Issaquah winery wins additional acclaim
July 1, 2014
Issaquah-based Tiger Mountain Winery received a Double-Gold Grand Award of Excellence for its 2012 Cuvée Noir (a Rhône-Style blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault).
The historic Arctic Club Hotel hosted the 2014 Seattle Wine Awards, featuring a world-class local, national and international tasting panel of wine professionals who tasted and evaluated hundreds of wines in a single blind format (meaning grape variety or wine style is known, but not vintage, price or producer) and recognized the top wines with Double Gold, Gold, Silver and Bronze Grand Awards of Excellence.
This latest recognition follows three other awards for this same top wine that include:
- April 2 — Double Gold Medal, Great Northwest Wine Competition.
- May 8 — Gold Medal Best of Class, Riverside International Wine Competition.
- June 3 — Silver Medal, Sunset Magazine.
Tiger Mountain Winery is a small, family-run business producing small batch wines since 2006. Wines are available online or at select retail outlets.
