Wine Press Northwest “Wine of the Week”
Gordon Brothers Family Vineyards 2007 Tempranillo

Appellation: Columbia Valley

Son-in-law Marc Nelson tends the vines for the Gordons, and he and winemaker Tim Henley teamed up for this Pasco, Wash., winery’s remarkable debut with this variety. Cinnamon bark, cocoa powder, black cherries, dill weed and smoked green peppercorn aromas set the table for a remarkably silky drink of blueberries, cherries, chocolate and coffee that’s finished with some mint. Rated “Outstanding” by Wine Press Northwest magazine.

Price: $65
Cases produced: 83
Food matches: Try this rich red wine with braised lamb shanks, short ribs or a hearty beef stew.

It’s only available at our tasting room in Woodinville or at the winery. If you’re interested in ordering, send an email to info@gordonwines.com …only a few cases left!
