Pepper Bridge, Seven Hills & XL

An homage to Washington’s iconic Mount Rainier, Tahoma is the sister wine to our famed Cima. Cellared nearly eight years in barrel, this wine ascends the pinnacle of expression.

Tasting Note

Adventurous scents ascend its glass through measured deliberation. A profound melding of black raspberry reduction, cassis, macerated black cherry, sundried tomato, leather and umami ride on a sheer stream of exotic wood spice. With blessings from the wine’s wonderful acidity, a racy, glass like, juicy texture immediately elevates laser focused fruit flavors that mirror the nose but are fresher in character. This stunner has downy soft tannins with a long- vibrant finish. —Charles P. Reininger, Winemaker
