PARABELLUM WINES

by Force Majeure

Made utilizing meticulously farmed grapes from the estate vineyard on Red Mountain, these Washington State wines receive the same care and attention in both winemaking and viticulture as the upper-tier Force Majeure wines. Our goal with Parabellum is to produce two beautiful and approachable wines that are reflective of their varieties and terroir, without constraints on blending. These wines will age gracefully for years, yet are crafted with an eye toward more immediate consumption. Parabellum provides an opportunity to savor an authentic wine of distinction at a great value.

2015 PARABELLUM ALLUVIO

54% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot

Force Majeure Estate Vineyard, Red Mountain AVA

“The entry-level cuvée of the estate, the 2015 Parabellum Bordeaux is another mineral-laced effort that dishes up tons of ripe cassis and blackcurrant fruit, full-bodied richness and surprising structure and tannic grip on the palate. Nevertheless, it’s a sexy red that’s going to drink beautifully on release or with just short term cellaring. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, the two entry-level wines from this estate compete, or surpass, most estates’ top wines.”

2015 PARABELLUM COULÉE

56% Syrah 44% Mourvèdre

Force Majeure Estate Vineyard, Red Mountain AVA

“The Rhône Blend entry cuvee is the 2015 Parabellum Rhone, and this beauty offers up ripe, rounded notes of peppery herbs, black fruits, hints of chocolate and licorice in a full-bodied, mouth-filling, textured package. It has terrific purity and is a downright sexy red to drink over the coming 5-6+ years. There are just 200 cases made.”
