2010 Reserve Yakima Valley Syrah

100 Cases Produced

Release Date: December 1, 2012

Release Price: 79.99

SOLD OUT

100% Yakima Valley Syrah from the Sheridan Vineyard ‘Old Block North’ and made by Scott Greer. Scott harvests the fruit for ded.reckoning based entirely on how it tastes in the vineyard, not according to more typical lab analysis. The fruit is then hand-picked, sorted and aged for just over two years in French Oak. Only 4 barrels of ded.reckoning Yakima Valley Reserve Syrah were produced in 2010. The resulting wine is nearly opaque blue/black with intense aromas of smoke, grilled meat, game, lanolin, fresh lavender and blackberries. It is dense and mouth coating with powerful flavors of berry syrup, currant, bacon and herb. It will certainly have a long life ahead in the cellar.
This is a monumental wine that certainly justifies being called the first ‘reserve’ wine in the ded.reckoning stable.

Red Table Wine 2010

125 Cases Produced

Release Date: May 22, 2012

Release Price: 9.99

SOLD OUT

Oink! Is back and even better than before! 20% of the juice spent some time in barrel this one, with just layers and layers of deep berry fruit, a kiss of chocolate and a rich, plummy character. Mostly Cab Franc and Malbec, it is designed for BBQ (duh!), burgers, grilled steaks, peanut butter sandwiches, Doritos, pork rinds and just about any other picnic, pig roast or luau you could plan. As there is very limited oak, it will also take a light chill and make a wicked sangria or wine cooler. This was a huge hit last summer and the quality of the juice in this one really steps it up a notch. You will be floored by what is in this bottle and for &*^% and giggles, throw it in blind into a Washington Cabernet tasting. Really fun stuff here!

2007 Amarone Classico Giuseppe Campagnola

60 Cases Produced

Release Date: April 10, 2012

Release Price: 49.99

SOLD OUT

We have been working in the last year with the old winery of Giuseppe Campagnola in the Amarone DOC of Verona in Italy to produce the first ‘ded. reckoning’ from overseas. Amarone is one of the most sought after and revered of all red wines in Italy and this one is no exception. Corvina and Rondinella grapes from the hilly vineyards of Marano were laid on straw mats to partially dry until the January after harvest before pressing. This wine is from the much heralded 2007 vintage and has deep, almost black color, with plum, candied cherries, dark chocolate and rich dried figs. These wines are known to age for decades and this one expected to do the same.

Yakima Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2011

100 Cases Produced

Release Date: May 22, 2012

Release Price: 9.99

SOLD OUT

Get your mind out of the gutter and into the boat here! 100% Sheridan Vineyard fruit that spent a tiny amount of time in barrel. Bright and crisp, with lemon, tangerine and green apple notes with zinging acidity that is not unlike a lime Popsicle. Fabulously refreshing and easy to drink, this is destined to be your new, Washington go to white for every day, but it really shines with halibut, ling cod, sole and spot prawns.

Yakima Valley Rose 2011

50 Cases Produced

Release Date: May 22, 2012

Release Price: 9.99

SOLD OUT

Also 100% Sheridan Vineyard fruit, this one is primarily Cabernet Franc juice that was bled off the tanks prior to fermentation. This is a classic technique used in the Loire valley in France to make the stunning rose from that famed region. Essence of watermelon, strawberry, green plums and fresh flowers. Just a smidge of sweetness that is oh, so refreshing on a hot day. Rose is making a huge comeback and wines like this are reason why. Salmon, cioppino, Dungeness crab and the mighty King crab all are perfect matches.

2009 Columbia Valley Connor Lee Vineyard Malbec

120 Cases Produced

Release Date: December 3, 2011

Release Price: 29.99

SOLD OUT

Produced by Sean Boyd at Woodinville Wine Cellars. 100% Connor Lee Vineyard Malbec,and extremely limited production. From arguably the finest vintage in the history of the state, with near perfect growing conditions, this wine is inky black with baking spice, dark chocolate, toffee and espresso notes. Moderate tannins and acids with an elegant mid palate. Approachable now, but has the structure to age for up to a decade or more.

2010 Yakima Valley Syrah

Release Date: December 1, 2011

SOLD OUT

100% 2010 Syrah from the Dineen and Sheridan Vineyards. Explosive pure fruit, with blackberry jam, raspberry scones, cherry pie and a smack of lanolin and smoke from spending a few months in used oak from Colgin in Napa. The name ‘plunder’ comes from the old tradition of looting another’s stash for one’s self. We sort of feel that way about this wine. Take as espressive a Yakima Valley Syrah as is possible, arguably the top winemaker and viticulturist in the Yakima area in Scott Greer and put it on the floor for less than a 10 spot.

2009 Yakima Valley Cabernet Franc

Release Date: July 16, 2011

SOLD OUT

Sourced from Dineen Vineyard and made by Sheridan’s Scott Greer, this dense and dark Cabernet Franc has all the herby and floral notes of a French version with the massive fruit and structure that only Washington can provide. Aged for several months in French Oak barrels, it provides layers of Skagit Valley Strawberry, wild vining blackberry, lavender, candied violets and the perfume of lilacs to the nose, and a rich mouth of currants, more berries and Bing cherry. Soft tannins and crisp acid make this a fantastic drinker now and give it the structure for several years more in the cellar.

2010 Yakima Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

120 Cases Produced

Release Date: October 10, 2012

Release Price: 14.99

SOLD OUT

Produced by Scott Greer at Sheridan Vineyard. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Sheridan and Dineen Vineyards.

American Red Table Wine

100 Cases Produced

Release Date: July 1, 2011

Release Price: 9.99

SOLD OUT

This fun and no BS wine designed specifically for that all American pastime, barbeque! When beer just won’t do and the lemonade just isn’t cutting the mustard, you really need a bottle of this fun and fruity red. Not too big and not too dry, you can even throw this in the cooler a bit on a hot day. The dash of fresh fruit from this blend of Malbec, Syrah and Cabernet and NO oak make this the perfect wine for cutting though spicy sauces, rascally rubs and all the relish, catsup and ranch style beans you can muster. Also makes a mean pitcher of sangria, so at this price, it becomes your all versatile red, chilled red and spritzer.

Columbia Valley 15 Year Tawny Dessert Wine

Release Date: December 10, 2010

SOLD OUT

The first dessert wine we have ever done in the ded.reckoning line. It is fabulously rare and will in all likelihood never be seen again in this form. Back in the 1980’s in Pasco Washington, various grapes were planted at the Preston facility for trials and as experiments.

2009 Yakima Valley Syrah

Release Date: November 20, 2010

SOLD OUT

100% 2009 Syrah from the Dineen Vineyard (which surrounds the Sheridan winery building), pure fruit. Blackberry jam, raspberry scones, cherry pie and all that old time perfumy goodness of granny’s kitchen while she is making jelly.

Salish Sea White Table Wine

Release Date: July 2014

SOLD OUT

100% organically farmed on Lopez Island by Lopez Island Vineyards, this blend of Madeline Angevine and Siegerebbe is the ideal wine for Dungeness crab. More akin to a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc than anything else, it is almost as if it was conceived to go with shellfish. The bright grapefruit and rhubarb and dried rose petal notes of the Mad Angie, paired with the candied apricot of the Siegerebbe makes for a perfect wine on the deck or dock with a pile of crab and a sheet of butcher paper.
