The Bos 2018

The Bos is named after Peter Bos, a 40 year Washington wine veteran, most recently as an instructor at the Northwest Wine Academy. A master at managing misfit barrels and cantankerous lots, Peter taught us, and a small army of winemakers, the fine art of using blending to make a wine greater than the sum of its parts. For The Bos, we take our misfit barrels and use them to make a wine emblematic of Washington, supremely drinkable and full of texture.

The 2018 version of the Bos could be the best vintage yet. Opaque, dark color hints at what’s in the glass: red and black cherries, blackberry bramble and dark chocolate intermix with baking spice and Eucalyptus. The palate is sexy, silky and full-bodied but also fresh and refined with plenty of dark fruit, mouthcoating, plush tannins and a lengthy finish that goes on and on. Yummy.
