Secret Squirrel comes from the highest quality fruit grown in our estate vineyards in the Red Mountain, Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley AVAs. It is fermented by native yeast with extended maturation in concrete and French oak.
Secret Squirrel is privately owned and personally made by people that truly love wine. One taste and you'll want to squirrel some away for yourself.
We pursue our favorite wine styles and these will vary from vintage to vintage based on what Mother Nature
provides us. Our current vintage offerings may include:
A spicy, complex nose loaded with wild aromas of lilac, black forest, dried herbs, tobacco and clove. Rich and supple in texture, the wine offers dark, juicy flavors of blackberry, spiced quince, licorice and tar, with savory elements of wet earth, smoked meats and raw hide. Soft, fleshy tannins combine with a crushed stone minerality to give the wine great energy and a long-lasting finish.
A wildly expansive nose shows off wonderful herbaceous notes, tea leaf, mint, eucalyptus, pomegranate, olive brine, rubbed sage, fennel, dried red currant, Christmas spice, vanilla bean and cocoa powder. On the palate, this wine is deeply complex, well-structured and delicious with flavors of dried plum, rustic red fruits, blackberry, dusty tannins, cedar and a lingering finish.
