2019 L’Oeuvre – a work of art

The L’Oeuvre (pronounced Love) is a traditional Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. The 2019 L’Oeuvre is a barrel-select wine, blended to represent our premium fruit from the Columbia Valley. The L’Oeuvre is a perfect example of a Meritage wine. Nasturtium, clove and vanilla aromas, followed by blueberry, rhubarb, strawberry jam, cinnamon, basil, baker’s chocolate.  Coconut woodiness on the nose.

 

Deadhead Red 2019 Petít Verdot

Jim Bopp, Pend d’Oreille Winery’s Head Winemaker introduced his own private label in 2010, Cottage Island Wines. Deadhead Red is made from the Petit Verdot grape, grown at the Coyote Canyon Vineyard in Klickitat County, Washington.

Jim began making this wine as a tribute to his Grandfather, who began his business career with a $500 loan from a local Sandpoint banker and an idea to salvage “sinker” logs from the bottom of Lake Pend Oreille. Thus was born Deadhead Logging Co. which would later become Sand Creek Lumber Co. and Pack River Lumber Co.

Deep garnet in color, violet and lavender aromas, blueberry, dark plum, tobacco, sage, espresso, sandalwood flavors knit together this full bodied wine.
