Bordeaux Inspired, Washington Crafted

Matthews Sauvignon Blanc

The 2019 Matthews Sauvignon Blanc was crafted using Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon from select vineyards in Washington State, located on the Royal Slope of the Columbia Valley and the southern slopes of the Rattlesnake Mountains of the Yakima Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the fruit was hand-harvested in the early mornings between September 4th and 25th. Upon arriving at the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted and both whole cluster and de-stemmed pressed. It was then fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks (93%) and French oak barrels (7%) before being bottled and released. Only 1,450 cases were produced

  • 2017 Sauvignon Blanc

    This wine is rich but bracing. Ripe and chewy in your mouth, with plenty of bright acidity on the finish.

Subtle notes of green grass, pear, toffee and fennel create a surprisingly complex bouquet, but they don't prevent this from being an easy wine for anyone to love. Like summer, it is beautiful but fleeting. Enjoy this wine in its first, second or possibly third summer, while the volume and fruit are at their peak. This wine is currently not available.

        Matthews Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

        The 2018 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is crafted from two vineyard sites in Washington State AVAs, located in the Yakima Valley and Royal Slope region of the Columbia Valley. Each vineyard is farmed using sustainable practices. For maximum concentration, both vineyards were farmed at one cluster per shoot and then hand-harvested in the early morning between September 10th - September 14th. Upon arriving in the winery, each vineyard lot was hand-sorted, whole cluster pressed and left to settle for 24-48 hours. The wine was fermented in a combination of small concrete eggs and larger French oak puncheons. A small amount of lees was kept with the wine during racking and then moved to two 860L French oak puncheons where it was rolled for 3 months before being settled in bottle on July 3rd, 2019. This wine was evaluated over 40 times by our winemaking team. Only 2 large format barrels were used, resulting in 171 cases

          • 2017 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

            Sauvignon Blanc is the quintessential Bordeaux white, and our source for this varietal in the Yakima Valley provides the quality of fruit that allows us to create our Matthews "Reserve" Sauvignon Blanc. To create this Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, we work with precision to ensure these flavors are balanced and accentuated. Explosive aromatics are met with a mouthfeel that is complex and textured. This wine grows in depth from the bouquet to the first sip, and it will continue to develop for years to come. This wine is currently not available. Join the mailing list to stay informed about Matthews releases. Tasting Notes: Intense notes of lemon and lime rind, grapefruit, lychee and under-ripe pineapple. Swirling adds green guava, fresh jalapeno and herbs. The palate is vibrant, structured and angular. Delivering citrus, wet stone minerality and a lemon lifted finish. This is built for aging, so let it breathe early on. Wine Facts: Labeled Appellation: Yakima Valley; Vineyard(s): Boushey Vineyard; Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc; Aging: Concrete egg and barrel aged for 8 months; Alcohol: 13.6%; Cases Produced: 211; Drinkability: Now-2023

            • 2016 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

              The Reserve is a blend of fruit from Boushey Vineyard in Yakima Valley and Stillwater Creek Vineyard on the Royal Slope. Boushey provides the freshness, with lower sugar levels and terrific aromatic complexity. Stillwater brings a more viscous mouthfeel with a tropical burst of green guava and passionfruit. Together, they deliver a multi-layered wine that balances fresh fruit and bright acidity, delivering a crisper, greener profile. This wine is currently not available. Join the mailing list to stay informed about Matthews releases. Tasting Notes: Dense and penetrating with white flowers, lychee, guava, pineapple rind and under-ripe apricot. Swirling brings up sweet fruit, wet slate, complex herbs, gooseberry and key lime pie. The palate is fresh, firm and beautifully textured. It is much more generous than the Columbia Valley and exudes class and refinement. This is a baby and will be worth trying over the next five years.

                • 2017 Rosé

                  The 2017 Matthews Rosé is 100% Cabernet Franc, a combination of clones 623 and 327. The Cabernet Franc for this rosé comes exclusively from the Sol Aksents Vineyard on the Royal Slope. Sol Aksents means "sun access" in Norwegian, and it is so named because the rows were deliberately planted off the traditional north/south axis in order to align them perfectly with the sun's transit and protect the vines from the midday heat, which can hasten the ripening process. This wine is currently not available. Join the mailing list to stay informed about Matthews releases. Tasting Notes: White tea, peaches and cream with citrus zest start the nose. Swirling brings up dried strawberry, flowers and watermelon. The palate is juicy, with fleshy stone fruit, vibrant acidity and a finish that reminds me of strawberry panna cotta. Irresistible to drink now but will continue to develop over the next 6-9 months.

