Red Wine Blend
Horse Heaven Hills
13.9% Alc

BLACK combines multiple wines from our 2013 vintage. Through constant tasting and testing of each barrel of wine during the aging process, we select the barrels of wine that offer the best representation of each varietal in creating this savory well balanced red wine blend. 

BLACK is comprised of 68% Merlot, 21% Petite Sirah, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. BLACK was aged for 36 months in 75% French Oak and 25% American oak barrels, both once-used. 

The deep red color draws you into smells of fresh ripe dark fruits. Tastes of warm blueberries, black cherry finish with a hint of warm toast.

Introducing the 2014 Rhyme | Reason Syrah from Konnowac Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA.

This wine is 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier. Made in the French Côte Rôtie style, co-fermenting both Syrah and Viognier from the start. This wine was aged in once-filled French oak barrels for 36 months.

This Syrah has a dark opaque purple color that lingers on the side of the glass as you swirl.

The Co-ferment of Viognier adds aromas of fragrant raspberry, violets and bacon. Flavors of dark ripe warm summer plum, blackberry and a hint of leather, finishing with firm yet soft tannins and subtle fresh-cracked black pepper.

2016 PORCH
Rosé of Syrah
Rattlesnake Hills
13.4% Alc. by Vol.

Our 2016 PORCH is a Rosé of Syrah from Konnowac Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA. This wine was fermented and aged in 100% Stainless Steel tanks. 

The name PORCH for me signifies a wine that can be enjoyed on a sunny day on the Porch, deck or patio or wherever you find your peaceful solace.  We even break out a bottle Rose’ in the dead of winter when we just need to put our spirits into a summertime mood.

As it swirls in your glass, the wine gives aromas of warm strawberry fields. Flavors of cranberries balanced with ripe summer plums, finishing with slight tannins and a hint of spice, which are key characteristics of Washington State Syrah.

The 2016 Perseverance is 100% Viognier from Konnowac Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA. 

Fermented and aged in 100% Stainless Steel tanks, the amazing characteristics of this fruit shine through.

This Viognier has a soft golden color, aromas of honeysuckle, flavors of pineapple, finishing crisp and refreshing. Perfect with appetizers or as a simple glass on the patio. 

The label on our 2016 Perseverance is a one of a kind piece from Seattle Artist Jesse Link. It depicts the need to “Persevere” and find the optimism in all. 

In our home, we often marvel at our youngest daughter’s one track mind to get what she wants at any cost and note that her “Perseverance” will be a valuable asset in her future.  We couldn’t help but recognize the same perseverance in our efforts to bring this delicious wine to your table. 

Viscon Cellars is a family-owned West Seattle winery focused on small lot production, sourcing fruit from premier Washington grape growers. We believe that great wine should be a part of everyday life.  We make and share approachable wines, delicious when paired with an everyday or special meal, or simply enjoyed with friends.

2013 UNFORESEEN Cabernet Franc

2012 UNFORESEEN
Cabernet Franc
Yakima Valley
13.2% Alc. by Vol.

Unforeseen is a beautiful surprise at our winery. Cabernet Franc is typically used as a blending wine. However this Cab Franc would not stand for second billing. While creating the wines for our 2012 release, this wine continued to impress on its own. Not one to deviate from the plan, I kept trying to blend out this wine into other wines in our lineup. This Cab Franc would have nothing to do with it, kept shining on its own. I finally gave in and let it stand on its own, and stand it has.  

The 2012 Unforeseen is 98% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 30 months in 100% French oak, once filled, this wine earned a home in our wine offering.

The dark red ruby color invites you to lift the glass and swirl and smell. The smell is warm and inviting, hints of spice with bright red raspberries. Tastes of bing cherries and cola, this wine finishes with a slight hint of warm toast.
