93% Syrah | 7% Mourvèdre
Force Majeure Estate Vineyards

“A blend of 93% Syrah and 7% Mourvèdre from both the Rocks region of Walla Walla and the estate on Red Mountain, the 2018 Parabellum Coulée offers a rounded, textured, sexy style that carries plenty of cassis and blueberry fruits as well as notes of violets and spring flowers, a kiss of Red Mountain minerality, and a great finish. There are only 400 cases made, but it’s going to be a stunning value.”

60% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot

Force Majeure Estate Vineyard, Red Mountain AVA

“The 2017 ‘Alluvio’ is an alluring blend of 60% Cabernet Franc with 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Petit Verdot. Toasty oak wraps around dark fruits, graphite and sagebrush tones on this expressive nose. The palate is plush, round and inviting, delivering copious dark fruit flavors that collide wit the milk chocolate, sagebrush, cherry tomato and dusty minerals. This is exceedingly good, highly viscous and gratifying wine now as the ‘Alluvio’ will provide drinking enjoyment for a decade or more.”
