Eagle Harbor “Raptor”

I love this guy’s wines. Hugh Remash from Eagle Harbor winery is an exquisite piece of art, reflected in his amazing wines. I randomly walked into his tiny tasting room on Bainbridge Island, Washington and was blown away. When Hugh told me about his methodolody, experimenting with New and Old World grapes, unfined wines to preserve flavor and character, and even that he plays classical music for his wines while they age in cask…I fell in love. The Raptor is a Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Walla Walla vineyards. Every few years I pop open one of my bottles in inventory to relive discovering this hidden gem. I will spare you the tasting profile–suffice to say that if you can find any of this man’s wines, buy them and savour them.
