Yakima Valley AVA
Dick Boushey’s vineyard, located near Sunnyside, is a cooler site and therefore perfect for Merlot, which often ripens too quickly at other sites. Boushey’s Merlot harvests well into October due to the coolness of the site, lower yields and conservative water use. This long hang-time gives the wines great expression and depth. Dick Boushey is also producing some of the best syrah in the state as well, which is an important part of our Doyenne.
