Nine Hats tasting room now open in SoDo!
Thursdays – Sundays, 12pm – 6pm
Launched in 2007, Nine Hats was inspired by Long Shadows’ team of nine internationally renowned vintners. A decade later, the portfolio now stands on its own, with a tip of the hat to those who first envisioned it.
In the beginning, there was one Nine Hats wine, a red blend created from Long Shadows’ declassified barrels to support the winemakers’ ongoing, strict selection process for their signature wines. The overwhelming success of the Red Wine lead to the expansion of the brand and Nine Hats has come out of the “shadows” to assemble a portfolio of nine uniquely sophisticated wines.
Today, Long Shadows’ director of winemaking and viticulture, Gilles Nicault, oversees a team of winemakers dedicated to producing Nine Hats. The wines are styled for quality and everyday enjoyment.
A multi-layered blend with complex flavors and vibrant aromas of black cherries, red currants and sweet oak spices. This wine offers a wonderfully rich and refined texture from its core of Syrah. Cabernet Sauvignon from the Benches Vineyard at Wallula in the Horse Heaven Hills provides a sturdy backbone and long, pure finish.
Brilliant color and a delicate bouquet of blueberries and nutmeg spice lead to a vibrant mouthfeel that evolves beautifully with flavors of Bing cherries, mocha, cassis and earthy notes. The wine’s backbone marries well with it’s richness and depth to provide balance reminiscent of a right bank Bordeaux. Half of the Merlot component is from the Horse Heaven Hills AVA, providing this wine with its silky tannins, and from the Walla Walla AVA for its richness. The Cabernet Franc from the Weinbau Vineyard provides elegance and balance.
