    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • Following in the footsteps of our 2006 vintage, the 2007 Gård Cabernet Sauvignon from our estate, Lawrence Vineyards, was aged in 100% new French oak barrels, and features a brighter, more complex Cabernet in comparison with 2006. Rich with fruit, the wine is lush and chewy. The ripe berry flavors lead to notes of chocolate, coffee beans, toffee and hints of smoked tobacco that are wrapped around well-managed tannins and new oak. The wine finishes bold, with round complexity.

  • Dry Riesling

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • This 100% Estate Riesling from the Lawrence Vineyard comes from the high elevation, south-facing slope of the Frenchman Hills. The fruit was hand picked at peak maturity, gently whole cluster pressed, neutral oak fermented, and aged sur lees for seven months prior to bottling. The wine is a layered gem, rich and generous -- possessing weight and depth, with hints of fresh melons, stone fruits, citrus, green apple and honey with undertones of leesy caramel and lush minerality. This dry style Riesling (0.4%) captures the purity of fruit with a balance of racy acidity. This wine will continue to develop for years to come. Selected on Seattle Metropolitan magazine's list of Top 100 Wines of the Northwest, Sept. 2008

    • Bright dried apricot and pear nose. Silky texture with mouth-filling sweetness that is not cloying, but is incredibly rich ending with clean acidity and a lingering finish that keeps you wanting more. A great stand alone dessert wine that will also pair well with stone fruit oriented desserts. Serve well chilled. This wine will only improve with 5+ years in the bottle.

  • Altruism Pinot Gris

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • Pale golden yellow color, with a nose of honeydew melon, pineapple core and some waxy dried stone fruits. Swirling brings up more weight, but a spicy tone at the same time. The palate is clean, fruit forward and slightly off dry. The acidity balances the sweetness nicely and provides the framework for a great summer white.

    • Salmon berry in color, with an intense nose of strawberry jam and a hint of spice. Swirling adds hints of peach and citrus to the sweetness of the strawberry and a touch of fresh herbs. The palate is round and creamy, with loads of jam like flavors. Just enough acid to balance the volume and texture making this a wonderful summer appetizer wine.

  • Viognier

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • Pale straw in color, with an explosive nose of spring flowers and citrus, combined with a light toastiness. Swirling makes the nose leap from the glass, allowing you to smell it without having to put your nose in it. With some air it begins to show more stone fruit like peach and apricot with a little more weight. The palate is bright and polished revealing lacings of minerals and seamless transitions. Even a hint of citrus rind on the palate adds intrigue. Fun to drink now but will age gracefully for the next 2-4 years.

    • The color of pale straw, with notes of peach blossoms and pear. A warm yellow fruit brings barrel spice and complexity. Swirling adds nuance to the nose while bringing up an almost melon rind quality. The palate is dense, round and creamy with a spine of minerality and acid to bring the wine to the finish. There is only a hint of residual sugar making this a serious wine for many occasions.
