2009 Cabernet Franc
$28 Available exclusively from our tasting room
2009 were perfect conditions at Colter’s Creek for this 100% Estate Cabernet Franc. We aged this delicate wine in French oak for 10 months. A nose of plum, raspberry, and a hint of clove are followed by cranberry and cherry flavors with a mineral finish. Pairs nicely with light pastas, seafood and white meats, or soft cheese such as brie.

2009 Estate Chardonnay, Juliaetta, Idaho
The grapes of this Chardonnay are from the Spencer block at Colter’s Creek, planted in 1986. The wine was minimally oaked to showcase the fruit, which is delightfully intense due to alkaline soil of the vineyard. It exudes a buttery nose and flavors of butterscotch and pear. Great chilled or at room temperature. Experiment and Enjoy!

2009 Rosè of Syrah, Umiker Vineyard, Lewiston, Idaho
This Syrah was harvested from the beautiful Umiker Vineyard in Lewiston, Idaho. The wine gained its color from minimal contact with the grape skins, and was fermented to dryness slowly for 21 days in the style common to the French Provence region. This is a crisp, tantalizing wine. Serve it chilled with a citrus salad on a hot summer day. Harvested September 25, 2009. Sugar at harvest: 21.9 brix
2009 Estate Late Harvest Riesling
