Long Shadows is the name of a portfolio of 7 brands that began in 2000 as an exercise to demonstrate the world class quality of Washington State viticulture. In 2003, Allen Shoup selected master winemakers from around the world whom he felt could showcase the pinnacle of what the noble varietals/blends, grown on the best sites in the Columbia Valley, could achieve. He partnered with each of them on their projects and gave them creative license and necessary resources to develop each project as they saw fit. Every year each of the wines receives high ratings from highly esteemed wine publications. Gilles Nicault of Woodard Canyon fame and the Allen Shoup of Chateau Ste. Michelle fame are responsible for the Chester Kidder Red Blend 2014. Don't miss out winelovers!

Jeb Dunnuck: "The Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated 2017 Chester-Kidder is another more closed, reserved wine that's loaded with potential. Cassis, toasted spices, violets, and leafy herb notes give way to a rich, full-bodied red that has ripe, velvety tannins, a rounded, mouth-filling texture, and one heck of a great finish. Give bottles 3-5 years if you can and it should be very long lived. Maturity: May 2021
