The Sestina is a poetic form from Medieval France. Just as a contemporary poet can use an old form like the Sestina to express modern ideas, we use the traditional Bordeaux blend to make modern wines that express Washington fruit. Sestina is our vision for an old vine blend where the focus is on structure, balance, and complexity. This wine is designed for the cellar, but is enjoyable now. 2010 Sestina – Complex nose of black cherry, jasmine, saddle leather and minerals. The palate is rounded and complete, with fresh herbs, leather, black raspberry, currant, and black cherry notes. The finish is complex and long, giving much to think about. A few years in the cellar will reward this wine with extra complexity and nuance.
