Our awards:

Recent review:2011 Desert Wind Ruah – 92 points / Publisher\'s Pick - The Tasting Panel, March 2014"The Hebrew word ruah means "breath" or "spirit" and surely Doug Fries and his son Greg give life to this wine off the 500 acres of dry desert vineyards they farm on Washington State\'s Wahluke Slope/ This Bordeaux blend of 45% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Cab Franc shows off its dry, dusty coffee bean tannins, smoky cedar and ripe black fruit--but through all this, the juiciness eeks out, enlightening the mid-palate. There\'s a textural leanness to this structured body--powdered with cocoa and tight with stone fruit pits to prove a real age-worthiness."
