Paplow 2014 Boushey Vineyard G-S-M (Yakima Valley)
91 POINTS & Editors’ Choice
"This inaugural release from Ben Paplow, assistant winemaker at Gorman Winery, is a blend of 67% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 9% Cinsault and 4% Viognier—all cofermented and aged in neutral oak. Its blackberry jam, white pepper, flower and orange rind aromas are followed by smooth, polished fruit and meat flavors. It displays a lot of purity and finesse."
-Sean Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast
Paplow Cellars is a boutique wine project begun in 2014. Currently we are proud to offer a single wine; a GSM produced entirely from Boushey Vineyards fruit in Yakima Valley.
This blend is is co-fermented, meaning the wine was entirely grown together, picked together, and aged together. It was aged for 18 months in neutral French oak. Only four barrels were produced in 2014.
Ben Paplow has been making wine in Woodinville since 2007. He began working at EFESTE during harvest, and his thirst for knowledge quickly elevated him to assistant winemaker in 2009. Since 2012 he has been working at Gorman Winery as an integral part of the wine-making team.
