For 44 we welcome Lawrelin Wine Cellars, which started as a desire to explore some different vineyards in the Columbia Valley that the vintner didn’t have access to with his day job. Initially focusing exclusively on Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from the Red Mountain AVA, and the Wahluke Slope AVA with the earliest vintages, over the next few vintages, additional varieties were added to the blends, Malbec in the Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache in the Syrah. Subsequent vintages, many of which are yet to release, also include fruit sourced from the Horse Heaven Hills, Yakima Valley and the Royal Slope AVA’s.
In more recent vintages, Lawrelin has been working with several elite vineyards from around the Columbia Valley.
Production has been kept very small, typically only about 250 – 350 cases per vintage. That allows the wines to be extremely focused, with attention given to every detail of the process. Typically wineries are not able to hold their wines for extended periods of aging before release. By keeping production levels extremely small, Lawrelin has been able to provide upwards of 10 years of bottle aging for their wines. This allows the wines to reach a balance and finesse typically not seen in younger wines. Lawrelin believes wines become more interesting and appealing with a longer bottle aging.
