“Stand Alone” has always been the best of the best, so to speak. Each year, in our opinions, we take the best barrels we have. We set it aside and allow it to age for additional 6 months in 100% new oak. It is a matter of making the best wine possible, from the best vineyard and best barrels. This year the “Stand Alone” comes from 50%Wallula Vineyard, which stands about 1300 feet and overlooks the Columbia River. The cool breezes at night, the reflection from the water, all plays an important part in this one of a kind vineyard. And 50% Boushey Vineyard, which is one of Yakima Valley’s finest vineyards. Dick Boushey manages much of Red Mountain but the very best comes from his own vineyard. Horse Heaven Hills & Yakima Valley.
