Our inaugural 2011 vintage of Ferguson was awarded Best Bordeaux Blend in the World at the 2014 Decanter World Wine Awards in London! Ferguson is one of the highest elevation vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley reflecting a unique geological profile. The vines, planted on a ridge of ancient lava flows, are rooted in fractured basalt giving this complex blend its bold dark fruit, immense structure and dense minerality.
