Illusion Winery

Illusion Winery Currently, Illusion makes its home in Black Diamond, Washington, about 35 miles southeast of Seattle on the way to Mount Rainier. The small production facility is not open to the public. With the January 2005 release of 2002 Apparition, a Bordeaux-style red table wine, the winery quickly established itself as one of Washington State's most exciting new boutique wineries.

  Apparition, red table wine
ILLUSION'S flagship wine, the 2004 Apparition, is a strong follow-up to the hugely successful 2002 and 2003 versions which marked the winery's debut. A blend of 72 percent cabernet sauvignon, 19 percent merlot and 12 percent cabernet franc from Washington State's Columbia Valley. The grapes were sourced from three exceptional vineyards: Harold Pleasant's vineyard near Benton City; Dave Groth's Aldercreek Vineyard near Alderdale and Sagemoor Farms' Bacchus Vineyard near the Tri Cities. They yielded a wine with exceptional fruit flavors, soft tannins and perfect acidity.
  Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley
A classic Cab from one of the oldest and most esteemed vineyards in Washington. Exceptional now but will develop into something truly special with 2-3 years of aging.
  Chardonnay, Yakima Valley
Harold Pleasant's vineyard near Benton City supplied the grapes for this old-world style Chardonnay. It shows flavors and character not often found in many of today's Chardonnays. Complex and full of surprises.
  Pinot Gris, Yakima Valley
Another gem from Pleasant Vineyards. Loads of fruit give this wine a brief hint of sweetness that soon vanishes. Great summer wine.
