Barrister’s Award-Winning Wines

Our wines are made from grapes sourced from some of Washington’s most prestigious vineyards.  The grapes are handpicked and sorted, fermented in small lots and barrel-aged in French, American and Hungarian Oak for 16 to 36 months.  All production is handled on site at the Winery.  Winemakers, Greg, Michael and Tyler, are involved, hands-on, throughout the process.

Barrister Winery, whose signature style is characterized by a lush, fruit forward flavor, silky mouthfeel and soft tannins, now draws world-wide attention from wine magazines and wine enthusiasts alike.


2021 Sauvignon Blanc, Yakima Valley |  23

We are very excited to be sourcing our newest Sauvignon Blanc from the Yakima Valley. It is crisp and clean in aspect, aroma and flavor. Citrus jumps on the nose, commingled with pleasing floral and sweet cake notes. Fruity to taste with peach, apple and lemon citrus lending a mild tartness to this weighty and smooth Sauvignon Blanc. The finish is reminiscent of lightly brûléed lemon cream pie with toasted graham cracker crust. Tart, slightly sweet, and refreshing, we think you’ll enjoy our 2021 Sauvignon Blanc.

Rough Justice XVI, Red Blend | 27

Look for aromas of orange peel and cloves, bright red fruits – strawberries, cherries – and a touch of floral component. Lush and soft on the palate with well-balanced acid, tannins and fruit make for a distinctly approachable and extremely pleasing wine. The finish is full of dark berries, chocolate, smooth tannins and a touch of oak. A wine to enjoy now or several years down the line!

2018 Tempranillo, Walla Walla Valley | 53

Our first – and perhaps only – Tempranillo! It hails from the Summit View Vineyard, and akin to the Malbec that we also source from Summit View, this wine is intense and chewy. Marvelous notes of vanilla, blueberry, fruit leather, black pepper and black cherries tease the nose with tons of texture and structure on the palate. Dark red fruits, dark chocolate, and cherry liqueur pop from the start to finish with that dark, concentrated fruit really lingering on the back end amidst pleasant oak tannins. One to drink now or hold onto.

2019 Cabernet Franc, Columbia Valley | 35

93 Points, Double Gold, 2022 American Fine Wine Competition
This award-winning Cabernet Franc is fruit forward brimming with hints of dark cherries, warm spice and subtle notes of toasted oak. With a velvety texture and soft tannins, our Cabernet Franc has been described as “berries wrapped in a blanket of toasted oak.” The flavors of black cherry, blueberry and hints of cocoa are smooth on the palate with a soft, lingering finish. Enjoy now and for years to come. 

2019 CarmÉNÈRE, Wahluke slope | 43

This Carménère from the Weinbau Vineyard has been one of Barrister’s most popular wines. This wine, deep purple in color, has rich and complex aromas that tease the nose with notes of blackberry reduction, plummy dark fruits and dried herbs. The wine tastes of dark fruits with plum and black cherry with smooth tannins. Warm spice and a touch of jalepeño come through on the end. Enjoy now and for years to come.

2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Seven Hills Vineyard | 41

Gold Medal 2022 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition 90 pts.
Gold Medal 2022 American Fine Wine Competition
This Cabernet is full-bodied, complex and fruit-forward with a rich nose of black cherry, baking spices, and a hint of vanilla. This is an extremely juicy wine with flavors of black cherry, ripe plums and dark berries. With a soft mouthfeel and velvety texture, the wine’s finish lingers with intriguing notes of smoky dark fruits. A marvelous example of Cabernet Sauvignon.
