Since 1998, owner & winemaker Ben Smith and his wife Gaye McNutt have been producing high quality boutique wines from their small winery in the suburban Seattle neighborhood of South Park, a short 10-minute drive from Esquin. Just 2,000 cases are produced annually.
Cadence makes wine that speaks of place; of elegance and power, perfume and structure in combinations only possible from three world class vineyards on Red Mountain: Ciel du Cheval, Taptiel and its own estate Cara Mia Vineyard. They have chosen to represent these sites through the classic Bordeaux varietals given their perfect expression in Red Mountain terroir.
Ben and Gaye have consistently garnered exceptional critical praise for their wines. Stephen Tanzer named Ben one of the Superstars of the State, Jancis Robinson said Cadence is a winery to watch, and Wine & Spirits magazine has twice named Cadence Artisan Winery of the Year. Paul Gregutt chose Cadence as one of the top ten wineries in the Pacific Northwest in Tom Stevenson’s Wine Report 2008. More recently, Owen Bargreen placed 2017 Tapteil #22 on his list of Top 100 Wines of 2020, and Sean Sullivan included 2017 Ciel du Cheval as one of the 40 Most Exciting Washington Wines of 2020, saying, “No one does it like Ben Smith at Cadence in terms of purity, flavor and structure.”
