Review:

With the maturation of the Northwest wine industry comes the increased challenge of finding "new discoveries" for the Club of the same name. Considering this is the red wine steal of 2013, and it came out of nowhere, its inclusion seems entirely fitting. Sandhill is not a new winery - it's a non-winery, or ex-winery. Sandhill was purchased in 2008 by Corliss Estates, one of our favorite newcomers on the Washington scene. Corliss is rebranding Sandhill - word is it will be RMV (Red Mountain Vineyards). Whatever the name, it's clear the vineyard can produce fantastic juice. my guess is that the price will go up, so we can enjoy this deal while it lasts.

I've been raiding my cellar, drinking up older Washington wines from the likes of Andrew Will, Owen Roe, DeLille, and others. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that the Sandhill Red would hold its own in a line-up of these "big boys." Deep berry, black cherry, a smidge of cassis, baking spice, tobacco, and a delicious caramel note that develops with age in many of my favorite Washington reds. I was told "all Bordeaux varietals" from a trusted source, then read another note about there being a little Syrah in it. I was working to learn the exact blend but once I opened up the sample and tasted it, I stopped caring. - Marcus

Premium Red Mountain fruit at a steal of a price. Sandhill Winery was founded in 1998 and made some great wine with fruit from their 20 year-old vineyard. In 2008, Corliss Estates purchased the winery; it is being renamed RMV (Red Mountain Vineyards).