                  • 2016 Rosé

                    The rich aromatic profile belies a crisp taste and bone-dry finish. It's a casual wine with a surprising amount of character. The lower alcohol adds to its sweet plushness, and brings out notes of nectarine and white peach that are perfectly balanced with the green herbaceousness and subtle minerality that is characteristic of Cabernet Franc. There is a lightness, both in color and taste, but this rose has layers... be ready. This wine is currently not available. Join the mailing list to stay informed about Matthews releases. Tasting Notes: Pale, with an extremely fresh nose of lime zest, pink grapefruit, cantaloupe and wet stone. After a few minutes it shows aromas of light strawberry syrup, lavender flower and white pear. The palate is as fresh as the nose with a light body and lean texture, vibrant minerality and a long finish.

                    Matthews Cuvée

                    The 2017 Cuvée is a red wine blend crafted from several vineyards in two Washington State regions: the Royal Slope (Stillwater Creek + Solaksen and Scarline of Lawrence Vineyards) and the Walla Walla Valley (Pepper Bridge). Farmed using sustainable practices, the fruit growing was controlled to between 4 to 4.5 tons per acre, depending on the varietal. October 17th was the last day of picking, and all grapes were harvested by hand early in the morning before arriving at the winery. Each cluster was further berry sorted by hand, and each lot was then fermented in either a concrete or stainless steel tank. To maintain elegance, only the resulting free run juice was used for this wine. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to 26% new French oak barrels for cellaring with every barrel evaluated over 40 times by our winemaking team. After 15 months, 25 barrels were blended, and less than a week later on February 26th, 2019, the limited Cuvée production of only 617 cases was bottled

                                With the Claret you get more complexity, more fruit, more texture—a little bit more of everything—than you might expect from a wine at this price point. It's a gently oaked, medium-full bodied wine with great texture and a long, graceful finish. The flavor profile is classic, approachable, and incredibly consistent year after year. Expect to taste plenty of ripe fruit—plum, currant, blackberry, strawberry—with hints of vanilla, clove and tobacco. This wine is designed to be drinkable, now and well into its teenage years.

                                Matthews Reserve Claret

                                The 2017 Matthews Reserve Claret was crafted from several small vineyard parcels across two separate AVAs in Washington State: Columbia Valley and Red Mountain. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were limited to one cluster per shoot or three clusters per spur to create maximum concentration in each cluster. They were hand-harvested in the early morning between September 8th – October 28th. Upon arriving in the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted, berry-sorted, and then fermented in either stainless steel (70%) or concrete (30%) tanks. Using only the free-run wine, it was then moved to custom French oak barrels (89% new) for 30 months of cellaring with over 40 individual evaluations by our winemaking team. The resulting 18 barrels were bottled, without fining or filtration, on April 18th, 2019, producing only 445 cases

                                    The Reserve Claret is the flagship of wines Matthews produces. Our goal is to produce the highest intensity of flavor and mouthfeel, while retaining elegance.

                                      The flavor profile of the Reserve Claret is complex, ripe, and balanced. It is a harmony of ripe fruit and rich, savory notes. This is a wine that is designed to thrill, but not to overwhelm. If you like the Claret, expect something similar only more... more intensity, more texture, more detail... tannins that are slightly softer and finer. Look for strong, brooding flavors of Bing cherry, black currant, plum, vanilla and dark berries, with notes of cassis, tobacco, leafy herbs, spring flowers, licorice and chalkboard dust. It is incredibly drinkable on release, but it promises to age gracefully, gaining complexity and detail for years—even decades—to come. Enjoy it, but save some... it'll be worth the wait.

Tasting Notes: Smoky raspberry, spice and vanilla bean over plum skin, black currant and strawberry puree. Dense and tightly wound with impeccable purity and presence.

                                          This Bordeaux inspired blend is seductive, velvety and loaded with personality. Merlot leads, Cab Franc follows, and Cabernet Sauvignon fills in any tiny gaps that are left. This is a thinker's wine—deep, complex, but less in your face than its cab-led sibling. In the Matthews style, it delivers a lot of power and concentration, but with more nuance than you might expect from new world blends. In Bordeaux, the Merlot-led right bank blends are revered for their nuance. Washington Merlot shares many similarities with the French tradition—more so than with California even—but we're not striving to copy Bordeaux or Pomerol. We'd rather to pay homage to it while celebrating a grape that is too often (and unfairly) maligned in the new world. This is truly one of the world's most classic blending styles, with each varietal providing the one small thing that the others are missing to create a remarkably balanced, complex and approachable wine. This wine is currently not available. Join the mailing list to stay informed about Matthews releases. Tasting Notes: The Matthews Merlot presents with smoky blue and black fruit—plum, blackberry, blueberry—with a resinous, almost leathery undertone. We love to bring out the darker, more brooding side of Merlot, and balance it with the touch of graphite, chocolate and green aromatics from the Cab Franc. This wine has understated tannins and a silky, sensuous texture. It's too easy to drink, but impossible not to think about. We set out to create a wine that delivers early drinkability, but will continue to show well for 12 years at least, and remain beautifully drinkable through 20 or more.

