Sleight of Hand Cellars was formally established in the Spring of 2007 by partners Jerry and Sandy Solomon and Trey Busch, who also serves as winemaker. Our focus is twofold: To make the best wines in Washington State from the best vineyards, and to have fun while doing it! We now own or control the farming on 5 different sites within the Walla Walla Valley, the Horse Heaven Hills, and Red Mountain. This fruit makes up the bulk of our production of our wines.

Our Wines

  • 2008 Illusionist Cabernet Sauvignon

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • For lovers of Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine was built for you! Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Syrah, it is dark, rich, and built for a long life in the cellar. This wine was aged for 23 months in 60% new French oak. Composed of all free-run juice, it is black in the center, dark red to the rim. This wine smells like a bowl of plums and black cherries, surrounded by fresh ground coffee beans. It is rich and ripe in the mouth, with flavors of currants, more cherries and blackberries, and surrounded by a cloak of finely grained tannins. The natural acids frame the finish, giving this wine the ability to lay down for a decade or more!

  • 2008 Archimage Red Blend

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • The 2008 Archimage is a remarkable wine, showing its class and pedigree from the vineyards it was sourced from. This micro-cuvee of 9 barrels was aged for 23 months in 50% new French oak, and is a blend of 50% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc, and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is packed with dense, opulent fruit such as blackberries and black cherries, wrapped by a cloak of tobacco and green olives from the Cabernet Franc. Bright acids from the cooler 2008 vintage help carry the flavors on and on. This wine will easily cellar for a decade. Decanting is recommended if opening while this wine is still young.

  • 2010 Magician

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • The 2010 Magician is a blend if 85% Gewurztraminer and 15% Riesling, all sourced from the Evergreen Vineyard, located high above the Columbia River Gorge in central Washington State. These vines, grown in shallow flood deposits over fractured basalt, produce intense minerality in the finished wines. Aromas and flavors of fresh picked apples and pears, along with an intense note of cinnamon and spice, are all carried by the crisp acids from start to finish. With just a hint of sweetness for balance, the 2010 Magician makes the perfect pairing for anything from spicy BBQ to asian dishes, as well as simply sipping on your deck on a warm summer day! Enjoy now or cellar for another 2-5 years.

  • 2009 Spellbinder

    • Overview

    • Tasting Notes

    • The 2009 Spellbinder is a delicious blend of 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 10% Sangiovese, and 9% Syrah. Sourced from several vineyards in the Walla Walla, Red Mtn., Yakima, and Horse Heaven AVA’s, this year’s Spellbinder is full of red fruits like cherries and raspberries, as well as a great spice component. The acids balance out the richness of the wine and make this the perfect food wine. It was aged in neutral French oak barrels for 11 months, which allows the fruit component of the wine to really stand out. Enjoy this with roasted meats and pasta, and remember to share it with your friends!
