Welcome to Pondera Winery
Pondera Winery is a family owned, boutique winery located in the Warehouse Winery District of Woodinville. Winemaker, Shane Howard, has been making wine since 2003 and the winery was officially launched with the Pondera brand in early 2005. The winery specializes in the production of high quality, well balanced red varietals and Bordeaux style blends. Our grapes are sourced from six outstanding vineyards covering three different AVA’s of Washington state. Each wine is very limited and our entire production is currently 2000 cases annually.
What do you get when you cross
Cabernet Franc with Sauvignon Blanc?
Cabernet Sauvignon of course!
We invite you to join us for our
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
release this Saturday & Sunday,
April 23rd & 24th
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - $36
(95% Cabernet Sauvignon / 5% Merlot)
2010 & 2011 Vintages were both awarded GOLD!
Our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon greets you with a huge crème de cassis nose, lingering vanilla undertones and fragrant scents of stone fruits. It's deep ruby red color and beautiful long legs prove it's a well-structured and balanced wine.
The first sip will glide across your palette easily, with blueberry and blackberry notes hitting your mid-palette, followed by hints of dark chocolate shavings and a long lingering finish.
It's full-bodied with firm velvety tannins and would be absolute perfection paired with a rib-eye steak smothered in Gorgonzola butter. We recommend spending some time with this one, letting it envelope you with warmth and contentment.
This wine is incredible right now and one can only imagine what it will be like in a few more years. Shane has hit it out of the park again! Drink now or hold for 2 to 10 years.
