Sun River Vintners

Past Vintages

2008 Nebbiolo

Coyote Canyon Vineyard

100% Nebbiolo. This is again an Italian darling. This Pisano takes on some nice currants and plums and dares to be challenged with big bold food flavors. Grab some salami and some really strong parmesan and O Sole Mio!

2008 Gewurztraminer

Smasne Vineyard
Yakima Valley AVA

Gewürztraminer. The perfect complement for foods with spice or an easy drinking wine for the deck with cheese and fruit. Rich with notes of citrus and melon, this is not your Grandma’s dessert wine. This is a savvy and spicy gem to enjoy year long.

2008 Merlot

100% Merlot. Dark red fruit with just the right touch of smoke. Full bodied with lively acidity. Enjoy this bold beauty all by its lonesome or marry it with a great piece of beef or lighten up with a tomato basil soup and really get happy with some good stinky cheese. This is a wine for those that really appreciate discovering a wine for the time.

2008 Sangiovese

Bouchey Vinyard

100% Sangiovese. This is an easy drinking, full-bodied wine with some nice soft tannins. With classic flavors of dark cherries, plum and cinnamon, this wine is the quintessential wine for all things Italian and any time you want a wine with a hint of spice at the end.

Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc

Artz Vineyard, Red Mountain

This is a magical blend of 51% Semillon and 49% Sauvignon Blanc that will bring even die hard Red Wine purists to the table. Semillon long adored by Winemakers for its creamy smooth texture and its willingness to pair beautifully with most any food, when blended with the bright crisp citrus notes from the Sauvignon Blanc – it’s perfect! And if Thai inspired dishes are in your taste spot, you have met the perfect match.

2007 Red Table Wine

Yakima Valley AVA
50% Syrah, 33% Cabernet, 17% Merlot

A big and bold blend that showcases the best of Washington’s Columbia Valley grapes. A wine for all occasions and most any food. This Red Table is rather confused as the title suggests ‘easy drinking’ this is one big, full-bodied rich wine. With notes of pepper from the Syrah – the big berry from the Cab and the elegance of the Merlot on the finish, this is one you’ll want to make a long-term friendship with.
