Mullan Road Cellars Red Blend

Mullan Road Cellars is a journey into Washington winemaking led by Dennis Cakebread of Cakebread Cellars. Drawn by the high quality of wines and the camaraderie of the Walla Walla wine community, Dennis and winemaker Aryn Morell set out to create an elegant, complex Bordeaux-style red blend. Fruit comes from three prime locations: the famed Seven Hills Vineyard on the southern edge of the Walla Walla Valley contributes tannin and structure, Stillwater Creek Vineyard on the Royal Slope of the Frenchman Hills adds brawn and volume, and Lawrence Vineyards in the Frenchman Hills lend elegance. Dennis named his wine “Mullan Road Cellars” in honor of Lieutenant John Mullan, who built the first wagon trail across the Rockies over 600 miles from Ft. Benton in Montana to Ft. Walla Walla in Washington.
