2011 Côte Bonneville DuBrul Vineyard In 1992 we planted DuBrul Vineyard in the Yakima Valley, Washington’s oldest appellation. Our experienced team and spectacular site consistently produce grapes with unique flavors and structure. Meticulously cared for, DuBrul Vineyard was named “Vineyard of the Year” by SEATTLE Magazine in 2007 and again in 2009. Côte Bonneville was founded in 2001 to create wines that best express our spectacular site each vintage year. By combining traditional winemaking techniques with cutting-edge science, we craft estate-grown grapes into world-class wines. Tasting Notes If you love Côte Bonneville, the 2011 is a must have vintage. From the onset it is alluring, seductive, and complex. Great structure of acid and tannin frame the DuBrul Cherry, exotic black spices, and dried herb notes. The cool vintage meant lots of hang time for exquisite flavor development. We just couldn't put the glass down! This wine shows great depth and amazing development as it opens. Quite possibly Kerry’s favorite bottling of Côte to date! Only 218 cases were produced in this low yielding year. Soils On a steep rocky south facing hillside overlooking the Yakima Valley, our Cabernet Sauvignon vines grow in shallow Scoon soils. These were formed in wind-driven loess and heterogeneous rock deposited by the ancient Columbia River, which covers the underlying basalt promontory. Available water capacity is low, producing small clusters and small berries of intense fruit. The planting is at 1300 feet elevation, on an 8-15% pitch. Just downslope from the Cabernet Sauvignon vines, at a gentler (5-8%) gradient, grow the Merlot vines. The soils are similar, shallow Scoon silt loam, underlain by basalt, with low available water capacity. These low yielding vines produce muscular Merlot.