This is a really fun wine to drink, but it won't beat you up with too much tannin. Bordeaux-style blends are famously terroir driven, and ours is no exception. Cabernet loves to grow in Washington, where our arid climate, large temperature swings and long growing seasons give us the powerfully ripe fruit you'd expect from California, with more of the balance, complexity and freshness you'd expect from a French blend. Matthews Cabernet, in particular, is characterized by its intense spice, silky texture and excellent transitions. This wine is currently not available. Join the mailing list to stay informed about Matthews releases. Tasting Notes: A dense and fresh nose of blackberry jam, plum skin, black currant, vanilla bean and spice. Swirling brings up sweet red fruits reminiscent of ripe strawberry, red currants and black fruits with Asian spices and black tea. The palate is thick with dark fruits, spice and vibrant acidity. Mouthwatering, with a great combination of fruit, spice and tension. Beautifully restrained while providing new world fruit and a plush mouth feel with plenty of age ability.

                                                  • 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

                                                    This is a big, opulent wine that presents with a deep ruby color and loads of ripe black fruit—Cassis, cherry, currant and plum skin. The barrel notes are not subtle either, with tobacco, truffles, and cedar coming through on both the nose and palate. But despite all that show, it's a very composed wine. When contrasted with the sultry, contemplative Matthews Merlot—a right bank inspired Bordeaux blend—the Cabernet is powerful and showy, but still easy to approach and easy to drink. This wine will hit its prime drinking window at around 5 years and continue to show in its youthful form through 12 or even 14 years. This wine is currently not available. Join the mailing list to stay informed about Matthews releases. Tasting Notes: Currants and plums framed beautifully by herbs and spice. Swirling adds sweetness to the fruit and a hint of mocha. The nose is stunningly refined with everything perfectly in its place. The palate has tremendous presence and length with fine, palate coating tannins. An impeccably refined new world Cabernet Sauvignon.

                                                      The 2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted from several vineyards across three separate AVAs in Washington State: Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, and the Walla Walla Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were limited to one or two clusters per shoot for maximum concentration. They were then hand-harvested in the early morning starting in early October, with the final pick coming on November 2nd, 2017. Upon arriving in the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted, berry-sorted, and then fermented in either concrete (43%) or stainless steel (57%) tanks. Using only the free-run wine, it was then moved to custom French oak barrels for 22 months of cellaring with over 40 individual evaluations by our winemaking team. The resulting 16 barrels were bottled, without fining or filtration, on September 16th, 2019, producing only 387 cases

Tasting Notes: Sweetly smoked muddled strawberry and raspberry with vanilla bean and sandalwood while wafting notes of black tea, crème de cassis and blackberry puree prevail. Swirling brings up rich black fruits, dark spices and crème brulee. The palate is rich and dense showing the flare of the vintage with silky tannins and nothing out of place. More of a blockbuster style than previous years with the same precision and purity expected from a Matthews wine.

We liked every wine in the tasting— not just one or two. The experience was enhanced by an amiable server. The winery look is industrial and basic, probably nicer on a warmer day to taste outside.

Made reservation to celebrate friend's birthday but upon arrival, they only have refrigerator with picnic style charcutiere plates ? This should be noted UP FRONT when making reservations.

You are correct that we have limited food options, but we do encourage people to bring their own food, or you can have it delivered to the tasting room from one of the many wonderful restaurants nearby. We hope to see you again soon!

And of course, the tasting fee is waved if you purchase anything. Just a lovely experience.

Our wine server was very knowledgeable about the wines and gave us a brief description of flavor and nose. I really enjoyed that part of our tasting. Will always stop in to Matthews when wine tasting.

Unfortunately Open Table does not have an option for breweries or wineries to be listed as such. Because of this we have to be listed as a restaurant. We do have some charcuterie and crudité available. Guests are also more than welcome to bring in their own food or order food to Matthews. Thank you again for stopping in and we hope to see you soon!

The staff was knowledgeable and wanted to tell us about the wine and the history of The winery. What a great winery and the Otis family should be proud of the Ladies working at the winery the day after thanksgiving. Well Done!!! Excited to return.
