Washington State, USA

Upsidedown Wines is sourced from some of Washington State’s top vineyards. Kitzke Family Vineyards sits high up on Candy Mountain overlooking the Tri-Cities in Washington. Acreage on Candy Mountain is sparse, making for limited terroir-driven wines that are full bodied and structured. Dead poplar vineyard lies in Yakima Valley and produces floral aromatic reds with great depth.

The Gold Drop Candy Ridge Vineyard is a more darker fruited, earthy effort that has a medium-bodied, nicely textured, balanced style on the palate. This boasts an array of ripe dark plums and blackberries with oak spice that’s nicely laced throughout the nose and palate.

Medium ruby hue is followed by a pretty, medium-bodied, elegant wine with fine tannins, good overall balance, and Côtes du Rhône-like notes of ripe strawberry and cherry fruits as well as peppery spice and floral hints. Aromas of red plums, raspberries, earth and herbs. Juicy and layered with excellent texture.
