Forward blackberry and toasty oak aromas, full center palate of blackberry and cherry fruit, nice balance and a long, smooth finish. Also our 2007 C E Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley AVA is 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Dark, nearly black color, fully developed ripe black fruit and spicy aromas. Blackberry, black current layered with oak accents. Full center palate and long, smooth finish.

Our Story

Our Estate vineyard was planted in the spring of 2000. Pinot Noir makes up the majority of the vineyard including Pinot Noir Clones #115, #113 and #13. Lake Chelan's cool south shore has proven to be an ideal location for Pinot Noir. Other varietals include Merlot, Chardonnay and Viognier.
In the winery great care is taken to preserve the character of the fruit and the unique expression of our vineyard.
The wines produced from Stillwater Creek fruit are the ideal counterpart to the estate wines. Bordeaux varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petite Verdot are proving to be among the best in the state. These grapes produce wines of exceptional varietal character and
complex blends.
