2012 Super Tuscan Blend
Cut Bank Estate Vineyard, Walla Walla Valley, WA
Walla Walla Vintners
What we love
A product of the classic and age-worthy 2012 vintage and made by the “Pacific Northwest Winery of the Year,” this ‘Super Tuscan' bottling is produced from Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It displays juicy notes of red and dark fruit, earthy spice, leather, and medium tannins. Velvety, smooth, and super versatile on the table.
About this Wine
This deliciously rustic wine marries the spice and brightness of Sangiovese with the tannins of the Cabernet, while saving a space in the middle for the plush and fruity Merlot which ties them all together. Vottavo can only be found at the winery’s tasting room, a few select restaurants, and here on Pollux! This is glorious stuff and its $60 price tag is more than justified. Enjoy!
Drink now through 2025.

Walla Walla Vintners
Walla Walla Vintners is one of Washington State’s first and most revered wineries, started by pioneering winemakers Myles Anderson and Gordy Venneri. The string of success they’ve achieved in their decade of working together help earn Walla Walla Vintners the award of 2016 Pacific Northwest Winery of the Year.
The winery, in the shadow of the Blue Mountains, is one of the most picturesque in the state. It reflects Gordy, Myles and their tight knit team’s commitment to sustainable wine-making, environmental values and a love of the beautiful place they live. Since the beginning their focus remains squarely on their customers: treating them as friends who are always welcome.
Walla Walla Vintners continues their limited production of award-winning red wines, widely regarded as consistently high-quality, at prices below many of their peers.
