As best friends go, a good dog is tough to beat — like Blue, mascot of Roaming Dog Wines and official squirrel chaser of our vineyard. Seems like just the other day that a couple of our field hands spied this scruffy old hound traipsing among the vines, with his tail on high-wag and an expression that said, “I’m home.”
So, when we needed a name for our wine, Roaming Dog just seemed to fit. Crafted exclusively with grapes from Washington's panoramic Columbia Valley AVA, they’re easy going with just the right notes of fruit and oak and of course, as good of a companion as Blue.
Grapes were delicatley hand picked, destemmed and fermented
on the skins for ten days before being aged for 18 months in New
Red Cherry, dried tarragon and hints of baking spice on the nose.
Round and inviting mouthfeel with a pleasing entry, round and
generous mid palate and a clean, fruit driven finish.
Pairs well with beef tenderloin, lamb ribs, or briased shortrib. For
a post-dinner treat, enjoy alongside semi sweet and dark chocolate
