EXTRA! EXTRA! Terra Blanca Sweeps Seattle Wine Awards!


The Seattle Wine Awards, one of Washington’s most prestigious wine-judging events, released their 2014 results yesterday, June 3. Terra Blanca submitted seven wines for judging:

  • 2009 Arch Terrace Merlot
  • 2009 Arch Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 2009 Arch Terrace Syrah
  • 2009 Arch Terrace Triple Threat
  • 2009 Signature Series Block 8 Syrah
  • 2009 ONYX
  • 2009 Signature Series Batholith


After rigorous tasting and scoring, the judges have made their decisions: Terra Blanca wins seven medals!


Most notable was the 2009 Signature Series Batholith, winning Double Gold in the same category as other Red Mountain wines. As the newest wine on our tasting list, the Batholith has wasted no time in becoming a favorite of guests and staff alike. We always knew the new kid would make it big!

Also notable are the performances of our Syrahs: Double Golds for both! Fans of big Syrah will love the Signature Series Block 8, and the judges agreed that this dark and luscious wine deserved top honors in the $35.01 and over Syrah category. As the anchor wine in our Signature Series Flight, the Block 8 now has another reason to shine.


The Arch Terrace Syrah is also the best of the best in its category (Double Gold in $25.01-$35 Syrahs), proving that it has what it takes to stand up with the big boys with its fruit-forward and spicy nature. Don’t take this Syrah lightly; it still packs quite the flavorful punch.


Of the remaining wines, the 2009 Arch Terrace Triple Threat walked out with a Gold for Red Proprietary Blends ($20.01-$35), the 2009 ONYX won Gold in its category (no surprises there), and the Arch Terrace Merlot and Cab. Sauv. both earned silvers.


Terra Blanca is batting a thousand so far and just in time for the season to really pick up. Join us in the Tasting Room to try our wines and let them prove to your palate that they are award worthy.


Veni, Vidi, Vinum!
