What is Our Destiny?

As 2008 winds down, our destiny comes from Alexandria Nicole Cellars. That would be 2006 Destiny, a premium blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Merlot (14%), Cab Franc (11%), Petit Verdot (6%) and Malbec (3%).

Winemaker Jarrod Boyle produced only 225 bottles of this amazing blend of grapes from Destiny Ridge Vineyards in Horse Heaven Hills. And, in recognition of the skills needed to plant, harvest and sort the grapes, each bottle honors the vineyard crew with the signature of their foreman, Jose Luis Yanez.

This honor is made with the typical class we have come to know in both Jarrod and his wife Ali. In the last couple of years, we’ve been fortunate to get to know them, along with Vida and Kathy from the wine club and tasting rooms in Woodinville and Prosser.

So here’s to Destiny!

Cheers!
