Description 

Tenor 1:1
In 1:1, we blend to reflect a style similar to the wines found on the Left Bank of Bordeaux. This consists mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon and consistently delivers power, structure, finesse and longevity. The most recent release of this wine, it has great persistence and depth with freshness and a heady mixture of ripe red fruit and a savory herb distillate.>THE BLENDS: We compose two premier blended wines each year by using the best fruit from thebest vineyards and select only the very best barrels. Both wines are a reflection of Mother Nature's gift upon harvest and homage to the Bordeaux region of France. From each of our vineyard holdings,we have selected the five traditional red grape varietals to compose our two blended wines. Those areCabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.First, we blend to reflect a style similar to the wines found on the 'Left Bank' of Bordeaux. This consists mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon and consistently delivers power, structure, finesse and

longevity. We've named this wine 1:1 (one-of-one); which stems from 'new chapter, new

beginning'. Similar to its name, we look at each vintage as a new chapter in the history

of our winery and a new beginning for the 1:1. Second, we select the best Merlot of the

harvest to blend with the other varietals to reflect a style of wine found on the 'Right

Bank' of Bordeaux. We've named this wine 2:2 (two-of-two). Using Merlot as the

majority and foundation of the wine, we blend in Cabernet Franc as the next largest

percentage. This wine is intentionally softer, showing more red fruit with a richer

texture in its youth but will age gracefully as great Washington State Merlot has

proven. Each varietal is meant to support and add to the characteristics that the other

varieties may lack- hence producing the most complete wine possible.

Our focus at Tenor is to produce wines that deliver finesse, refinement, power and

grace. Please enjoy.
Tasting notes

'Sweetly ripe red fruit out in front of black currants, plum and raspberry ganache. A

complex mixture of ripe fruit and hints of Asian spice box, vanilla bean and a black

tea potpourri. Great persistence and depth with freshness and a heady mixture of ripe

red fruit and a savory herb distillate. Texture, polish and presence with fine tannins

and an understated structure to last for decades. Less brooding than previous vintages

with more show and polish..'
