About The Tenor Wines
The drive at Tenor is to make world-class wine from the vineyards in Washington. We are very unique. As every wine lover knows, due to the weather of a certain growing year, different vintages produce different classes of wine. At Tenor we only release a wine when we feel it is world-class. What does this mean? This means, if you were to line up the greatest Merlot's (for example) from 2008, Tenor would be among that list. To this end, we will declassify any wine we don't feel meets that criteria. For this reason, no two vintage releases will see the same line up of wines, because no two years growing seasons are the same. In 2007, it was Merlot and Malbec. In 2008, it is Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah. In 2009 it was Cabernet and Malbec. 2010 showcased the first white wines- Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. This type of standard instills a trust in our label; that what we choose to put it in a Tenor bottle is world-class.
About the 1:1 ("one of one")
While the goal of the Tenor wines is to make world-class single varietals, the goal of the 1:1 is to produce a world-class Bordeaux style blend from the best Washington vineyards. Traditionally, the 1:1 will be a blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. While each growing season is different and will therefore produce different single varietals for the Tenor label, each year in Washington is exceptional in some regard. We can therefore commit to our mailing list that the only wine we promise to make every year is the 1:1. Our goal with this wine is to produce the most complete wine possible; a wine that would be company with the great blends across the world. As 1st release of the 1:1 has shown, we are on our way.
