It’s been a long time coming (slightly more than a year, to be exact), but the release of the three most popular Long Shadows wines is upon us! Pirouette, Pedestal, and Feather are about to arrive!
Created by Augustin Huneeus and Philippe Melka, Pirouette is the quintessential Bordeaux blend. While the lead varietal is Cabernet Sauvignon, there are elements of Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc to complete the equation. The smallest production of the three wines, Pirouette will continue to evolve and grow in the cellar for 15 or more years.
Pedestal, the creation of legendary winemaker Michel Rolland, is a sterling example of the varietal that put Washington on the map, Merlot. Consistently the highest scoring of all Long Shadows wines, Pedestal has the gravitas to transform even the most dyed-in-wool Cabernet drinker over to the Right Bank.
Finally, the single most requested wine from the Long Shadows portfolio, Feather, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain icon Randy Dunn. An ethereal expression of Cabernet, it features intense dark fruit with silky tannins and a beautifully polished finish.
