2018 Métis Red Blend

A complex red blend of the finest varietals from the Walla Walla Valley, this bottling celebrates the Métis heritage of Founder Jim Bernau's fourth great grandparents Catherine "Kitty" Umfreville Pambrun who worked with her husband Pierre Chrysologue Pambrun to lead Fort Nez Perce in Walla Walla, ushering in a time of peace to the trading post and Columbia Basin.

On the Nose:

Food Pairings:  Enjoy with grilled meats including prime rib with au jus, BBQ brisket, gourmet burgers topped with bleu cheese and onions, roast duck with pecan puree, wood-fired pizza with sausage and mushrooms and dark chocolate desserts.
