Sourced from one of our very own seriously Old School vineyard planted in 1959 in AOC Minervois, this Rose de Presse (meaning made the proper way). It is certified Ecocert Organic NOP, certified Demeter and certified Biodyvin for good measure. It’s salmon in color but dry, crisp and refreshing. Only 488 cases were made.
nextSectionThe 2014 old school rose, which is made from cinsault and Grenache, offers classic Provencal notes of strawberry, herbes de Provence and spice in its medium-bodied, refreshing and crisp personality. Drink it over the coming year.
Planted in 1998 by the Jerry Milbrandt, the vineyard rows lie along a stretch of steep cliffs above the Columbia River, in an area that currently falls within the broad Columbia Valley AVA, and soon to be one of the state's newest AVA's The Ancient Lakes. A cooler site due to river influence, the soils are composed of fragmented basalt, gravel, silt, and caliche deposited during ice age floods. This site produces fruit with sublime mineral character and the acid balance that winemakers dream of. A very long, cold fermentation helped to bring out the maximum in true varietal character, similar to a classic "Mosel-style" Riesling. Both fermentation and aging occurred in 100% stainless steel.

The first truly new American Whiskey to be introduced in many generations. Whereas others contain primarily corn, barley, or rye, Bernheim is the only type of straight whiskey which uses soft winter wheat.
nextSection93 points and 'Top 50 Spirits 2011,' Wine Enthusiast: "45% abv. This small-batch whiskey, with its bright copper penny color and bewitchingly sweet aromas of cocoa, mocha and fresh-baked cookies, is one of the few 'straight wheat' whiskeys out there. The flavors are brisk and restrained, with leather and tobacco tones and a clean citrus and vanilla finish. Despite a relatively high proof, it still comes across as mellow and balanced. Drink straight up, with ice. (Mar 2011)"
Wine Searcher: "(style: smooth) A sweet and easy nose floats brittle sweet mint candy to you. The mint smoothes the burn as the candy dissolves, and you may catch a hint of corn as the long glide of the finish starts. The wheat preponderance makes this one quite gentle and approachable. 90 proof. (1/31/12)"
