Introducing Our Big Believer Cab & Red Blend

Posted on:
Two new wines have been added to the Portlandia family!

Introducing our … Big Believer Cabernet Sauvignon & Red Blend!

Big Believer Cabernet Sauvignon

Sourced from world class vineyards in the Wahluke Slope region of Columbia Valley, this is a bold Cabernet that believers, skeptics and Sasquatch himself will love! Aromas of blackberry, vanilla and coffee are followed by layered flavors of black cherry, dark plum and sweet spices. Structured by fine, firm tannins and well integrated acidity, we love to pair this food friendly wine with grilled beef or portabella mushroom dishes.

Red Blend

Made of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Syrah, this is a juicy red blend from the Columbia Valley’s Horse Heaven Hills and Wahluke Slope regions. Aromas of raspberry, black currant and mocha lead into flavors of black cherry, huckleberry and dark chocolate. Rich and fruit forward, this red blend pairs perfectly with BBQ ribs or grilled peach salad.

Pinot Gift Pack

Pinot Noir & Kale and Mushroom Lasagna

A green version of the Italian classic that is perfect for warm summer nights. The earthiness of the mushrooms provides an ideal compliment to subtle smokiness of our Pinot Noir.


Pinot Gris & Carta di Musica

A delicious vegetarian take on Sardinian flatbread. The roasted eggplant spread pairs seamlessly with the crisp acidity of our Pinot Gris.
