Because you're gonna seem cultured if it's the last thing you do!

Look at you all standing over there with that group of International Business doctoral students all nodding like you know exactly what they mean when they say that China is devaluing their currency. But you know what? It totally doesn't matter. You just keep smiling and swirling your glass of Chard or Pinot or whatever else you ended up buying from this Woot-Off while interjecting the occasional remark about tannins and flavor notes and whatnot. No one will even notice you're completely out of your element when it comes to the economic strategies of foreign powers.

Back to the Woot-Off!

Features

2007 Eclipse Red Blend 750ml 2-Pack

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petite Syrah all come together in Palouse Winery's signature blend red wine - Eclipse. They sample, taste, blend and reblend until the best qualities of each varietal are brought forward into this syzygy of intense red and black fruit flavors enhanced by the toasty oak and spicy notes.  This elegant wine starts big, bold, and buttery on the nose; full of dark fruit and spice. Layers of flavors, cherries, spice, currant, and cassis are full and multi-dimensional. This wine will complement a wide variety of different foods.

2008 Eclipse Red Blend 750ml 2-Pack

The goal of every winery is to create consistency year after year.  Palouse Winery's Eclipse is a perfect example of that.  As with the previous vintage, this wine starts big, bold, and buttery on the nose. Full of dark fruit and spice with layers of flavors, cherries, spice, currant, and cassis are full and multi-dimensional.

Our wines are aged in 100% French oak barrels, imparting subtle toast, vanilla, & spice flavors.
