A new find from the owners of Banfi! That same pioneering spirit has found its way to the Pacific Northwest - specifically, the Red Mountain AVA of Washington state. Red Mountain’s southwest-facing slopes encourage the grapes to ripen and develop their deep, dark skin color. It is during the fermentation process that these thick, sun-ripened skins reveal the distinctly lush textures and flavors locked inside. A Bordeaux style blend of bold character, Thick Skinned represents everything that Red Mountain has to offer.

Separate handpicked lots from Kiona’s “Heart of the Hill” vineyard are fermented in 3-5 ton fermenters. Each varietal is barrel-aged in 50% new French oak for 6 months prior to blending. The wine is then returned to barrel for an additional 12 months of barrel aging. After bottling, the wine is given a minimum of 12 months bottle age before release.
