Pixie 2012

94 Points: Wine Enthusiast

“A blend of Klipsun and Ciel du Cheval vineyards aged in 50% new French oak, this wine brings brooding notes of blackberry bramble, blueberry, mineral, herbs and potpourri. The palate-coating blue-fruit flavors are exceptionally dense, rich and sweet and lead to a hyper-extended finish.”

“Plush and expressive, delivering a powerful blast of cherry and ripe raspberry notes against powdery tannins, finishing with a hint of cinnamon as the flavors well up. Best from 2017 through 2022. 396 cases made.”

“The 2012 Syrah The Pixie is another terrific wine from this estate. Smoked meats, cracked pepper, ground herbs, chocolate and assorted black fruits all flow nicely to a full-bodied, blockbuster palate. While this lacks some elegance, it makes up for it in sheer texture and richness, while never coming across as heavy. Enjoy this bombastic beauty over the coming 4-5 years.”
– Jeb Dunnuck

The Sleeping Giant 2012

94 Points: Wine Advocate

“[The Sleeping Giant] possesses classic Boushey Vineyard sappy flowers, violets and crushed rock notes to go with decadent black and blue fruits. Tasting like a classic Boushey Syrah on steroids, this full-bodied, fresh, layered and pure Syrah will benefit from a year or two in the cellar.”

The F.O.G. 2012

Malbec Reserve

93 Points: Wine Spectator

“Light purple in color, this aromatically appealing, fruit-forward wine has notes of dark plum, dried herbs and peppery spices along with a mocha top note. It’s plump and velvety in feel, with concentrated yet lithe fruit flavors that linger effortlessly on the long, fruit-filled finish that kicks it up a notch.”

-Sean Sulivan



Wine Enthusiast Feature: Red Mountain Rising

Wine Enthusiast: March 2015

“Over the last four decades, Red Mountain has established itself as not only Washington’s premier winegrowing region, but one of the finest in the world. Once a well-kept secret, the recent boom in plantings and investments have served notice: Red Mountain has arrived.”

“‘Red Mountain wines can have intense amounts of fruit, but they also have this chalky, gravelly minerality,’ says Chris Gorman, winemaker for Gorman Winery.” 

The Pixie Syrah: “A blend of Klipsun and Ciel du Cheval vineyards, this wine brings brooding notes of bramble, blueberry, mineral, herbs and potpourri. The palate-coating flavors are dense and rich, leading to a long finish.”

Evil Twin 2010

Syrah-Cab Blend

94 Points: Wine Advocate
“…the 2010 The Evil Twin checks in as a blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, also all from Red Mountain. Aged in 100% new French oak, it boasts knockout aromatics of blackberry liqueur, cedar, toasted spice and licorice as well as a full-bodied, mouth-filling and decadently textured palate. Still possessing some tannin to integrate, it should evolve positively for 3-4 years and drink well for over a decade. Drink now-2018..”
