Winemakers Notes - Crafted from fruit grown on Eastern Washington's Wahluke Slope, the Desert Wind Ruah is an affirmation of the area's viticultural prowess. Our full bodied, Bordeaux-inspired blend is enveloped in a lush core of concentrated blackberry fruit with a hint of anise on the palate. The wine has hints of toasted oak and spice and a rich garnet color, which is complemented by soft, velvety tannins and a lingering finish. Enjoy the Ruah alone or with grilled meats, tomato-based entrees, and soft cheeses. Rated 90+
