In botany, a "radicle" is the earliest emerging root to develop from a seed, sending itself into the ground to create strength and take nourishment from the soil so that the plant will grow strong and spread its leaves. These wines are easy to enjoy, accessibly fruit forward, and suitable for both off the cuff quaffing, or as a simple adjunct to a meal. Sourced from three vineyard sites in the Columbia Valley, this Merlot based "Eastern Washington Bordeaux Blend" (Classic Bordeaux varietals with a touch of Syrah) is a nod to the superb drinkability of the 2016 vintage. Harvested throughout September and October from one of the warmest vintages on record, this wine is a balance of both early ripening varietals (Merlot and Syrah), and some of the latest (Cabernet Sauvignon). This combination creates a tranquility and harmony of aromatics and flavors that is not easily achieved in other common blends.
On rare occasions, a chosen vintage of a wine may sell out or be replaced by a new release after your order is placed. With bottles of wine listed under $15, we will not hold up an order and will simply automatically substitute the wine with the comparable vintage. Please be assured that we will only substitute with a vintage for the same type, varietal and winery.
During extreme weather during the Summer and Winter months we do recommend delaying shipments. We do not like to ship if the weather is above 85 degrees or below 32 degrees. To ensure the safety of your product we do recommend holding the shipment. We will hold in our temperature controlled facility until weather permits.
During Checkout you may Choose the Hold Until Safe and we will ship it once weather conditions are suitable
In this case, we will watch the weather closely and will remove the hold and ship your order as soon as conditions permit. The release dates will vary, and because there is no specified date for delivery, the warehouses will ship it as weather permits. If the Hold Until Safe option is released and your order is shipped, you will receive a shipping notice with the tracking number link.
