  Orca Series Cabernet Sauvignon
Concentrated flavors of black cherries and other dark black fruits predominate this complex, rich wine. The judicious use of oak and the addition of small amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Franc have created a wine that will stand up to the most robust foods while also standing up on its own.
  Orca Series Cabernet/Merlot
The grapes were crushed into small stainless fermenters and inoculated with Pasteur Red and Premier Cuvee Wine yeasts. The must was punched down twice a day until the wine reached dryness. Once dry, the wine was pressed off its skins and racked to barrel to complete its secondary ML fermentation. Once ML was complete, the Merlot and cabernet was aged in oak. The Cab/Merlot was blended, egg white fined, filtered and bottled.
  Orca Series Chardonnay
Lush tropical fruits and melons carry through this wine from start to finish. The emphasis here is on the ripe fruit with light touches of oak. Typical of Northwest Chardonnay this wine finishes with a bracing zip of acidity.
  Orca Series Merlot
Essences of cedar and tobacco drift up from the surface of this wine as you inhale the aromas from your glass.

The smooth, lingering finish leaves an impression that remains long after the wine is gone.
