Candy Mountain - Yakima Valley AVA - Richland, Washington
It's all in the name right? We haul in Merlot and Sangiovese from this vineyard right outside of Richland. This is one of the warmer sites in Washington State sitting just five miles from Red Mountain. The soil types are very similar with the heat units to match. Harvest begins and ends with this vineyard with Merlot at the front and Sangiovese at the end. The 20 year old Sangiovese vines in this vineyard are the backbone of PV. We release a yearly 100% Sangiovese varietal wine, Rose, and the occasional Sangiovese based blend. The Blood of Jove!
