass, one will detect lovely wafts of blackberry preserves.  The vintner’s judicious barrel management allows for vanilla to emerge and make your mouth salivate as hints of toasty oak on the soft and creamy palate give a rich warmth and depth.  On the finish, chewy tannins and persistent flavors of caramel and vanilla lightly recede into the distance.  Decanting a couple of hours before enjoying will encourage the Cabernet Franc character to develop even further.  Spends 20  months in a combination of new and once used French oak barrels along with some Hungarian with fruit sourced from our estate vineyard.

 Cabernet Sauvignon | $27.00

Whitman Hill 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon

Our signature varietal displays classic Cabernet traits that can be expected from vintage to vintage.  Deep ruby in color, our Cabernet opens with a supple nose of dark plum and cassis, followed soon by subtle yet luscious undertones of cedar and black raspberry.  A plush and fruit-forward mouthfeel gives way to the mid-palate, which is framed by gorgeous, cocoa-dusted silky tannins.  Full-bodied structure and a fine silky texture enhance the finish.  Similar to recent vintages, our Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a bolder side, both delicious now and age worthy through the next decade.  Spends 23 months in new and once filled French oak barrels with fruit sourced from our estate vineyard.

Chardonnay | $20.00

Whitman Hill 2019 Yakima Valley Chardonnay
