Cadence
 
Cadence remains one of the best kept secrets in Washington wine—producing wines that are both singular in their pursuit and also incredibly reasonably priced for their quality. These Bordeaux-influenced blends, solely from the Red Mountain AVA, are among our favorite to drink and to cellar every year.  Don’t expect fruit bombs here, though, as the wines are classically built in style—they remind us of old-school Napa wines in that way.

Cayuse Wines & Christophe Baron Champagne

Newly Arrived / Arriving Tomorrow!


We adore the wines from Christophe Baron. His cuvees have been some of the most allocated and in-demand wines from Walla Walla for over twenty years. Representing the pinnacle of the region’s reds, we’re never surprised when top notch scores are released, just pleased as punch that we continue to be able to offer you these mailing list-mostly gems:
