2013 Aluel "Coat of Arms"

2017 Seattle Wine Awards Double Gold Medal Winner!
2018 Sip Northwest Awards Judges Pick Winner!

The "Coat of Arms" is our flagship Bordeaux-style red blend that captures the essence of the very best that the vintage has to offer. 

For our 2013 vintage, we blended 40% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petit Verdot sourced from some of the top vineyards in Columbia Valley to create a display of deep aromatics of blackberry, currants, plums, kirsch liqueur, and cassis, with notes of pine and mossy, Douglas Fir.  The flavors are exceptionally smooth and supple, with the terroir and fruit essence striking an elegant balance to showcase the soft tannins and approachability of this classic Washington red.
