Covington Cellars Rough House Red 2011

$15.92$19.99 (PA tax not included)

90 points, Wine Enthusiast. The Covington Cellars Rough House derives its name from the nickname of owner David Lawson’s unit during his military service. This wine delivers a lot of bold character and rich fruit at a price that belies its small production. Easy to enjoy now or capable of another 3-5 years in the bottle.

“Each year Covington Cellars is proud to make Rough House Red in tribute to those who serve and who have served is the US Armed Forces. We hope you’ll remember these extraordinary patriots as you raise your glass.”

David and Cindy Lawson’s winemaking philosophy has always been simple: starting with great grapes diminishes the need to intervene and allows the varietal to speak authentically for itself.  Since our founding in 2002, our dedication to quality and attention to detail has been evident in all 14 vintages we’ve been privileged to produce. 

Our success is dependent on only a few things: great vineyard partnerships, an unwavering passion and desire to be the best, and the daily hard work of the Covington Cellars team. Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese are our flagship varietals; and our goal will always be to make the most delicious examples of those wines in the state of Washington.  We invite you to join us in that journey.
