It's All About The Grapes

Liberty Lake Wine Cellars is proud to produce wines from the Red Mountain AVA. The smallest (4,040 acres) and warmest wine growing region in Washington, Red Mountain AVA wines are known for their bold, balanced, and intense berry flavors. All current releases are from the KBJ Vineyards in the heart of Red Mountain.

2012 Legacy Red Blend - Silver Medal Winner, Finger Lakes International Wine Competition

This unique blend of 30% Petit Verdot, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Tempranillo, 17% Syrah, and 12% Merlot is complex with balanced tannis from being aged in 50% new Amerian oak for 40 months. With a nose of ripened mixed berries and the color of Japanese plums this wine brings forth the essence of Red Mountain. The result is a wine with dark intensity and a backbone which will allow it to be cellared for a decade or more.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic representation of the Red Mountain AVA, with strong cherry notes on the nose along with scents of currant and vanilla.  With tastes of cherry and dark fruit at the forefront, 30 months of aging in a blend of new and neutral American oak barrels brings excellent structure to this wine. A powerhouse that has cellaring potential, this Cabernet Sauvignon will pair with the most savory of dishes including those with garlic and rosemary. Bottled in April of 2016, this wine saw an additional 7 months of bottle aging before its release in November 2016. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is an unfiltered wine. 

2013 Petite Sirah

The inaugural release of Petite Sirah at Liberty Lake Wine Cellars was grown in the Heart of the Hill Vineyard, an acclaimed Kiona Estates property in Red Mountain. Petite Sirah is the offspring of the varietals Syrah and Peloursin, the latter rarely found and only in the French Alps. It’s famed characteristics are on full display here with an impressive deep color, notes of blueberry, dark chocolate, and black pepper.

2013 Tempranillo - Silver Medal Winner, Finger Lakes International Wine Competition

The Liberty Lake Wine Cellars 2013 Tempranillo is a single-vineyard wine from the acclaimed Red Mountain AVA in Washington State. This warm AVA can produce some powerful fruit and this expression of Tempranillo is no exception, with plentiful scents of cherry and dried fig that carry seamlessly throughout the palate.  Extended aging of 30 months in American oak lend caramel flavors to the mix, and the terrior of Red Mountain shines through with a slight minerality on the finish. 60 cases produced.

2014 Tahija Merlot - Released April 2018

The first Merlot bottled under the Tahija label is a blend of 85% Merlot from the Stillwater Creek and Sagemoor vineyards with 15% Petit Verdot from Seven Hills vineyard. This Merlot is very approachable with a hint of violet on the nose. The wine extends to the palate with cedar, fennel, and sage finishing with bakers chocolate. This wine is easily drinkable either with or without food.

2015 Tahija Chardonnay - Low Inventory

Liberty Lake Wine Cellars first Chardonnay is lightly oaked from the Columbia Valley. Due to the very hot 2015 vintage, this wine boasts pleasing tropical fruit flavors such as passionfruit and pineapple with a hint of honeysuckle. Some drinkers sense a slight bit of cotton candy on the nose, while the light oak creates a smooth and restrained mouth feel.

2016 Tahija Dry Riesling

The Tahija 2016 Dry Riesling was sourced from the historic Red Willow vineyard in the Yakima Valley. One of the oldest vineyards in the state, its fruit exhibits classic Riesling notes of pear and granny smith apple on the nose. A wine with crisp enough acid to cut through pairings with Asian, BBQ, or spicy dishes, it tastes of apple and Meyer lemon and finishes clean. 

2017 Tahija Sangiovese Rose' - Released May 2018

Our latest iteration of rosé hails from the Candy Mountain vineyard approximately 5 miles from our primary Red Mountain vineyards. This beautiful blush colored wine smells of nectarines, white peach, and hibiscus flowers. The hibiscus notes flow to the palate with rose pedals, jasmine green tea, and ruby red grapefruit. We love it so much we have already locked in the same rows of grapes for next year! The perfect summer wine.
