Involuntary Commitment is a new project in Washington State that is “committed” to producing premium wine from top Vineyards from the Columbia Valley. The idea behind this new project was the forecast of a larger than expected harvest. With a combination of great weather, vine maturity and timing we created a wine that shows all the nuances of premier Washington State grapes that will drink wonderfully right out of the bottle. The wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks with all native yeasts and are aged in 100% neutral French oak barrels.
In the inaugural vintage we get a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot showing balance, full flavor and an ability to be opened and enjoyed with your weekday dinner now or on that special occasion down the line.
We believe that with so much such great fruit coming out of our vineyards it would be shame not to spread the wealth. This medium body wine exhibits a dark garnet color with a bouquet of dark fruit, herbs, earth and hints of tobacco. On the palate, flavors of cherry, red currants and spices shine through. This wine is fresh, youthful and ready to drink, though will cellar nicely through the next 5 years.
