Overview of the Wine
Parvata means “mountain” in sanskrit, and is the name for our southern Rhône-inspired blend, grown mostly in the sandy, loamy soils of the lower section of our Red Mountain vineyard, which bring to the wine a good degree of finesse and high-toned aromatic notes, white pepper, dried herbs and grapefruit peel.

Fermented after cold soak in concrete vats, it receives a gentle extraction before being barreled down to spend approximately 18 months in a small percentage of new French oak, utilizing both large format puncheons and barrels. The blend will change each year and will eventually be driven by Grenache as more of our plantings come into production. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Grape / Blend
57% Mourvèdre, 25% Syrah and 18% Grenache

Origin
Red Mountain, Washington 

Tasting Notes
An orchestra of blueberry, blackberry, lilac and Asian spice fill the nose. As the wine hits your palate, you are encompassed by a perfectly balanced mélange of huckleberry, dried thyme, beet root and baking chocolate that melds perfectly with the textured tannins followed by a length that goes on for several minutes.
