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.
2018 Sauvignon Blanc, Klipsun Vineyard | $21
Our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc has clean aromatics with distinctive notes of minerality, pear, lemon, honey and hyacinth. The first sip delivers with balanced acidity, a full palate weight, and crisp apple and honeydew melon. As it recedes, enjoy a lingering rich finish reminiscent of apricot and honey.
Rough Justice Xv, Red Blend | $23
Barrister’s fifteenth rendition of Rough Justice possesses an intense floral aroma with elements of sweet cherry, vanilla and pepper. As you take a sip, experience candied fruits on the front end, mellow oak and balanced acidity in the middle, and dark fruits with a long, complex finish on the back end.
2016 Merlot, Walla walla valley | $33
This wine is 95% Merlot from the Dwelley Vineyard blended with 5% Malbec from the Summit View Vineyard, both located in the Walla Walla Valley. The aroma opens with wave after wave of ripe red fruits and black cherry with undertones of cocoa powder and cola. Take a sip and enjoy a wonderfully complex, nuanced and vibrant flavor profile with hints of cherries, vanilla, and chocolate.
2018 Cabernet Franc, Columbia Valley | $33
The 2018 Cabernet Franc has a lovely, perfumed nose akin to walking through a field of wildflowers. Take in an even deeper inhale and discover hints of black cherry, toasty oak, orange peel, cloves and the sweetness of honey. Soft and enveloping up front, this wine open rich and fruity. Balanced, mid-palate structure lets this wine hang mid-sip, look for milk chocolate, and a pleasing astringincy. The finish is warm, soft and lingers while you contemplate your next sip.
2016 Sangiovese, kiona vineyard | $35
Bright and intense aromas of red cherry, stone fruits and a hint of vanilla spice leads this Sangiovese to layers of rich and juicy flavors of plums, vibrant red fruit and wild raspberry. Although Sangiovese is a medium-bodied grape, its Red Mountain roots give the wine great concentration and structure. The judicious use of used oak barrels coaxes richer flavors from the grapes and shows beautiful richness, intensity and complexity.
2017 Cabernet sauvignon, Pepper Bridge Vineyard | $39
The wine is smoky, dark and dense with aromas of black cherry, ripe berry and warm notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and espresso. On the palate, the wine is beautifully balanced and reminiscent of blueberries, plums and cherry preserves with a touch of toasted caramel. This is a lush, textured wine of depth and complexity with soft, well-integrated tannins and a long, layered finish.
2016 Cabernet sauvignon, Tapteil Vineyard | $53
This wine has an intense nose of dark fruit, black cherry, plum and Asian spice box. This Cabernet Sauvignon has the structure typical of Red Mountain’s finest wines with Barrister’s signature soft, gentle tannins and a rich, lingering finish.
