It seems like just yesterday that I missed a day of school to travel up north into Central Washington to pick-up the newest member of our family. Driving home, he was immediately dissatisfied with traveling in his crate and ended up making the journey home asleep in my lap and it hasnâ€™t changed much since, even though heâ€™s quadrupled in size.Â Growing up, Rusty was another brother. Always protective, an endless playmate and I even had to share the backseat on family road trips with him, wrestling for who got the most room and always losing.
Aside from being a brother, Rusty is also a top-notch bird dog, but youâ€™ll have to read that story on the bottle of wine dedicated to Rusty himself, ourÂ Rusty Red. A complex wine with rich, jammy blackberry, hints of chocolate, a bit of smoke and a touch of earthiness. A little bit of everything, just like Rusty isÂ to ourÂ family.
We invite you out to say hello to Rusty and of course have a glass of wine. AndÂ keep an eye out for our newest family member, Rhett, a bundle ofÂ exuberant puppyÂ racing around the grounds. Something tells me that his tribute wine will be a bit more spicy.
