Dr. Wolfe’s Family Red is the signature red blend of Thurston Wolfe Winery. Zinfandel (62 %), Petite Sirah (29%), and Lemberger (9%) make up this fusion of varietals. The 2017 vintage could have not been any better. The warm early parts of the growing season combined with a cooler harvest revealed wines with deep red color and dark fruit aromatics. The Lemberger is the real hero of this story. It added light spicy hints which elevated the entirety of the blend creating something only capable of the Yakima Valley’s growing region.
