Rock Meadow Cellars -- 2006 Early Release Wines

At long last, Rock Meadow Cellars is releasing our initial 2006 Early Release Columbia Valley wines to our inaugural customer base. After three years of dogged effort, beginning with the construction of our humble “winery in a barn,” our Columbia Valley Reds are ready for you to enjoy. Needless to say, we are proud of our wines, and think they are excellent examples of what Columbia Valley fruit delivers, and are an exceptional value.

Our production volumes are low, and that means limited availability as all of the dedication and all of the fun has left us with only 150 cases of wine available for sale. Orders will be filled on a first come-first served basis, so please get your order into us quickly, as outlined below, so you do not miss out!


Our fruit was sourced from the Sagemoor Vineyards Group, Pasco, WA. More specifically, from their Bacchus, Dionysus and Sagemoor vineyards. The Sagemoor Group of Vineyards are one of Washington State’s oldest, premium vinifera producers. Additionally, we sourced some Cabernet Sauvignon from the LeFore Vineyard in the Seven Hills area of the Walla Walla valley. The hot, dry summer ushered in a surprisingly long and temperate fall that allowed intense flavors to develop without a loss of balancing acid. Rock Meadow Cellars took full advantage of the extended growing season and chose to harvest the varietals late in their harvesting cycle. Aged in a balance of new (50%) and neutral (50%) oak barrels, the resulting wines are rich and flavorful, but balanced and focused with light to medium oak and in most cases, soft vanilla overtones.
