Tasting notes

Floral notes, blackberry, black currants, plums and spice. Swirling adds sweetness to the fruit but it’s still mouthwateringly fresh.  Hints of black tea, macerated red and black berries carry the vibrant, polished and utterly drinkable palate. The finish is long with soft but present tannins. A perfect every day wine. - Aryn Morell

89 points - Jeb Dunnuck | The 2015 The Don Lawrence Estate is a value-priced blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah, 3% Grenache, and 1% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, all aged 20 months in 30% new French and American oak. It offers a sweetly fruited, charming style as well as plenty of spice, incense, and cassis-like fruits. With rock solid balance and a good finish, it has plenty of character and is worth the money.

All Gård wines are the product of Lawrence Vineyards designated by the Columbia Valley AVA in Royal City, Washington.

Winemaker Aryn Morell, a Washington native, honed his skills in Napa Valley working with some of the country’s most notable producers, including Silver Oak, Joseph Phelps, Quintessa, Husic, Chimney Rock, Chappellet, Stags Leap and countless others in winemaking and the chemical engineering of wine as part of a consulting company for which he worked.

Aryn joined the Gard team as head winemaker in 2011, and spends considerable time in the winery’s estate vineyard with Josh Lawrence, Gard founder and viticulturist.  With an uncompromising attention to detail, Aryn carefully crafts Gard wines with an eye toward the unique expression of terroir of the estate vineyard, and earns frequent accolades and high acclaim for his wines.

In 2014, Aryn and Gard founders Josh and Lisa Lawrence launched a winemaking facility in Walla Walla, M&L Production, where all the Gård wines are produced, bottled and aged. Aryn also makes wine for Matthews Estate, Tenor, Alleromb and Mullan Road, a Washington project for Cakebread Cellars of California.
