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.

2016 PARABELLUM ALLUVIO

62% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot

Force Majeure Estate Vineyard, Red Mountain AVA

“The 2016 Parabellum Alluvio is the entry-level Bordeaux blend (the second wine, if you will) and it is 62% Cabernet Franc, 15% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Petit Verdot. It’s complex, layered, and incredibly elegant, with silky tannins as well as loads of dried cherries, bouquet garni, crushed rock, and hints of spring flower. I’m always shocked at the quality of this estate’s so-called entry level wines, and this is a beautiful wine in its own right. Drink it any time over the coming 10-15 years.”

2016 PARABELLUM COULÉE

75% Syrah 25% Mourvèdre

Force Majeure Estate Vineyard, Red Mountain AVA

“The entry-level Rhône blend is the 2016 Parabellum Coulee, composed of 75% Syrah and 25% Mourvèdre brought up in 50% new French oak. It’s a beautifully pure, elegant wine that has terrific notes of blueberries, smoked herbs, hints of bacon fat, and spring flowers. It’s ripe and has a slightly more forward, seamless texture than the top cuvée, with remarkable purity and a great finish.”
