Empyrean's Current Wine Offerings
Eridanus Claret - 2006
A Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with fruit from the Waluke Slope AVA and the Yakima Valley AVA. Eridanus is balanced and approachable, with masses dark fruits, cigar box, black plum and dark chocolate notes on the palate. Fine, soft tannins providing structure throughout. Drink Now.
Lyra Pinot Noir
Now in its second vintage, this single-vineyard sourced Pinot Noir follows Empyrean's love of blending west, over the Cascades to Oregon. We believe Pinot Noir is the varietal that most expresses itself through clonal selection, and this one offers Pommard, 777, 115 and Mt Eden in our blend. Lush, soft red fruits on the palate, with a silky natural tannin structure running throughout, and a deep, lingering finish. Drink now, or cellar up to seven years.
Cygnus Syrah 2006
Another single-vineyard sourced wine only now reaching its peak. Sourced from great vineyard just north of Walla Walla, WA, Cygnus syrah offers dark fruits, with candied black cherries, and hints of blond tobacco. It offers fine, firm tannins, and exceptional balance. Drink now.
Our Latest Project - "Lyra"
While producing an amazing run of demonstrably age-worthy Bordeaux-style blends in Washington's Yakima Valley, Empyrean wines has headed west, over the Cascades, to Oregon's premiere Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Its new project, Lyra pinot noir is a rare find at its price.
