New Year 2015 formed from sparking digits over black background

One to Remember

2015 was an amazing year for us at Kitzke Cellars! From celebrating our 10th year as a winery to winning various top awards around the Northwest. Being recognized for producing some of Washington States best wine is an amazing feeling, but better than that is your support! We want to thank you for another great year and share some of our highlights with you.

 2012 Janaina Sensacao Red
If you have stopped in the tasting room there is a good chance you have heard the story behind our Janaina Sensacao Red. Named after our adopted daughter from Brazil this wine (49% Cab, 29% Sangio, 14% Nebbiolo, 8% Petit Verdot) is a smooth drinker that works with the local Royal Family Kids Organization here is Washington. This year through your purchases and our annual Purse Action we raised just under $14,000 to help foster children in our area. Thanks for your help and lets continue to help kids that are less fortunate around us.

AWARDS

WINE PRESS NORTHWEST “Best of the Best”

2012 NEBBIOLO -PLATINUM-

Seattle Wine Awards is the most notable wine competition in the Pacific North West. Bring in Masters of Wine, Sommeliers, Professors of Viticulture & Enology, Wine Directors, Wine Journalists and more. This adds up to 20 wine experts that will evaluate each and every wine on a blind basis.

We couldn’t have asked for better results this year at the 2015 SWA, receiving 6 AWARDS GOLD OR BETTER!

Double Golds include our 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2010 Syrah, and 2012 Malbec. Gold metals include out 2011 Cabernet Franc, 2010 Monte Caramelle, and 2012 Nebbiolo.

2010 Cabernet Sauvignon (DOUBLE GOLD) – This is the third straight year in a row our estate Cabernet has won a Double Gold at SWA. Our estate block was planted in 2000 on Candy Mountain and just continues to preform beyond its years. Since its 7th leaf it has produced top tier quality and we are excited to see the maturity level continue to improve.

2010 Syrah (DOUBLE GOLD) – Syrah is arguably Washington States best varietal. Producing deep rich flavor profiles that greatly differ from each micro-climate with in our state and the ability to age for years. The quality of Syrah here is so high that this award really has us ecstatic!

2012 Malbec (DOUBLE GOLD) – Our Malbec has always been a limited release that shines in competition. From sourcing grapes in 2008 to now using our estate block out near Red Mountain this Malbec show cases the 2012 vintage perfectly. Great fruit reflecting the warm year, with solid acid and tannin structure that is true to the varietal. Mild tannins that are drinking good now but will only improve with age. We are only producing around 50 cases a year sold to our Candy Mountain Wine Club only! Cheers!

2012 Nebbiolo (GOLD) – This was a varietal we did back in 2005 and was too early for Washington’s market. Nebbiolo is a Italian varietal that we source from Red Mountain and age for 30 months in neutral oak. It is one of the few 100% Nebbiolo’s in the state and has become the tasting room favorite this spring. Lighter body on the palate with bright fruit/acid and strawberry rhubarb on the finish.

2010 Monte Caramelle (GOLD) – This Blend meaning “Candy Mountain” in French consists of 50% Sangiovese, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, & 17% Syrah. All grown right around that tasting room on Candy Mountain in Richland, Wa. The 2010 vintage has big shoes to fill, with our 2009 blend winning a “Double Platinum” in the Northwest Wine Press platinum judging. It is well on it’s way though!

2011 Cabernet Franc (GOLD) – From our 2008 vintage our estate Cabernet Franc has been a crowd favorite metaling at SWA every year. Consisting of 100% Cab Franc this wine has a great balance of fruit, pepper and terroir. 2011 was a cold vintage in Washington and there is a very limited amount (less than 40 cases)! Don’t sleep on this release!
