Born out of our love of wine, Shannon Faye Winery is truly a labor of love. My wife Shannon and I made a decision that we wanted to produce high quality wines that we could sell at a more affordable price than most wines of the same caliber.
All Shannon Faye wine is produced from high quality grapes sourced from the Yakima Valley very close to the base of Red Mountain. We pick up the grapes immediately after harvest and rush them back to our small facility at our home in Colbert where just the two of us process them. This usually takes a full 24 hours of non-stop work but we believe it is very important to use only the freshest grapes when producing our wines. From crush to bottle to label all work is performed by only the two of us to insure you our customer receives only the highest quality product we can produce.
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
Holy cherry vanilla! Aromas of cherry blossom with a hint of vanilla. Full bodied with big, dark, peppery-spicy fruit with a slight smoky oak on the palate. This wine is big and is going to cellar for years to come!
2012 Resurrection Red
"Taken from the vine and brought back as wine"
80% Merlot/20% Cabernet Sauvignon red blend. Oh this magical wine offers so much complexity and depth with a mile long finish. A true Bordeaux blend offering aromas of minerality and spun sugar/creme brûlée. Full bodied with red and black fruit compote, graphite with slight sweet oak and a plush velvety texture on the palate.
A big dark fruit Merlot with aromas of black forest cake and cocoa. Deep ruby color with great mouth feel, very smooth with blackberry, dried black cherry, tapering off with notes of fennel on the palate.
Off dry Riesling, nice balance and acidity, a very user friendly white wine. Aromas of fresh sweet lemon zest, wild flower and citron fruit. Green apple and pear with a light to medium mouth feel on the palate.
