The 2019 Awesome has a defined blackcurrant and cocoa aroma on the nose. You’ll find a delicious blend of blackberry, vanilla and nutmeg on the palate, followed by a splash of Awesome.
We are releasing a special wine this month in honor of a very special little girl who was a part of the Sigillo Cellars family. She passed away from childhood cancer in August of 2020.
As part of this special release, we are donating 10% of each bottle purchase back to Seattle Children’s Cancer Care to help other children and families going through childhood cancer.
This wine was made in her memory and we named it “Awesome” because to Colette, no matter what she was going through, anytime someone asked her how she was doing, her response was always “Awesome”! She was a happy, strong, outgoing little girl and loved being at the winery.
E & E Shaw Vineyards
Our 12 acre vineyard is planted with the 3 major Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, in the world famous Red Mountain Apellation. It was planted for us in 1997 by Eve’s brother, Fred Artz. It’s planted on a 9′ X 6′ spacing, bilateral cordon trained, and is spur pruned to produce approximately 10 lbs. per vine or about 3 1/2 tons per acre. We hand prune, thin and harvest and use no herbicides. We practice integrated pest management with a very soft, sustainable spray program. Because we are small, we can take great care in hand raising our grapes. We believe that exceptional wine is largely made in the vineyard. Our 100% estate grown red wines are proof of the high quality of our vineyard.
