Description

Matthews is a family owned and operated winery based in Woodinville, Washington. They take their inspiration from the great wine blending techniques of Bordeaux and from the exceptional fruit that Washington state is producing. Their wines tip their hat to old world traditions, while embracing the energy and innovation of this ascendant wine region. Since 1992, Matthews has crafted red blends from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, and white wines exclusively from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

Included in 2-Pack

2020 Sauvignon Blanc
The 2020 Matthews Sauvignon Blanc was crafted using Sauvignon Blanc from select vineyards in Washington State, specifically the Horse Heaven Hills of the Columbia Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the fruit was machine-harvested in the early fall mornings of 2020. Upon arriving at the winery, the grapes were pressed and the juice was delivered into tank. It was then fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel tanks before being bottled and released.

Notes of fresh citrus, tropical fruits, and honeydew melon. Swirling brings up white tea, sweet green apple, and pineapple rind. The palate has vibrant acidity, good volume, and glossy polish. Flavors of pithy stone fruit and citrus linger on the finish.”
-Bryan Otis, Proprietor

2019 Blackboard Red Blend
The 2019 Matthews Cabernet Sauvignon comes from several small vineyard parcels within four AVAs: Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, Royal Slope, and Walla Walla Valley. Harvested by hand in the early fall mornings of 2019, it was hand-sorted and fermented in the winery using both concrete and stainless-steel tanks. The free-run wine was cellared in French oak for 21 months. Evaluated over 40 times by our winemaking team, 111 barrels were ultimately selected and bottled in August 2021.

“Beautiful notes of currants, spice, raspberry jam, strawberry, and pureed plum. Hints of vanilla bean, cocoa powder, and berries carry the palate. A darker fruit wine with soft tannins and surprising complexity. A great window into a warm vintage here in Washington State.”
– Soren Dietz, Winemaker
